Educators are under more pressure than ever to meet district standards and boost test scores, while still giving each student personalized attention and preparing them for life after K-12. That’s a lot to balance, especially across home, school, and virtual environments. Defined Learning supports educators, students, and administrators through this challenge with easy-to-implement project based learning.
With 360 real-world, personalized PBL projects to choose from, Defined Learning molds real-world scenarios into existing, district-approved curriculums so students feel empowered to make impactful choices with the lessons they are already learning in the classroom and online.

Why Choose Defined Learning?
Every student learns differently and has a distinct perspective to bring to the table.

With little to no boundaries hampering their creativity, students can learn from each other as they collaborate on problem-solving in real time while exploring future career paths.
Defined Learning provides my teachers with everything they need to implement engaging performance tasks in the classroom. The hands-on projects make careers come alive for students because they can apply their classroom knowledge in a real-world setting- Dr. Genevra Walters, Superintendent of Kankakee School District, IL
The collection of performance tasks developed by Defined Learning supports the UbD framework for curriculum, instruction and assessment. Through the utilization of ‘real world’ performance tasks and related resources, teachers engage their students in meaningful learning and authentic assessment – and that is the best preparation for the world outside of school.- Jay McTighe
The Practical can be Inspiring
When students can see the real-world impact of their lessons, it inspires them to seek out knowledge and follow their interests. Education should be a springboard for the future, not an obstacle to overcome. Working together, we can encourage the next generation to rediscover their love of learning.
