Because I work a lot in the domain of Project-Based Learning (PBL), I participate in a number of conversations and ideations about great, future PBL ideas. I never cease to be amazed, though, at how quickly many adults see the PBL-design process as adult-centric. We neaten the mess of education-industry learning too much, and we too often exclude systemic inclusion of students in these early design stages. What if we expected and empowered students to co-design curriculum?
