Project-Based Learning: What is it?

Project-Based Learning: What is it? | Inquiry Learning in Elementary School Learning Commons | Scoop.it

Project-based learning (PBL) is a method used to cultivate learning and teach students 21st century skills. The idea is “built upon authentic learning activities that engage student interest and motivation,” and “generally reflect the types of learning and work people do in everyday world outside the classroom”

I like the graph that displays the difference between a typical classroom project and  project-based learning. Also, some useful weblinks to other resources in the topic.

This is done in my son's school and depending on who set the project it can work really well. If though the teacher has not worked with the school librarian it doesn't work quite as well.

Differentiates between 'class projects' and 'project-based learning.'

It is amazing how technology has changed the whole world giving rise to new forms of education we never thought of.
