World Ready Citizens | Mikela Tarlow & Stone Creek Charter Students | TEDxVail

What would you attempt if you knew you could not fail? Mikela Tarlow, TEDxVail 2013, updates us on a 2 year journey with students at Stone Creek Charter School. Project based learning takes these students beyond their typical classroom studies; allowing them to find their own creative voice and discover paths for taking action in the world. Supported by a web based platform, these students design, manage and share their creative solutions. Empowered, engaged, and enthusiastic, they offer a brief tale of what’s possible through PBL (project based learning).

Mikela Tarlow, founder of Actionlab360, an online project based learning platform, interviews three Stone Creek Middle School students on their transformational educational experiences. Troy, Connor, and Nicole come to life when sharing how PBL (project based learning) takes their interest in learning up a notch.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
