Project-based learning allows students to develop their problem-solving skills while collaborating with peers on meaningful real-world activities that incorporate academic content.
Our focus on project-based learning 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.
When teachers take a project-based approach to teaching and learning, students develop deeper understanding and expand their critical thinking skills. We support skill development through personalized pathways built from BL Connect, Workshops, 1:1 Coaching, and Learning Walks to achieve clear outcomes.

“I have become so much more confident in taking pedagogical risks. I was intimidated by many strategies when I began, and blew them off because I didn't think trying new things would be valuable. By being open minded, my classroom is a much better learning space, and my students seem more confident in themselves.”
“My BetterLesson coach helped me identify what would truly allow my students to become independent and reflective, which will have a profound impact on their learning.”
