Challenge Based Learning
Challenge Based Learning (CBL) provides an efficient and effective framework for learning while solving real-world challenges. The framework is collaborative and hands-on, asking all participants (students, teachers, families, and community members) to identify big ideas, ask good questions, identify and solve challenges, gain deep subject area knowledge, develop 21st century skills, and share their experience with the world.
Digital Promise offers consulting services to help schools and districts build a CBL environment through professional learning and strategic planning. In a CBL engagement, Digital Promise consultants work with school teams and district leaders to implement the CBL framework in a way that complements the district’s philosophical underpinnings and goals, integrates 21st century skills in instruction, and supports the realization of the full potential of technology in learning.
