Welcome to Being Makers…
A Journal of Project-Based Learning
Project-based learning (PBL) has always been at the core of the iLEAD and Maker Learning Network model because we believe it is at the heart of how kids learn best. We’ve seen time and again how PBL helps learners develop academic skills, build leadership skills and character, and lay the foundation for promising careers.
This site is a resource for all iLEAD and Maker Learning Network facilitators and like-minded educators to read insightful articles on PBL and social-emotional learning, as well as review inspiring projects. We encourage you to use these resources for inspiration and guidelines for your own projects with learners.
Thank you for being part of our continual journey to help learners make strides through deeper learning with PBL!
