Project Based Learning

Project-Based Learning is a method that involves students in a long-term in-depth investigation of a real world challenge.

Instead of raw memorization of facts or following instructions that present a smooth path to knowledge, students work on a problem that develops several skills simultaneously.

By doing so, they are more likely to retain information, develop their creativity, communication and critical thinking. Plus – they learn how to learn!

Active Learning

“Active learning” means you participate, collaborate with others, and apply concepts to the real world. It requires hard mental effort but leads to better retention and an understanding of the material that can be transferred to other situations.

To understand why active learning works so well, it helps to know that when our brain decides what to remember, it asks itself two fundamental questions: Can I understand? And do I need to know?

TDD, Where Did It All Go Wrong
