Dr. Byron Ernest, Secretary of the Indiana State Board of Education, speaks at the HEA Student Pathways Showcase in June 2018. He talks about the importance of education and business partnerships that create relevant learning opportunities for students.
National polls of student engagement consistently show student engagement in school drops considerably in the high school years. Students often question the connection between the content they are learning in their high school classes and their future lives and careers.
This is particularly true for students who have not identified a clear pathway after high school or for students that believe they will pursue a local job directly out of high school.
Project-based learning responds to both of these challenges by more fully engaging students in an active learning process and integrating relevant skills and knowledge from local career pathways into the classroom content. Students are more engaged in their learning and are better prepared for whatever pathway they pursue upon graduation.
As part of the local career pathways system, project-based learning helps expose students to multiple career options and prepare students to enter into pathway programs while in high school, such as internships, job shadowing, or certification programs.
