“Students of today enter an increasingly globalized world in which technology plays a vital role.They must be good communicators as well as great collaborators. The new work environment requires  responsibility and the ability to self-manage as well as the interpersonal and project-management skills needed for teamwork and leadership.

Enter project-based learning, designed to put students into a students-as- workers setting in which they learn collaboration, critical-thinking, and written- and oral- communication skills along with the values of a strong work ethic, all while meeting state or national content standards.”
