Getting Smart Podcast | It’s a Project-Based World and a PBL Movement

We attended PBL World, a conference held annually by the Buck Institute for Education (BIE) in Napa, California, to dive deeper into high quality project-based learning (PBL), and had the opportunity to hear from education leaders who are investing in high quality PBL to transform the lives of young people.
In this podcast, you will hear from some edleaders we spoke with with including Ashanti Branch of Ever Forward Club, Gia Truong from Envision Education and Bob Lenz from BIE and learn why they are invested in PBL.
