What is Project-Based Learning?

When you hear the term project-based learning, what does that mean to you? Are you using this type of student learning in your classroom already? If you are, what are you doing? What type of technology are you integrating in your project?

Let's see what we are doing...


  1. To me, it means creating a real-world experience for students so they learn and "do" at the same time in an environment similar to what they would experience in their everyday life.

  2. Although there are skills and fundamentals that must be learned for any discipline, project-based learning provides superior motivation and answers that ubiquitous question: "When are we ever going to use this in real life?" Project-based learning minimizes the artificial nature of education.
