YCIS Educators Series - The Benefits of Project-Based Learning

 

How is Project-Based Learning different from traditional learning? Learning is more than just getting the right answers.

Students creatively and holistically explore different fields of knowledge while individual and collaborative learning skills are fostered. Register now to engage with our Primary Co-Principals, students and teachers at an interactive session on “The Benefits of Project-Based Learning”.
