Project-Based Learning Activities

Project-based learning is an approach to teaching where students explore challenges and problems that are real-world while engaging in collaborative groups and developing cross-curricular skills (Edutopia, 2009). According to Jonassen, Howland, Marra, & Crismond, meaningful learning occurs when a student is willfully engaged in activities that are active, constructive, intentional, authentic, and cooperative (2008, 2). Project-based learning is an instructional environment that is filled with active and engaged learning where students construct deeper knowledge of whatever content they are studying, and because of this deeper knowledge construction, students tend to retain the learning longer (Edutopia, 2009).
