Some Helpful Project-based Learning Resources and Apps for Teachers

Share this post:  
Project-based learning (PBL) is a learning trend centred on the use of hands-on activities and projects (both long-term and short term ones) to engage students in authentic learning situations. Over the last few years we have reviewed a wide variety of digital resources teachers can draw on to effectively integrate the ethos of project-based learning in their classroom instruction.  In today’s post we are sharing with you a handful of some of the best resources we shared so far. We organized these resources into four main categories: iPad apps, Android apps, web tools, and PBL books. Our purpose is to help you develop a grounded understanding of what PBL is all about (through suggested readings) and proceed to its application in your class through the use of the recommended apps and tools. A PDF version of this visual is also available for free download. Check it out and share with us your feedback in our Facebook page.

Links to the featured resources are included in a table under the visual.
