Problem/Project-based learning

PBL

The PBL is a methodology for the acquisition of knowledge and competencies through the development of projects that provide answers to real-life problems and/or challenges. Thus, the aim of this methodology is to provide the children with a series of strategies and tools to solve problems. PBL believes that this is what will really make them competent, since it is more practical and interactive than memorizing information that they can easily find on the Internet.

Thus, some of the virtues of Project Based Learning are:

  1. Students develop their autonomy and responsibility, as they are in charge of their own learning.
  2. In order to solve a given question, several very important tasks such as planning, work structuring and product development are worked out
  3. The skills of the different students are developed to make them more competent in these skills and to make them realize their own potential.
  4. Children learn to think and work in a creative and innovative way, developing competencies such as teamwork, decision making, information search, etc.
  5. Children are made aware of their thoughts and their capacity for imagination and generation of ideas.
