The BIE Blog is a forum for sharing and discussing information, tools, and ideas about Project Based Learning (PBL). Many posts are written by either BIE staff members or BIE National Faculty members. But BIE also welcomes blog posts, suggestions, proposals, and other submissions from external guests, as outlined below.
BIE permits its National Faculty bloggers, bloggers, journalists, or writers to reblog, repost, or republish blog posts found on bie.org after 24 hours from the original publish date as guest blogs on their blog or website with attribution to: (i) the original article; (ii) the author; and (iii) BIE.
Specifically, we ask that you abide by the following guidelines:
BIE permits bloggers to translate its works into additional languages so long as it follows the reblogging policy guidelines above. BIE is not responsible for any mistranslations of the works.
BIE is not responsible for additional content found on blogs or websites that reblog, repost or republish works by BIE. BIE does not endorse blogs, websites, bloggers, journalists, or writers who reblog, repost, or republish works by BIE. BIE does not compensate bloggers, journalists, or writers who reblog, repost, or republish works by BIE.
BIE encourages conversation, feedback and comments. BIE reserves the right to – but is not obliged – to do any or all of the following:
By posting comments on bie.org, you give BIE the irrevocable right to reproduce, distribute, publish, display, edit, modify, create derivative works from, and otherwise use your submission for any purpose in any form on any media. BIE is not responsible and will not be held accountable for comments posted to bie.org.
On the Buck Institute for Education (BIE) Blog, we welcome guest authors to join our forum about Project Based Learning (PBL). However, BIE does not accept guest blogs from authors whose sole purpose is link sharing or promoting a product or service. Our guest blogs are reserved for dedicated education writers, leaders, and advocates.
The blog posts can be about anything that connects to Project Based Learning. You can describe projects you’ve done as a teacher or experienced as a learner or parent/guardian of a student, offering lessons learned and advice. You can explain the benefits of PBL and reflect on what makes it work effectively. You can connect PBL to other programs in schools or the world outside of school. The main point is to tell interesting stories based on your personal experience. See examples at bie.org/blog.
If you’d like to discuss your ideas before writing, please email BIE Editor in Chief John Larmer at firstname.lastname@example.org. Any submission may be edited for content, length, and style. We cannot guarantee that every submission will be posted, but if your first one is not, we welcome you to submit another!
Submitting and Publishing Articles
We accept guest articles on a case-by-case basis unless some other agreement has been established between BIE and the guest author. Please submit a draft of your article that meets the following guidelines for consideration and review:
Upon submission, review and approval, BIE will publish the article to www.bie.org. BIE reserves the right to refuse content and remove links and bios from submitted posts.
BIE does not compensate the authors of guest posts or articles. Compensation is ONLY reserved for our team of BIE National Faculty bloggers, who are also bound by the terms of the applicable Memorandum of Understanding and corresponding Exhibits.
