Interviewed by Lorrie Holmes
As Swiss Psychologist, Jean Piaget, once stated, “Knowledge is a consequence of experience.”
There is a lot of truth to this statement and as education continues to evolve, Project-Based Learning (PBL) has become more recognized. In fact, many schools have actually taken on a Project Based Learning Model in offering their students the opportunity to apply many of their core learnings to these projects as part of their curriculum.
Today we are sharing an interview I recently conducted for BC Parent Newsmagazine on two leaders in our education community on project based education – Paul Romani, Director of Pear Tree School and Owen Hann, V.P. of Operations for Steamoji – about what Project Based Learning means to them and their students, how they go about offering such emergent programs, and what they feel the benefits are for the students who engage in these programs.
