Project-Based Learning is a unique venture project involving uncertainties which are to be managed during execution. This project is capable to cater to the challenges of preparing students to solve the real-world problems rather than an essay or exam-based traditional classroom setting.
In Project-Based Learning, teachers make studying come alive for students. Students work on a project over an extended time – from a week up to a semester – that engages them in solving a real-world problem or answering complex questions. They demonstrate their knowledge and skills by creating a public product or presentation for a real audience.
As a result, students develop in-depth content knowledge as well as critical thinking, collaboration, creativity, and communication skills. Project-Based Learning unleashes contagious, creative energy among students and teachers.
Project-Based Learning typically is grounded by the following elements:
- Real-world scenarios
- Blended writing genres
- Multiple reading genres
- Authentic assessments
- Authentic audiences
- Real-world expertise brought into the classroom
- Units that assess multiple skills
- Units that require research and comprehension of multiple subjects
- Student choice
- Multiple methods of communication (writing, oral speaking, visual presentations, publishing, etc.)
These skills will help shape our students to become better leaders and thinkers in the future.
