Interesting video on project based learning and redesigning the delivery model. Because as long as a school has staff for each of the different disciplines, you can't have small schools without very small student-teacher ratios. Project-based learning is depicted here as a way of maintaining a higher student-teacher ratio in smaller schools - four teachers, for example, in a school of 60 students. But are they educationally sound? The argument is made that "they do more to actually meet their mission" in a project-based environment. Here's more from the 'What's Beccme Clear blog. Wes Fryer's post has the UStream plus a good set of notes.
