Abstract

Project-based learning (PBL) is increasingly being adopted as an effective approach to learning in primary schools as teachers realise how authentic and challenging learning experiences enable higher levels of engagement and self-directed learning. Supporting learning through a PBL approach in schools requires rethinking a number of aspects which includes the types of experiences students are exposed to, the process of learning and the output of such learning. The role of assessment as well as student feedback and self-assessment are important features of PBL. This approach further draws on the input of 'experts' who support students to explore real-life problems or challenges. Enveloping these experiences is the use of educational technology and how this can enhance the learning process. This chapter explores how PBL can be successfully incorporated into the primary school classroom drawing on existing literature from research undertaken by the authors.
