A design for learning
Learning through REAL Projects is a design for learning that connects deep subject content with real world problem solving. REAL Projects enable all students to create extraordinary work that matters.
Inspired by approaches pioneered in the US, and developed through a partnership between Innovation Unit and High Tech High in California, REAL Projects are now being used by schools all over England. Between 2013 and 2015 the Education Endowment Foundation funded a randomised controlled trial of the approach to evaluate the impact on literacy outcomes. Results of the trial are due in 2016.
