Projects Vs Project Based Learning: What is the Difference?

By Gavin Hayes

This blog, written by a Australian high school teacher and Ph.D. candidate in authentic assessment, features practical insight into the differences between projects and true project-based learning (PBL). The author asserts that PBL is a process of sustained deep learning and inquiry, yet many educators neglect this process and focus on outcomes.

The blog shares easy to understand infographics (like the two above) that get at the core of PBL, as well as an easy to use framework that any teacher can use to bring meaningful PBL to the classroom. This blog could also help any school leader more fully understand this mode of instruction and assessment and could be used to introduce PBL or assess current efforts at any school.
