Pathway: Application


Project-based learning allows students to develop their problem-solving skills while collaborating with peers on meaningful real-world activities that incorporate academic content. The Project-Based Learning focus area provides educators with the training to design authentic projects that encourage problem-based questioning, research, decision making, ownership, and creating design solutions to solve complex problems.

Our 1:1 coaching methodology centers on the principles of actionable research and job-embedded best practices to provide the most personalized and differentiated approach to meet the needs of our participants. This professional learning is designed to support each participant with what they need, not a one-size-fit all approach. Our Project-Based Learning coaches use the “Try, Measure, Learn” approach to create an ongoing change in practice.


This coaching model and support was developed for teachers, instructional coaches, and leaders.
