LA-based EdTech Startup Receives Glowing Review from Leading Education Resource
LOS ANGELES, Calif., (September, 2020) – This month, Project Pals, Inc., a collaborative online project-based learning platform, was named a 2020 Selection for Learning by Common Sense Education. This review comes after a request for testing by Common Sense Education back in June. Common Sense Education is an independent, research-backed nonprofit dedicated to uncovering the latest and greatest EdTech tools for parents and educators.
After months of rigorous testing, Project Pals was awarded an overall rating of four stars by instructional technology facilitator Marianne Rogowski in September. Rogowski, who possesses a masters in Educational Media and Instructional Technology, describes Project Pals as a “unique project-based learning tool” where “students can explore content and demonstrate learning in authentic, empowering ways that require critical thinking, creativity, and collaboration.” Infusing instruction with these essential 21st century skills is key to preparing students for success in an unknown future.
Rogowski also praises Project Pals for placing students in the driver’s seat of their own learning and steering them toward tackling today’s biggest issues, noting “The workspace is set up to get students asking questions, gathering research, sharing media, and writing about the complicated issues we face in our world, putting them in an active learning mode that encourages inquiry and problem-solving.” Students tackle projects on the platform that improve their community and beyond, like designing a local park or exploring climate change.
“As a company that sets its mission to make high quality project-based learning accessible for all students, we are very proud to be named as one of the Common Sense Selections for Learning” says Project Pals CEO and founder Miriam Bogler.
