How to make sure that PBL is applied well in schools

Helpful perspective from Mind/Shift at KQED by Thom Markham, PBL Global. This article responds to some current critiques of PBL, but focuses mostly on the way that educators’ perspectives need to change in order to implement PBL successfully.

This is not a long piece, but has a lot of good ideas.
