The personal learning network for educators

Diana Laboy-Rush, Learning.com's STEM program manager, has written a whitepaper that outlines how an integrated approach to STEM education that is focused on real-world, authentic problems, supports student success. She outlines how project-based learning can support that, providing the research behind PBL.

Request the whitepaper here, and let us know your thoughts. http://bit.ly/paJroU
