Project Based Learning

“When you allow students to envision their own learning and create a style that really 
works for them, what you are doing is creating lifelong learners”


‘Project based learning’ is a method supporting constructivism to inspire students to ‘think, 
connect, create and share’. Project learning makes an attempt to connect knowledge and skills 
with personal experience in collaborative manner resulting in life skill learning. Project learning 
bridges the gap between learning core knowledge and applied skills - the gap between ‘knowing’
and ‘doing’. This offers the students to become critical thinkers, problem solvers, and effective communicators. 

Effective project learning is open-ended and deals with curriculum based problems, issues,
and challenges. The learning paths are unpredictable, but the result is often a more 
in-depth of understanding of the content leading to 21st century thinking and learning.
