Many of today’s companies consider team collaboration to be essential to their day-to-day operations. That’s why Stride Career Prep students benefit from virtual project-based learning (PBL) projects that provide opportunities to work on industry-relevant projects with classmates and industry advisors.
With PBL, students solve realistic problems similar to those they're likely to face after graduation. Teachers aren’t merely lecturers, but coaches and facilitators of students who control their own learning experience through these collaborative teams. The old education platform of grading curves and high-stakes tests is replaced with collaboration—much like the teamwork found in today’s workforce.
In this process, they not only learn the essential skills of teamwork and collaboration, but also critical problem-solving, creativity, and leadership communication styles vital to success in life and careers.
In this video, Stride Career Prep President Shaun McAlmont highlights the value of project-based learning in a virtual class setting.
