Harvard Project Zero Comes to Martin Institute

More than 700 educators from 24 states and six countries are in Memphis for Harvard University’s Project Zero conference at Presbyterian Day School.

The conference runs through Saturday.

The conference was held last in London. Harvard selected Memphis based on the level of education reform happening here and its relationship with the Martin Institute.

Harvard Research Group Brings Conference to PDS

Homepage News Jamie Baker Tuesday, February 11, 2014 12:12 AM

On February 13–15 at Presbyterian Day School, educators from all over the world will engage in hundreds of conversations about how students learn and how to design learning experiences that help students thrive.

Never before have we seen a school (PDS) that has so pervasively, deeply and consistently embraced and implemented Project Zero’s research, ideas and practices in their classrooms

Presbyterian Day School and the Martin Institute for Teaching Excellence are hosting this 2.5 day conference featuring the work of Harvard Graduate School of Education’s Project Zero, a long-term research study group at Harvard. Project Zero’s work is devoted to understanding and quantifying the learning process in order to spread teaching practices that foster critical thinking and engaged learning for students.


Congratulations to PDS Alums that have signed National Letters of Intent to play at the college level.
