I just returned from a very productive and inspiring week in Puerto Rico where I visited two schools where both MI and MIDAS are key elements in their educational programs. The first was Colegio Evangelico Capitan Correa K- 12 school in Arecibo. For several years they have been giving 9th grade students the MIDAS at the same time introducing project-based learning activities into various subjects. They were afraid that such activities would negatively affect their academic test scores but instead the opposite happened – test scores increased! As did student motivation and enthusiasm.
