Project-Based Learning

What is PBL?

Project-based learning is a dynamic approach to teaching in which  students explore real-world problems and challenges. 

With this type of  active and engaged learning, students are inspired to obtain a deeper  knowledge of the subjects they're studying. 1

What's the History of PBL?

 Confucius and Aristotle were early proponents of learning by doing.  Socrates modeled how to learn through questioning, inquiry, and critical  thinking -- all strategies that remain very relevant in today's PBL  classrooms.1

What Experts Are Saying...

 "Inquiry-driven & project-based learning makes sense for today's  learners because it gives them the opportunity to connect the work they  do in school with the larger world around them. 

We must stop saying that school is "preparation for real life" & acknowledge that school is  real life for the kids while they are in it. Project-based learning  allows that to happen in powerful, meaningful ways."
