Project-based learning or “PBL” for short is a form of student- centric form of pedagogy that involves a dynamic teaching approach which aims towards providing students with a deeper knowledge through practical exploration of real world challenges and problems. In other words, PBL connects students and schools with communities and the real world.
PBL has been proven to improve student motivation and achievement. It also helps students master skills that are essential for future growth. Here at Baba, we implement PBS into our curriculum to its fullest effect.
Some of the benefits that Project-based learning has on students as well as the school are:
- Makes school more engaging for students – PBS seeks to actively engage students in the education process.
- PBL provides opportunities for students to use technology – Technology is now an irreplaceable part of modern learning. PBL provides both students and teachers with an opportunity to make use of this tool to find solutions to problems.
- Makes teaching more enjoyable and rewarding – Projects provided teachers with an opportunity to work more closely with active and engaged students to carry out qualitative and meaningful work which in turn helps them rediscover the joy of learning alongside their students.
- It connects students and schools with communities and the real world – PBS allows students to work more closely around the issues that are important to them, their communities and the general world. This allows for students to interact with adults and bring changes to their communities.
