Learning Areas

General Description

Project-Based Learning (PBL) is an emulation of post-school activity in which they would address a ‘driving question’. The elements are similar to those of the scientific method and the Hero’s Journey. The NSW Department of Education encourages PBL, offering frameworks, templates and examples to help teachers devise their own PBL. It is attractive as it is interdisciplinary (cross-curricula), hands-on, real-world, and democratic. It encourages use of technology as they would do in a real-life setting. There are opportunities for connection with schools and communities nationally and even globally. This course emphasizes PBL construction that focuses on the intended skills and knowledge while minimizing extraneous demands.
