The first African to attend the PBL World Workshop is from LEAP


Kelebogile Nthutang, a teacher at LEAP 5 in Jane Furse, is the first person from Africa to attend the Buck Institute for Education‘s Project Based Learning workshop, PBL World, in Napa, California.

This is what Kelebogile said about her experience: “I feel so humbled to be chosen to attend this conference and it feels so normal to be around other project enthusiasts. The workshops are very informative and have got me so geared up and I can’t wait to come back and share. A lot of things now make sense and I can see it working well – not only in the classroom but also in the communities that we serve and it is inclusive of any school, irrespective of its conditions! I’ve discovered that there’s a lot that other teachers are doing which is similar to what I have been doing in my classes.

PBL rocks and moves the teacher to the center to ignite innovation.”

Thank you Teach With Africa and Buck Institute for making this opportunity possible.
