Project-based learning is an instructional model for classroom activity that shifts emphasis away from practices of isolated, short term, teacher-centered lessons in favor of learning activities that are more long-term, interdisciplinary, and centered on the student. These projects are complex, centered around challenging questions or problems which involve students in investigative activities, problem-solving, design, and decision making.
