Structuring student-centered inquiry across disciplines
A proven approach to the problem-solving process
Based on cognitive research, the Project Pals methodology focuses on the three most powerful contributors to improved student understanding: external problem representation, computational thinking, and design thinking. Our methodology helps structure students' approach to problem solving across subjects and provides an effective framework guide for project-based learning.
Driving questions focus student inquiries, and question maps allow students to refine questions into an organized, visual representation.
Upload documents, import Google docs, and attach online articles to a project or assignment for student reference.
Easy-to-use content tools empower students to create project assets in the interactive workspace, thus demonstrating their knowledge and thought process.
Components & Events
Students learn to break problems down into component parts and document processes and timelines of events—an integral part of computational thinking.
Building a mind map enables students to identify patterns and relationships between project assets.
Analyze & Conclude
Students drag-and-drop project assets to compare and contrast information, create a structured analysis, and reach reasoned conclusions.
Students design digital posters or slide decks, choosing relevant information for their audience, and by presenting it, hone essential communication skills.
