What is Project Based Learning?

In project-based learning, studnets work in groups to solve challenging problems that are authentic, curriculum-based, and often interdisciplinary. Learners decide how to approach a problem and what activities to pursue. They gather information from a variety of sources and synthesize, analyze, and derive knowledge form it. Their learning is inherently valuable becuase it's connected to somehting real and involves adult skills such as collaboration and reflection. AT the end, students demonstrate their newly acquired knowledge and are judges by how much they've learned and how well they communicate it. Throughout this process, the teacher's role is to guide and advise, rather than to direct and manage, student work.
