Read this article from Education Week newspaper.

The author, Jonathan Lash, provides a wonderful illustration of the powerful pedagogies of experiential and project-based methodologies, compared to the traditional ‘lecture-test-grade’ model which pervades our educational system.

The applied methodologies of experiential and project-based strategies not only help young people develop critical 4 x Cs skills (communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity) while they are engaged with the core curriculum, but more importantly, this type of education better equips them for success once they leave school – a future, which the author notes, will feature careers which haven’t even been invented yet!
