Why project-based learning is beneficial for teachers and students

Project-based learning (PBL) is becoming more and more popular in schools worldwide, and is seen as more effective than traditional classroom learning.It is being adopted by schools who are embracing 21st century teaching methods because project-based learning helps develop skills in children that are useful for their futures, including critical thinking, problem-solving, project management and collaborative thinking.Instead of traditional classroom learning such as memorisation and standardised testing, educators argue that project-based learning in schools is more aligned with the “real world”, helping students prepare for a future rife with new technologies. Plus, PBL helps students gain self-confidence as they’re typically required to use their voices and express themselves while working on a project. It’s also a rewarding experience for them as they feel a sense of accomplishment when they finish a project. Besides these benefits, PBL also keeps students engaged as they are not forced to sit still, but encouraged to be active and communicate among their peers as they work on a particular project.
