PROJECT BASED LEARNING

 

Project-based learning is an instructional approach designed to give students the opportunity to develop knowledge and skills through engaging projects set around challenges and problems they may face in the real world.

 

Project-based learning, or PBL, is more than just projects. As the Buck Institute for Education (BIE) explains, with PBL students "investigate and respond to an authentic, engaging, and complex problem, or challenge" with deep and sustained attention. 

PBL can vary from one school to another, and even from one project to another. Its defining characteristics, however, remain constant.

The PBL model:

  • Is organized around an open-ended driving question or challenge
  • Integrates essential abstract academic content and skills into the project development
  • Requires inquiry to learn or create something new
  • Requires critical thinking, problem-solving, collaboration, and communication (a group often called "21st-century skills") 
  • Allows student voice and choice
  • Incorporates feedback and revision
  • Results in a presentation of the problem definition, process, and final project
