This vision of education fits into my current belief about education well because it is student centered, conveys practical skills and is something that students can get excited about. I especially think projects are useful when they have real world benefits for students outside of school that they clearly see and are excited about. This is not always possible, however there are some cases where it can be. For example, when I was in high school there was an auto shop class where students worked on their own cars with the new knowledge they learned. It is easy to see how a student would be interested in learning about auto skills when they are driving out of class with improvements to their own vehicle. Ultimately, the path of project based learning is one that deepens knowledge and skills for life, while being less about memorization of facts which will be quickly forgotten.
