Webinar: Closing the Opportunity Gap Through Career-Connected PBL

Connecting what students are learning to careers through hands-on career experiences not only deepens students' understanding but also helps them make more informed choices about their future. Early exposure to career options is also a critical strategy for closing economic gaps and putting students on a path to a promising future.

In this complimentary webinar, you'll get research on career exploration in K-12 and how it impacts lifelong success and you'll learn how Broken Arrow Public Schools in Oklahoma is implementing career-connected PBL to drive academic transformation in 6th-12th.

You'll walk away with a replicable roadmap including turnkey tools, strategies, and ideas to bring back to your school/district to advance college and career readiness success.
