What is PBL (Project-Based Learning)?

PBL is a teaching approach in which students learn via active participation in real-world and personally relevant projects.
Teachers bring learning to life for students through Project Based Learning.

Students work on a project that involves them in fixing a real-world problem or answering a challenging question over a long period of time – from a week to a semester. They exhibit their knowledge and abilities by producing a public product or giving a presentation in front of a live audience.

As a result, students get a strong understanding of the subject matter as well as critical thinking, cooperation, creativity, and communication abilities. Project-based learning instils an infectious sense of creativity in both students and instructors.

Project-based learning is a teaching style in which students develop information and skills by investigating and responding to an authentic, interesting, and complicated issue, problem, or challenge over an extended period of time.

How does PBL differ from “doing a project”?
PBL is becoming increasingly popular in schools and other educational contexts, with a variety of approaches being implemented. However, there are several fundamental differences between “doing a project” and participating in rigorous Project Based Learning.

We find it useful to distinguish between a “dessert projects,” which is a brief, cognitively light project served up after the instructor has covered the substance of a unit in the traditional manner, and a “main course” project, which is the unit itself. The project is the vehicle for imparting the critical information and skills that students need to gain in Project Based Learning. Curriculum and teaching are contained in and framed by the project.

PBL, unlike dessert projects, necessitates critical thinking, problem solving, cooperation, and a variety of means of communication. Students must do much more than memories facts to answer a pressing question and produce high-quality work. They must develop higher-order thinking abilities and learn to collaborate as a group.

10 Advantages Of Project-Based Learning

Check out these 10 advantages of project-based learning and how it may help our children develop life skills that will help them succeed in the future.

 

  1. Collaboration:PBL is heavily reliant on the relationships built through cooperation. Students not only learn how to work better in groups—providing their own contribution, listening to others, and resolving disputes as they arise—but they also form excellent connections with their professors, reinforcing the importance of learning. When students engage on projects, they develop relationships with community people and receive knowledge for their future employment and beyond.
  2. Problem Solving:Students learn how to more successfully address problems that are significant to them, such as real-world community issues—even if they fail and have to start over.
  3. Creativity:Students use their creative thinking abilities to come up with fresh product designs and project ideas.
  4. In-Depth Understanding:Students improve their research abilities and learn more about practical subject than just memorizing information.
  5. Self-Confidence:Students gain agency and purpose as they discover their voice and learn to take pleasure in their work.
  6. Critical Thinking:Students learn to approach challenges with a critical thinking mindset, asking questions and brainstorming solutions for their assignment.
  7. Perseverance:Students learn to manage hurdles more efficiently when working on a project, frequently learning from failure and making revisions until they are happy with their output.
  8. Project Management:Students learn how to better manage projects and tasks.
  9. Curiosity:Students are able to explore their interests, ask questions, and develop a fresh enthusiasm for learning.
  10. Empowerment:Students take responsibility for their work, reflecting on and appreciating their achievements.
