warning: strtotime(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected the timezone 'UTC' for now, but please set date.timezone to select your timezone. in /home1/archime1/public_html/drupal/modules/agenda/agenda.module on line 80.

Students learn best when they are engaged in demanding project-based curricula that activate their prior knowledge base. To learn, students must be challenged with a variety of rigorous tasks that require them to do more than memorize new sets of facts. Project based and “hands on” learning experiences, grounds new material into a real world context thereby providing a familiar backdrop for new materials. Our lead partner Vision Ed Inc. is a leader in technology assisted project-based learning. Vision Ed Inc.’s approach emphasizes a hands-on problem solving and project-based approach to learning that challenges students to think creatively, apply concepts and actively construct meaning. Founded in the belief that children learn in unique and complex ways, this approach offers students an opportunity to conduct their own research and experiments in the pursuit of knowledge. Archimedes’ partnership with Vision Ed Inc. will help students incorporate new conceptual schema into their existing knowledge base, as teachers trained in this approach encourage true learning and knowledge retention.
