WHAT IS PBI GLOBAL?
Project-Based Inquiry (PBI) Global is a collaborative, inquiry-based instructional strategy that connects students
internationally through interdisciplinary inquiry projects that require students to ask compelling questions, gather & analyze sources, creatively synthesize claims & evidences, critically evaluate & revise, and share, publish & act.

About the New Literacies Collaborate (NLC)
The NLC is comprised of a multidisciplinary team of researchers and educators who promote research, teacher professional development, and global connections with new literacies. New literacies emerge from the theoretical and practical intersection of literacy, evolving technologies, and media. Research areas include: game-based learning, online comprehension and navigation, social networking, video, and online teaching and learning. We explore how these areas are changing student learning and teacher education in the 21st century.
