What Is It?

As you can see from the links below, there are many similar terms that are used to describe very similar student experiences. Some educators describe project based learning, others use a technique called problem based learning. Across the Atlantic, they use enquiry based learning. Project based learning at the primary and secondary level can be different than what is practiced at the college level. Although these individuals might argue that each of these terms is different, I don’t care to engage in this debate. Instead, I’d rather cherry pick what I think is useful in developing meaningful student experiences and assessing student performance. I’ll leave it to you to examine the web sites and develop your own idea of project-problem-inquiry based learning.
