The P.S. 147 PTA was successful in raising funds to provide professional development for our teachers in Project Based Learning! Thank you to everyone who supported our GoFundMe.

What is Project Based Learning?
Project based learning is the act of learning through identifying a real-world problem and developing its solution. Students show what they learn as they journey through the unit, not just at the end.  Through this type of active and engaged learning, students obtain a deeper knowledge of the subjects they’re studying.  Projects are academically rigorous and aligned with academic standards.  

The Principal’s Vision for Project Based Learning at P.S. 147
Ms. Sandra Noyola is a 2017 Teachers College Cahn Fellow.  Her project under this fellowship is to support a shift in her teachers pedagogy to more student-centered, project-based learning across all grades.  She has been actively supporting and encouraging this shift for several years, and in fact PBL is already happening in many grades.
