Project Based Learning
Project Based Learning (PBL) is one of the most effective learning methodologies to prepare our children for the 21st Century. It will be the primary teaching methodology at our School. The following are the essential design elements of PBL:
In-depth understanding of content and development of critical skills and values.
A challenging real-life problem to solve, or a question to answer.
Students engage in a rigorous process of asking questions, finding resources, applying information.
The project features real-world context, tasks and tools, and quality standards.
Student Voice & Choice
Students make some decisions about the project, including how they work and what they create.
Critique & Revision
Students give, receive, and use feedback to improve the process and products.
Students make their project work public by presenting it to an authentic audience - people beyond the classroom.
On completion of project, students and teachers reflect on what they learnt, effectiveness of their inquiry and quality of student work.
