Project-based Learning (PBL) is an investigative approach  to teaching and learning. The technique is not an addition to the curriculum.  It is a continuous process that plays a significant role in deepening the learning experience in all curriculum subjects.In this course we will look at the basic concept of what is PBL.


PBL naturally supports critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, and communication. It integrates technology and real-world problem-solving, preparing students with skills essential for the modern world. By implementing PBL, educators can enhance student engagement, skill development, and achievement, aligning with national education priorities and fostering a modern, skills-based approach to learning.
