15 Tools For Better Project-Based Learning

15 Tools For Better Project-Based Learning | Links for Units of Inquiry in PYP | Scoop.it

Project-Based Learning is a 21st century approach to learning that acts both as a curriculum and instruction tool, as well as a new way for students to think about school. Rather than strictly academic lessons and units, real-world problems can be solved, and students gain experience with long-term management of the learning process, and the possibility of self-direction.

Project-Based Learning allows naturally embedding of “school” in authentic environments whether those are digital or physical. It is a way of learning that is as much about the process as the project, allowing for the seamless integration of technology, and the inclusion of digital and social media to solve relevant personal and social challenges.

A Simple Project-Based Learning Process

The following apps and digital tools are built around a vastly over-simplified-but-you’ll-still-get-the-picture 4-step process"
