Students in SmartLabs work through a series project-based learning engagements utilizing a wide variety of applied technologies. SmartLab Facilitators work with students as coaches and mentors rather than through direct instruction.  Facilitators must be expert at differentiated instruction and familiar with the use of constructivist learning techniques.
