Project based learning is a powerful way to allow students opportunities to learn, build and use a variety of skills in authentic contexts. Schools and educators are doing incredible things for learners by opening the world up to them and providing opportunities to address global issues in deep and meaningful ways. Project based learning can also happen on a smaller and more personalising scale. Projects that allow students to explore who they are and what matters to them can be profound. Whether the inquiry is a global one or one about the world of an individual, project based learning gives students a meaningful platform from which to leap into learning.
