"Having fun is the best way to learn" 

Ingrid Bauer

PBL stands for "Project Based Learning." This is a progressive learning model based on product-aimed learning carried out by combining various disciplines and supported by appropriate school regularities. This learning process stems from the view that it is important for students to acquire tools that will enable them to process and create knowledge, not just memorize and "regurgitate" it on paper. The learning process emphasizes experience and experimentation, research and deepening understanding, team work alongside independent work, and support of the process by means of continual evaluation by teachers, students, and the general public.

In Project Based Learning, the doing, the imparting and the thinking are intertwined. Each stage has its own targeted product, and all the stages combine to produce the final product. In terms of its essence and implementation, PBL invites many collaborations and a variety of interactions between the school and its physical and human environment.

IDE specializes in embedding Project Based Learning in formal education systems.

Paper: the art and practice of Project Based Learning

Key Concepts and Tools Presented in this Paper:

  1. Introduction to a pedagogy that is relevant to the period we live in, and which strives to cause a transformation in the perception of the concept “learning”.
  2. The essence of the PBL “method” from the conceptual and applied aspects, and the fact that it addressed the need for “third wave” pedagogy.
  3. Three ways of applying and inculcating project-based learning at public schools that connect with the spaces in which they exist.
  4. The barriers that hinder such processes of change as well as the motivating forces that facilitate them, both inside and outside of the school.
  5. Tools for guiding this type of change process, and links that can help in understanding it
