School is not about the information. It isn’t just a pile of books or a series of lectures — it was a place where you went to find and discover yourself. School is about being in an environment where growth, experimentation, and exploration are encouraged.
Put the phrase “project-based learning” into a search engine and the results could lead you to think that it is a highly successful approach to learning that is thoroughly modern and even transformative in a way never seen before in American public schools.
While project-based learning can indeed be successful and exciting, it is hardly new. It is, in fact, a century old. So why, after 100 years on the shelf, has this approach come roaring back to life?
Much of education policy tends to be cyclical, rather than linear, in nature. The present infatuation with Project Based Learning, or any of its close cousins — Expeditionary Learning, Problem-Based Learning, Deeper Learning, and so on — is the predictable response to the standards and accountability movement that has dominated public education for the past two decades.
