Project-Based World

In this year long campaign titled “It’s a Project-Based World,” Getting Smart is exploring the economic realities of a project-based world as part of the equity movement to ensure all students are prepared for college, career and citizenship. The purpose of this project is to promote equity and access to deeper learning outcomes for all students. We are cultivating a blog series exploring topics around the preparation of students, teachers and leaders for a project-based world. In addition to the blog series, the campaign includes podcast interviews, publications, infographics and speaking engagements. For more see our It's a Project-based World campaign page.
