Free Resources and Tools for Replicating Project-Based Learning

Educators from High Tech High in San Diego, California, and the Whitfield Career Academy's 21st Century Learning Academy in Dalton, Georgia, have provided these resources for you to use in your own school.

Students in Whitfield County take on a range of multidisciplinary projects and learn math and physics while building an outdoor classroom.
