Making Learning Visible: Union Square Students Showcase Their Final Projects
What does a learner-centric education look like? At AltSchool, project-based learning is key for encouraging students to explore their interests and exercise agency over their educational experiences. In learning exhibitions that take place throughout the school year, students present what they’ve learned as a result of a project-based learning arc to their school communities. Demonstrating their learning challenges students to think critically about their process, evaluate their progress, and—above all—take ownership in their learning as they share it with families, educators, and friends.
In this video, hear from AltSchool middle school students as they describe their different approaches to project-based learning and what final artifacts they each produced to demonstrate their learning to their school communities in our most recent learning exhibition.
This video was produced by AltSchool Union Square students and first-time filmmakers, trained by the AltSchool Union Square student storytelling team. Learn more about our pilot Student Storytelling program.
