For the last couple of years, project-based learning (PBL) has significantly changed the learning space. Project-based learning is a new-age systematic learning approach that helps to promote student engagement via profound research of the complex questions. Students are made to work on a project over an extended period of time from a week up to a semester, that engages them in solving a real-world problem or answering a complex question. As a result, students develop deep content knowledge as well as critical thinking, creativity and communication skills in the context of doing an authentic and meaningful project. They demonstrate their knowledge and skills by developing a public product or presentation for a real audience.
The truth is, many in education are recognizing we live in a modern world sustained and advanced through the successful completion of projects.
Beyond basic knowledge, students learn to take initiative and responsibility, solve problems, and communicate ideas. The bottomline is, if we want to prepare students for success in life, we have to bring in a change in the way they are learning. We need to prepare them for a project-based world in order to make them future-ready for taking stern challenges.
