Problem Based Learning explained
Collaboration and problem solving are at the core of Problem Based Learning (PBL) says Prep and Upper School Director of Teaching and Learning Christopher Federico. He presented to the Parent Association November meeting about PBL and answered a series of questions from the audience. Among other strengths, Mr. Federico says PBL allows students to retain information more efficiently since trial and error and experiential, hands-on interaction makes subject matter more "sticky". Thanks to the internet and Google, information is far more readily available. Experts are finding it's how our students are using "information at their finger tips" that will define how they best navigate the global economy.
