Project-based learning is a dynamic approach that helps students retain concepts using real-world relevance and learn more effectively. By working on group projects provided in their coursework, students can hone their communication, learn how to collaborate and develop problem-solving skills—the kinds of abilities employers want and need in the workplace.

GradPoint’s powerful course customization capabilities provide for project-based learning. Wikis, Blogs, and discussion boards can be added to courses, allowing students to collaborate on course topics with peers and their teachers. Teachers can add their own projects to courses, and add groups to courses where each group can see their project, along with instructions, guidelines, and rubrics. GradPoint course work will thus be a central area where project information is centrally accessible, and project scores can be included in the final grade. GradPoint sites can be integrated to Google Drive where students can collaborate on projects in a written area. Submissions and feedback can happen from the Google Drive.
Each lesson is a student-driven, independent project provided online that allows students to go more in depth on a topic. Students will need to execute projects in collaboration with their teacher.
Each project contains one to nine objectives designed to meet the high school math and English Common Core State Standards, International Association for K-12 Online Learning (INACOL) Standards and 21st century skills.
The courses guide both the student and teacher in successfully completing the projects. Students have access to rubrics, worksheets and resource materials. Teachers have access to a teacher’s guide, student samples, and answer keys.
Choice of Activities
Many of the projects provide students with choices of activities to encourage self-directed learning. Students will collaborate with their teacher to determine which choice of activity is most appropriate and determine how the activity will be executed.
