Project based learning prepares students for life

While preparing a presentation for the ASCD Annual Conference and Exhibit Show, I came across this remarkable video, produced by Edutopia.org on project-based learning.

What a marvelous example of how project-based learning and assessment can prepare students for life, while helping them perform well on standardized tests -- a bonus that will keep administrators happy. The powerful quotes from great minds, like Howard Gardner, enhance a very insightful production.
