Students engage in real-world projects to encourage engagement and learning as defined by the factors for real-world project success. Projects can be conducted individually, in small groups, or in whole-group instruction.
Learning from real-world experiences is a powerful way to develop skills, understandings, and mindsets that prepare students for success in learning, for jobs and careers, and for active civic engagement; service learning, real-world research, internships and apprenticeships, and entrepreneurship projects are all examples of learning experiences that develop real-world learning competencies.
