PBL is an important contemporary instructional approach that enables students to master academic skills and content knowledge, develop skills necessary for future success, and build the personality needed to address challenges of life. A high quality project requires students to think critically about complex problems, questions and issues. In order for the students to complete the project successfully, it is important to learn academic content, concepts and skills. Student are more engaged in the learning process and tend to develop a deeper understanding of the content and skills which are required for life beyond school.
PBL helps develop 21st century skills which students need to succeed and at the same time develops capacity for critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity, also known as the four Cs of the 21st century learning. We use BIE Gold Standard PBL framework in which projects focus on student learning goals and should include essential design elements like knowledge, skills, questions, sustained enquiry, authenticity, student voice and choice, reflection, critique and revision, final product. We choose PBL because it is a kind of transformative for students, it is a mix of responsibility and choice, cognitive concepts and practical aspects within a protective environment but with real world authenticity.
