What is Project-Based Learning (PBL)?

Project-based learning (PBL) 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.

It is an effective way to teach, it is learning that results in demonstrations of performance. Real tasks that have brought challenges to students to solve.

In simple words hands-on student directed activity in which students create something in order to demonstrate what they have learnt whether it is a website, play, animation, podcast, video or anything else.

It involves in-depth investigations of subject matter which are often guided by professional experts who enrich and supplement the teacher's knowledge. In Project-based learning, the students are able to use the knowledge they get right there and then and are able to learn from their own experiences.

Research shows that most students love hands-on projects and also indicates that students are more likely to retain the knowledge gained through this approach far more readily than through traditional textbook-centered learning.

Project-based Learning is also an effective way to integrate technology into the curriculum. A typical project can easily accommodate computers and the Internet, as well as interactive whiteboards, global-positioning-system (GPS) devices, digital still cameras, video cameras, and associated editing equipment.
