PROJECT BASED LEARNING (PBL). Making Real-Based Teaching A Success In Your Class

Project Based Learning (PBL) is a student-centered model of teaching and learning around projects.

Projects are complex tasks, based on challenging questions or problems, which involve learners collaboratively, over fairly long periods of time, in planning, problem solving, decision making or research activities.  Through projects, pupils acquire autonomy and responsibility, develop skills and apply knowledge, learning in a meaningful way.

Pedagogical references: constructivism and social constructivism

Teachers who make Project Based Learning a regular part of their teaching enjoy their new role, although for some it might take time to adjust from traditional practice. It’s fun to get creative when designing a project, instead of just using “off the shelf” curriculum materials. Most teachers like working collaboratively with their colleagues when planning and implementing projects, and interacting with other adults from the community or the wider world. And PBL teachers find it rewarding to work closely alongside students, tackling a real-world challenge or exploring a meaningful question.

PBL is a dynamic classroom approach in which students actively explore real world problems and challenges and acquire a deeper knowledge. 

PBL is often called Problem Based Learning. 

Teachers and students work together to start and finish a project. Students work collaboratively with one another to share ideas, build understanding and complete projects. Teachers discuss, share best practices and look for inspiration from other teachers. Students and teachers work with outside stakeholders to make learning relevant and authentic. Learning comes alive. 

Our approach in training PBL starts from the fact that our team is composed of project designers and project managers. We are used to planning projects starting from problems and we know techniques to design long term projects.

  • Discover the benefits of teaching using PBL approaches
  • Share with other colleagues the possibilities and effectiveness of PBL in the whole school system
  • Explore different tools and methods of PBL classes and transversal activities
  • Experience with colleagues of different nationalities lesson plans and possible developments of PBL to be transferred in the specific school of provenience
