I was involved in a brief conversation on Twitter today about something else, but it led to this thought which I wanted to record here.
PBL is not the goal. (Problem-Based or Passion-Based Learning, depending on your take.) Now, don't get me wrong, I think Problem/Passion-Based Learning is mostly a good thing, and something I think we should do more of, but it's not the goal. It's the means.
L is the goal.
We would do well to remember that.
