DEVELOP REAL WORLD SKILLS WITH PROJECT-BASED LEARNING*
Destinations Career Academies have implemented project-based learning (PBL) for many courses. With PBL, students solve realistic problems similar to those they're likely to face after graduation. Teachers aren’t merely lecturers, but coaches and facilitators of students who control their own learning experience. The old competition-based framework of grading curves and high-stakes tests is replaced with collaboration—mirroring the teamwork required to succeed in the modern workplace.
PBL's focus on rigor and realistic projects—often provided by industry partners—helps students in these settings learn as much, if not more, than they would in a traditional classroom environment. Learn more about PBL in the videos below.
