Project based learning is “ an instructional approach built upon authentic learning activities that engage student interest and motivation. These activities are designed to answer a question or solve a problem and generally reflect the types of learning and work people do in the everyday world outside the classroom.” taken from PBL Online.

Projects and activities are the keys to a better understanding of PBL. They are no longer tasks that students need to finish after a traditionally-taught unit but rather a set of learning experiences and tasks that guide students in inquiry toward answering a central question, solving a problem, or meeting a challenge. Research has clearly proved that projects that are well-designed and based on students experiences improve students motivation to learn, help them see how school connects to the outside world by making learning relevant and meaningful, and promote greater civic participation and global awareness.There is a section here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning packed full of resources and materials to help you learn more about PBL, check out HERE.

In today's post I am sharing with you an interesting graphic created by Syd to help students and their parents visualize the anatomy of a project at her school. I invite you to have a look and probably repurpose it for your won teaching situation.
