Project Based Learning

 
 
Vista promotes a student-centered collaborative learning environment through students "learning by doing," which are the core elements of project-based learning.  Project-based learning helps makes learning meaningful and come alive and is defined by 5 key pillars:
 
  • Real-World Connection
  • Core to Learning, meaning that projects are integrated into the heart of the unit, rather than at the end of a unit to reinforce the learning
  • Structured Collaboration
  • Student Driven
  • Multifaceted Assessments so students demonstrate their learning in multiple ways. 
 
Through Project-Based Learning, students gain greater confidence and ownership in their learning, as they see stronger applications to what they are learning and why it is important.
