While project-based learning can be traced back to centuries-old theory, new research shows how it is linked to a variety of efforts for change in innovative schools.
Is project-based learning design consistent across grade levels, school demographics, and geographic regions? How common is PBL relative to other approaches to instructional innovation? Are all students getting access to PBL? These types of questions are what led the Christensen Institute to work with a range of partners to launch the Canopy project.
