Project-Based Learning around the World
Weatherby, Kristen
Learning & Leading with Technology, v34 n5 p12-16 Feb 2007
This paper, the first of a two-part article, addresses ways that project-based learning is being used in countries around the world. It introduces Microsoft's worldwide K-12 education initiative, Partners in Learning, and provides some background as to why Microsoft is interested in developing project-based learning curricula for teachers to help them better integrate technology into learning and teaching. Through Partners in Learning (, Microsoft has joined with the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) to deliver an interdisciplinary project-based learning course and accompanying teacher training. This paper discusses the partnership with ISTE in creating project-based learning curriculum as part of Partners in Learning and explores the use of the curriculum in Denmark, a country that has a long history of integrating technology into education and is a longtime supporter of project-based learning.
