Project-based learning engages students in deep thinking while connecting their learning in the classroom to the world around them. Tech4Learning can help you bring a project-based learning approach to the classrooms of your school or district.
Over the past 15 years, Tech4Learning has developed a unique professional development model that helps teachers get started transforming their classrooms to project-based learning environments. During our PBL ProjectLearn Academies, educators experience firsthand the process of planning, working in a collaborative group with peers, and learning in a project-based setting. Participants return ready to begin implementing changes into their everyday instruction and helping students build essential content and 21st century skills.

Every ProjectLearn Academy is designed specifically to help you meet the goals of your professional development program and customized to support the learning needs of your teachers.
