What exactly is project-based learning?

Project-based learning is a popular educational approach, whereby students build sequential knowledge and skills by working on aparticular project over an extended period. The most effective projects provide children with the opportunity to explore and solve real-world problems.

Why is project-based learning important?

Project-based learning encourages students to be critical and creative thinkers as they learn how to problem solve real life situations. Students are immediately engaged in PBL as they connect to real life situations and therefore, the learning is relevant.

How does project-based learning differentiate?

Educators love project-based learning because it is differentiation at its best! All students in one class can work at their own individual abilities and not feel excluded. PBL is inclusive and purposeful learning that caters for each student. Children delve deep into a topic and can add as much detail as they can!

How to set up project based learning?

Setting up project-based learning for students to work on quietly for a week does require thoughtful planning, however it is definitely worthwhile as once the work is set, children are deeply engaged in learning over days!
