So what really is Project Based Learning (PBL)? Many teachers and educators have heard the term PBL, but for many the term is still hazy….is it creating projects, is it learning through projects, or is it something more?
According to an article on Edutopia, they explained it this way:
PBL is the ongoing act of learning about different subjects simultaneously. This is achieved by guiding students to identify, through research, a real-world problem (local to global) developing its solution using evidence to support the claim, and presenting the solution through a multimedia approach based in a set of 21st-century tools.What The Heck Is Project Based Learning, Edutopia.com
Project Based Learning is more than just doing project in class, it connects students to real life problems and gives them a voice over topics they are passionate about, while utilizing modern tools to do so!
In Project Based Learning, teachers make learning come alive for students.
