Knowledge, Learning, Community

According to this report, "a steering committee of 25 PBL experts and organizations has created a framework called High Quality Project Based Learning, or HQPBL."  The actual framework won't be released until this coming March; in the meantime we have titles like "authenticity", "public project" and "collaboration", among others. It's hard to see how HQPBL differs from project-based learning generally in any way other than marketing. We are told at the bottom of this article that "This post includes mentions of a Getting Smart partner." It reads to me like advertising content and should be more clearly labeled. The blog should tell us who the advertiser is. Authors should remember that such coy and misleading marketing undermines the credibility of the entire website, including all other authors who post on that site.
