how do we
Drive student outcomes?
We provide teachers with all of the essential project design elements they need to implement and assess high-quality project based learning: interdisciplinary performance tasks, literacy tasks, engaging videos, research resources, an assessment manager and more. Real-world videos set the stage for each lesson by showing the practical application of STEM educational concepts within a company/industry. Performance and literacy tasks built around a specific job ask the students to apply the knowledge learned in a real-world scenario.
A Research-based framework
Our standards-aligned performance tasks follow the research-based Understanding by Design (UbD™) framework by award-winning author and educator Jay McTighe and the late Grant Wiggins. The UbD framework provides teachers with a cohesive planning guide and structure for PBL implementation.
