We believe that modern life presents a deluge of problems that demand solutions. We face problems, big and small, simple and complex, clear and confusing, every day in our lives. That is why learning to solve problems is the most essential skill students can learn in any setting and the types of projects that students should be engaged in are those that solve a problem they or their community are struggling with, preparing them to assume their life roles with confidence.
To achieve this goal, our program strives to educate teachers about project-based learning (PBL), help students develop skills they can use in any problem-solving situation, and provide a robust support system that consists of PBL examples around the world, PBL tutorials and articles, PBL lesson plans and PBL consulting services.
Making PBL easy and effective since 2015
We’re constantly refining our pedagogy and technology to prepare students for a lifetime of success—however they define it.
Driven by a passion for improving education
Miriam Bogler taught as a computer teacher and tech coordinator at several Southern California public and private schools before earning her master’s degree in educational technology leadership from George Washington University.
But after three decades in the classroom, she saw an opportunity that could truly improve achievement and prepare students for a successful future—no matter their chosen path. Channeling her passion for education, technology, and cognitive science, Miriam designed the Project Pals platform.
What drives her is a passion for improving education and preparing young learners for today’s complex jobs in a global economy. Through unwavering persistence—and a little luck—Miriam is turning her dreams into a reality, as early adopters provide extremely positive feedback validating her vision and product-market fit.
Our Core Values
Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself, John Dewey
In homes, businesses, organizations, and societies in every culture, learning is driven by problems that need solving.
The goal of education should be to train students to become capable active participants in daily life.
We believe in active experiences that prepare students for ongoing learning about a dynamic world.
Learning to solve problems is the most essential skill students can learn in any setting.
The types of projects that students should be engaged in are those that solve a problem they or their community are struggling with, preparing them to assume their life roles with confidence.
