Learning by doing

Mirroring the real world

Project-Based Learning (PBL) or Problem-Based Learning makes school mirror the real world more than it ever has before. It does this by having students learn information and skills within a specific context rather than traditional memorization techniques. By engaging in projects with real-world applications, students are able to think critically and build knowledge along with skills that will stay with them into adulthood. PBL does this by posing a problem or essential question to students and asking them to find a solution. Finding that solution demands investigation, curiosity, creativity, flexibility, hands-on problem solving, and more.
