One8 Applied Learning Leadership Discovery Program

The Discovery Program will allow school leadership teams to explore strong Applied Learning practices and reflect on opportunities to bring these practices back to their own schools. The program is centered around a set of energizing and thought-provoking school visits. These school visits will be dually focused -- designed to spur new thinking as well as provide immediately implementable strategies to improve your own Applied Learning programs. Leaders should expect to spend three days out of their school buildings over the course of the 2023-24 school year, including one overnight out-of-state school visit.

The One8 Foundation will provide a travel stipend to cover the costs associated with program participation.

Eligibility: Teams from public middle and high schools that have active PBLWorks, OpenSciEd, and/or Project Lead The Way programs in the 2023-2024 school year are eligible to apply. Schools already engaged in the Applied Learning Leadership Institute are not eligible.
