In this year-long campaign titled “It’s a Project-Based World,” Getting Smart explored 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.

In addition to the blog series, the campaign included podcast interviews, publications, infographics and speaking engagements. For more see our It’s a Project-based World campaign page.
