Project-Based Learning (PBL) is an instructional methodology that encourages students to learn and apply knowledge and skills through an engaging experience. PBL presents opportunities for deeper learning in-context and for the development of important skills tied to college and career readiness.
Project-based learning activities are interdisciplinary, rigorous, and student-centered. Research on PBL supports an increase in student engagement and achievement, and helps students develop the 21st-century skills they need to succeed in their future careers.
Makerspace is a constructivist and constructionist movement that is taking the world by storm where DIY meets education! The maker movement is about teaching and learning that is focused on student centered inquiry. This is not the project done at the end of a unit of learning, but the actual vehicle and purpose of the learning.
A makerspace presents readily-available materials that can act as a provocation for inquiry, as well as modern technology and items to invent with.
