As a result, students develop deep content knowledge
as well as critical thinking, creativity, and communication
skills in the context
of doing an authentic, meaningful
project. Project Based Learning
unleashes a contagious,
creative energy among students and teachers.
Project-based learning can help students apply
creativity skills, problem solve,
and develop a more in-depth understanding

Characteristics of Project Based Learning
Project based curriculum is designed to engage students
using real-world problems.
This is an
interdisciplinary approach because real-world
challenges are rarely
solved using information or skills
from a single subject area. Projects
to engage in inquiry, solution building, and product
construction to help address the issue or challenge
students do the work, they often use content
knowledge and skills from multiple academic domains
to successfully complete the project.
Project based education requires the
knowledge and skills, not just recall or recognition.
Unlike rote learning to assess a single fact,
PBL assesses how students apply a variety of
academic content in new contexts.
As students engage in a project, they begin with
asking a question. Inquiry leads the
student to think
critically as they are using their academic knowledge
in real-world applications.
The inquiry process leads to the development
solutions to address the identified problem.
They show their knowledge in action through the
creation of products designed to
solutions to an audience.
In PBL, the role of the teacher shifts from content-deliverer
to facilitator/project manager.
work more independently through the
PBL process, with the teacher
providing support only
when needed. Students are encouraged to make their
own decisions about how best to do their work and
The PBL process fosters student independence,
ownership of his/her work, and the development
of 21st century/workplace skills.
Proponents of project-based learning cite numerous
the implementation of its strategies in the
classroom – including a
greater depth of understanding
of concepts, broader knowledge base,
communication and interpersonal/social skills,
enhanced Leadership skills, increased creativity and
improved writing skills.
Another definition of project-based learning includes
a type of instruction, where students work together to
solve real-world problems in their schools and communities.
problem-solving often requires students to
draw on lessons from several disciplines and apply them
in a very practical way. The promise of
seeing a very
real impact becomes the motivation for learning.
