Why Project BasedLearning (PBL)?
Project Based Learnings time has come. The experience of thousands of teachers across all
grade levels and subject areas, backed by research, confirms that PBL is an effective and
enjoyable way to learn. Why are so many educators across the United States and around the
world interested in this teaching method? The answer is a combination of timeless reasons and
recent developments.
Todays students, more than ever, often find school to be boring and meaningless. In
PBL, students are active, not passive; a project engages their hearts and minds, and
provides real-world relevance for learning.
After completing a project, students remember what they learn and retain it longer than is
often the case with traditional instruction. Because of this, students who gain content
knowledge with PBL are better able to apply what they know and can do to new
situations.
In the 21st century workplace, success requires more than basic knowledge and skills. In
PBL, students not only understand content more deeply but also learn how to take
responsibility and build confidence, solve problems, work collaboratively, communicate
ideas, and be creative innovators.
The Common Core and other present-day standards emphasize real-world application of
knowledge and skills, and the development of the 21st century competencies such as
critical thinking, communication in a variety of media, and collaboration. PBL provides
an effective way to address such standards.
Modern technology which students use so much in their lives is a perfect fit with
PBL. With technology, teachers and students can connect with experts, partners, and
audiences around the world, and use tech tools to find resources and information, create
products, and collaborate more effectively.
PBL allows teachers to work more closely with active, engaged students doing high-
quality, meaningful work, and in many cases to rediscover the joy of learning alongside
their students.
Current models of PBL are not like some past examples of doing projects in which
student learning outcomes were not clear. More rigorous and effective models of PBL,
such as BIEs, have been refined and tested in recent years in a variety of settings,
subjects, and grade levels.
