Learning Through Exploration: The PBL Approach
Project-based learning is the immediate application of what they learned in the classroom in which they develop critical thinking, communication, and collaboration. The students work in groups to collectively solve challenging problems that are relevant in their immediate environment, community, and country. Through this 21st-century learning approach, the students help propose and solve problems that are all authentic, curriculum-based and interdisciplinary as it touches on several subject areas.
This year, Mano Amiga students will have two PBL projects per quarter where in they will get a chance to brainstorm solutions for different problems in their community, using knowledge and concepts they learned in the classroom.
STRONGER VOLUNTEER ACTIVITIES AND PROGRAMS THROUGH PBL
Through the PBL activities, various experts have selflessly volunteered their time to share their experience in their respective fields. Last week, Lance, a segment producer of TV 5, taught Gr. 4 students about producing videos to give helpful tips to students who are currently making webisodes about Science experiments, as part of their PBL project.
