Keith Bailey, PDMSTA

Keith Bailey, Executive Director of the Pee-Dee Math, Science, and Technology Academy in Bishopville, SC was recently the subject of a February 2017 Leader Spotlight by the South Carolina Public Charter School District. In the spotlight Bailey shares some highlights of their initiatives and describes the problem-based learning aspect of the Learner-Active, Technology-Infused Classroom™.

Bailey says “PDMSTA ascribes to a Problem-Based Learning (PBL) model and Learner-Active, Technology-Infused Classrooms (LATIC). Problem-based learning is a subset of project-based learning.  There are differences in the project based and problem-based learning model. Problem-based learning starts with a problem and focuses largely on the process of finding a solution. Students learn through grappling with a problem through open-ended problem-solving”.
