Knowledge Sharing Panel: Igniting Inquiry Through Project Based Learning

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

For many, the first step in solving a problem is to start asking questions. By using inquiry, we foster conversation to find a solution and solve the problem. So why does the traditional education system often leave this questioning process out of the classroom in favor of repeated and expected answers? As teachers look to shift and bring a focus on inquiry into their classrooms, they are turning toward Project Based Learning (PBL). PBL encourages students to become the question askers and knowledge seekers, igniting a new level of inquiry in the classroom. Join this great panel of PBL experts as we discuss ways to bring inquiry into the classroom through Project Based Learning.
