In this episode, Josh and Andrea continue to explore the elements that make PBL work. At 2:41, they interview Coleman Marshall (@cmmarshall4212), a PBL facilitator from the STEAM Academy Lexington, KY about the “non-negotiables” of a PBL, as well as the elements that really determine whether or not he considers a project to be successful. At 10:15, they interview Dr. Jose Martinez (@hellahoosier), a professor of education from Franklin College in Indiana. Using his research with PBL students in the college environment, Dr. Martinez discusses the elements of PBL that help set students apart after high school.
