The Project Based Learning Environment (PBL)
Project Based Learning (PBL) is at the core of our innovative teaching practices. It is a hands-on approach to learning that allows the students to be part of the process.
It incorporates technology and STEAM concepts! What is STEAM?
Science Technology Engineering Arts Math
The learning evironment that MLHS provides is innovative and consistent with the way technology is advancing in real time. When it comes to technology, the overall goal is to have the technology support learning, not drive instruction.This allows our students to:
- Use real-world tools to do real-world work
- Focus on developing skill sets that society demands
- Respond to their developing interests
- Develop agency (ownership of their own learning )
- Focus on ways to function in an environment that is more reflective of the current digital world
How do we achieve this?
MLHS students have available to them a variety of means for incorporating STEAM into their education, including ...
- Maker Space: a place which allows them to follow their creativity and "make" or "be" creative. This means they can build, invent, compose, create ... the sky is the limit!
- 1:1 computers and 3D printers: these allow our students to learn by doing
- Robotics Initiatives: MLHS students can and have worked with designing, repurposing, programming, and 3D printing parts and pieces for their robot. Their goal is to use WiFi and Bluetooth technology to allow homebound students to access and operate the robot.
A Firm Foundation of Christian Beliefs
Where would be without the love and guidance of Jesus Christ? No matter where we go or what we do, we can't acheive our highest potential without our Christian faith.
MLHS is the perfect balance between traditonal Christian Faith and modern education in the 21st Century.
Imagine a world led by innovative builders and scholars who understand the world of technology and foward thinking but have the basis for leading a moral, ethical, and service-oriented life.
Doesn't that sound like exactly what our world needs?
This is what we are doing at Martin Luther High School.
