A practical framework for deeper learning
Employers and colleges look for self-aware candidates who know how to think independently, set their own course, design their own learning, and take responsibility for their own growth.
Project-based learning can be the ideal way to teach these future ready skills. Unfortunately, project-based learning initiatives often fall short because they require painstaking preparation from teachers with no efficient way to personalize the projects or measure learning outcomes.
LiFT® makes implementing project-based learning easier by harnessing the intrinsic motivation of learners as they co-create rigorous projects around their personal interests and goals. With a full set of tools linking emerging interests to instructional design and competency-based grading, LiFT provides a practical framework for deeper learning.
