Students engage with projects that connect the classroom to the real world. When students work in teams to apply what they're learning to projects that mimic and solve real-world problems, they develop strong collaboration, communication and critical thinking skills.
Teachers facilitate these projects while providing students with ongoing coaching and feedback.
In this video, students and teachers discuss a project called "E-Waste". They talk about how it is relevant to the real-world, how it solves a problem, and how students practice specific skills in this project.
