Project-based learning is a process in which students build a model of a real-world topic they have been investigating. The topics students choose has relevance to students’ interests, motivating them to create their own projects and delve into the underlying concepts that the project necessitates. This type of learning improves student achievement because learning is in context and it is an integral part of the topic the students explore and build a model for.
The projects listed in this website can be all categorized as project-based learning. However, I decided to include only two in this section. I chose these as samples for project based learning because the first one—the GATE project—is a document providing specifications for creating a project, and the second—The School of Athens—is an example for an interdisciplinary project. Both can be good examples for people interested in trying a project-based learning experience.
