Through the intelligent use of technology, combined with new approaches to education, a more personalized style of learning can be realized.
The human touch is the most valuable element in education. Teachers, administrators, and parents play critical roles in coaching and guiding students through the learning process, nurturing students' interests and confidence as learners.
When students work together on project teams, they learn to collaborate, communicate, and resolve conflicts. Cooperative learning and character development supports the social and emotional development of students and prepares them for success in the modern workplace.
Long term and student centered, project learning is a rigorous hands-on approach to learning core subject matter and basic skills with meaningful activities that examine complex, real-world issues. Project learning helps students develop and retain useful, working knowledge of subjects that are often taught in isolation and abstraction.
Effective assessment should measure the full range of student ability -- social, emotional, and academic achievement. Through various measures, including portfolios, presentations, and tests, multiple learning styles are supported.
