    Wow! Thank you very much for this podcast #61. I found that everything that Geoff Krall was sharing about project-based learning and problem-based learning was confirming all kinds of thoughts that I have been having this year. This has helped me to reconcile between what our school administration has been pushing for, lots of project-based learning in order to line up with the new Curriculum in BC, and everything that I have been reading from Jo Boaler and YouCubed about problem-based learning for deep conceptual understanding. Thank you very much for helping me to confirm my instincts that doing several long math projects is not the most effective way to prepare our students for their future math and science learning in high school. I look forward to reading his blog and to hearing more from other math teachers in this time of change in our teaching.
