Florida Virtual Schools PBL Online (2012)

Florida Virtual Schools (FLVS) has recognized the effectiveness of Project-Based Learning (PBL), and has been working to incorporate this transformative teaching strategy in its online courses. PBL has become increasingly popular in education as more classrooms K-12 incorporate it with their course material, similarly online learning as also assumed an increasing role in K-12 content delivery. FLVS commissioned Hezel Associates to develop a white paper to explore how PBL is implemented in virtual classrooms K-12.

Hezel Associated used interviews as the principle information source. We conducted semi-structured interviewed with four individuals, each with national reputation relating to the theory and practice of both project-based and online learning. Five more interviews were conducted with individuals consisting of teachers, curriculum specialists, and curriculum designers, all with first-hand knowledge and experience with online PBL at FLVA. FLVS was able to use the information provided in this white paper to highlight the successes and identify needed improvements for this trailblazing program.
