”My students’ worlds are more meaningful because they now have an understanding of their role in it. The sense of empowerment they have learned through this curriculum makes them better global citizens and members of their own communities. That’s every teacher’s dream!Landon GarvikC.W.

We also offer training programs to help teachers unlock student innovation
Our Project-Based Learning Academy is a full-featured suite of training and support programs that shifts the traditional paradigms of academic instruction. Our sole objective is to motivate teachers to transform their instructional practices so they become facilitators of learning and for students to transform from passive observers of the educational process into active participants.
Professional Development Training
We provide year-round, face-to-face and/or online professional development for teachers, which introduces the curriculum, the Eco-Audit Grant process, and instructional best practices rooted in design thinking and project-based learning. Our goal is to create innovative, hand-on trainings that challenge participants to reconsider their assumptions, take risks, and think out of the box–in support of specific learning objectives.
