Student Voice: Experiencing Deeper Learning Through PBL

Although high school student Rahil had some academic struggles after immigrating from Fiji just a few years ago, he found opportunity and purpose in the project-based curriculum at Impact Academy.

January 21, 2013

Rahil's school, the Impact Academy of Arts and Technology, is part of the Envision Education group of charter schools. Envision Education has a grant from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation to pursue a strategy called deeper learning, which encourages 21st-century skills. You may find resources at the Hewlett Foundation's Deeper Learning landing page. Get practical ideas on encouraging deeper learning in the classroom from our series:
