Project Based Learning
PBLWorks is entering the professional development space with PBL School Leader Networks. The two-year training program will help principals and their leadership teams implement project-based learning projects at their schools.
The PBL School Networks will provide face-to-face workshops, personal online coaching for each school, school site visits and networking opportunities with other program participants.
The first cohort of PBL School Leader Networks will convene in February 2020 and a second program will launch in Boston in March 2020. Each PBL School Network will consist of up to 10 schools.
The PBLWorks program is an extension of a similar initiative that the company implemented in Hawaii in 2018 called the Hawaii Innovative Leaders Network.
More information about the Los Angeles and Boston School Leader Networks can be found on the PBLWorks website.
