Students working within the Project Based Learning model publish their work in their personally created websites. Each student uses the WIX website building software. This gives the students the opportunity to develop their own digital portfolio. And as important, their work is seen by a global community, not just one teacher. The paradigm shift encourages students to become creative and intensifies their desire to produce quality products. Click on the links below to see their websites.
