Gallup Study Supports Project-Based Learning Featured

"Eighty-seven percent of teachers and 77% of parents agree that teaching approaches that inspire creativity in the learning process have a bigger payoff for students. Yet, students spend most of their time on traditional lessons that do little to encourage creativity, even though the growing availability of technology promises new ways of learning."

These first sentences in a new Gallup research report describe an issue that can be alleviated with increased use of pedagogies that challenge students to think critically and creatively. Project-based learning is perfect for this with its emphasis on taking ownership to solve real problems. Start with this summary on the PBLWorks blog and then read through the easy-to-digest Gallup report.
