The article highlights eight tips from teachers who are already transforming classroom practices through project-based learning activities. A certain edsurgent design-thinker is really excited by Tip #4: Build Empathy. We imagine Mr. Ferriter would be excited about Tip #6: Amplify Worthy Ideas and Tip #8: Encourage Breakthroughs (see Motivation Optional) when you consider all the ways to share, tweet, pin, remix, and crowdfund ideas.
