Project Based Learning Made Simple

Project based learning can be overwhelming- but it doesn't have to be. It's a critical component to learning that focuses on inquiry, student choice, and personalization while pulling in elements we face in the real world. One of my educational goals has been to create effective PBL activities that allow for complete personalization and differentiation for students and also making them manageable in the classroom (for everyone).

Turning topics and problems into engaging educational experiences is something I've wanted for students, that's why I'm excited to offer these resources to educators and students. These PBL activities are created by combining multiple academic subjects that work together, while allowing students (and teachers) ultimate flexibility. As you continue on, take a closer look at the resources to learn more.

Why is project based learning beneficial?
-Students are actively engaged in the work and solving the problem.
-PBL is cross curricular! It can work for all subjects.
-It allows students to be creative and imaginative
-It's for all types of learners. PBL is not just for talented and gifted students.
-Students have control over what and how they are going to solve an issue/problem.
"Project Based Learning can be transformative for students. By presenting students with a mix of choice and responsibility, cognitive concepts and practical activities, within an environment of real-world authenticity, projects engage students in learning that is deep and long-lasting." -The Buck Institute

Why do teachers use these resources for project based learning?
-Students learn and apply academic content in authentic ways.
-Critical thinking, creativity, and imagination are focal points.
-Students take control of their learning.
-Flexibility and tasks can be differentiated constantly.
-High engagement levels.
