Sierra Leone Rising

After attending Jennifer Klein's workshop on Project Based Learning in Bumpe, Sierra Leone - West Africa in 2014, I have come to learn that teaching should be a way that encourages students to explore solutions on their own. It is now clear to me that Project Based Learning brings opportunities for our communities to experience various kinds of innovations that solves community challenges from youngsters. It is an honor that she has empowered us to train the next generation of leaders and fostered global citizenship. 

Before the intervention of Jennifer Klein's Principled Learning Strategies, students were taught to memorize facts and re-write the same facts during exams. Their liberties in finding solutions to class given problems were directed solely by teachers. Now, students are given the opportunity to explore on their own which brings unique experiences outside the classroom.  

I feel hopeful. It has maximized my hope for a brighter future where students are prepared for the present and the future.
