Common Core Integration

Interdisciplinary teamwork is the nature of complex problem solving. Project-Based Learning (PBL) is a real-world lab where students become producers of knowledge by exploring topics in depth, rather than passive consumers.

WeVideo is all about PBL where students collaborate on creating video projects to build multimedia presentations and thereby addressing Common Core standards. Instead of reading history from a textbook, students can be historians as they make a documentary about an historical event. As they engage in building the documentary, they can construct deep knowledge about the topic.
