First, a little about project-based learning (PBL): According to the Buck Institute for Education (BIE)–one of the most reputable authorities on PBL–project- or problem-based learning is “a teaching method in which students gain knowledge and skills by working for an extended period of time to investigate and respond to an engaging and complex question, problem, or challenge.”
At TES, we believe that children, even as young as 3 years old, have the capacity to develop creative problem-solving and critical-thinking skills (among myriads of other skills necessary to succeed in the information age). We strive to design projects that incite inquiry, necessitate teamwork, and encourage communication of their learning. By so doing, we hope to lay a foundation for and sow the seeds of learning that will eventually and successfully meet the social and economic demands of the 21st century.
