Project-Based Learning @ 42

August 3, 2018 – by Stacey Faucett

At 42, Project-Based Learning is basically a hands-on way to explore your passions, develop skills, and change the world. Instead of classes or courses, we have a connected galaxy of projects that last anywhere from 2 days to 6 months. Some projects are worked on individually and others are done in groups with peers. Each project is a challenge with a brief description of objectives and skills students will learn throughout the process.

Peer-Correction: An Essential Part of the Learning Process

July 17, 2018 – by Stacey Faucett

Peer correction is a pedagogical technique where students correct each other. At 42 there are no teachers, classes, courses or grades so peer-correction is an essential part of our peer-learning curriculum.  At 42, students are the ones in charge of their own success and that of their classmates. Giving corrections is an important part of the process when it comes to working on projects, they must rely on the feedback that they receive about their work in order to progress. By giving and receiving information and by alternating between training and learning, 42 students adapt and progress rapidly.
