PBL 101 with The Buck Institute Day One

Of the many insights shared today during the first day or RRISD's latest "PBL 101" three-day training from The Buck Institute, the idea that may resonate the most with attendees is that Project Based Learning (PBL) is not looking to dethrone the ARRC. Rather PBL is looking to highlight the opportunities that are already present within RRISD's aligned curriculum.

Many opportunities for collaboration across and within contents and grade levels were shared today. And one lesson learned today was that often all it takes is for a group of skilled educators to be taken away from their daily work and given the opportunity to share their skills with one another for systematic growth to occur. If you want to learn more about the work that RRISD is doing with PBL and The Buck Institute check out the video below.
