Project Based Learning and Collaboration
High student engagement and achievement with
project based learning is dependent on successful
student collaboration. 'It is important that we
acknowledge that students may not have the
skills, maturity or confidence to work through
these challenging situations without some
support.' (Ralston, 2016)
Below please find a list of instructional videos
and articles. Great resources for teachers
interested in starting their journey into Project
Based Learning and Collaboration.
What is Project Based Learning?
The Buck Institute for Education's definition of PBL
Collaboration is an integral part of all Project Based
Learning. It also builds a strong classroom community.
Collaboration is a life skill our students will need
to be successful throughout their education and into their
future. 'In preparing our students for college and careers,
21st Century skills call on us to develop highly collaborative
citizens.' Alber, 2012
