Background

Project learning is one of the Four Key Tasks as proposed in "Learning to Learn" (2001).  It aims to help students develop generic skills and independent learning capabilities. With the deepening of the curriculum reform, Project Learning is now a common and essential learning experience for all students.

 

 

Project Learning as a Strategy to Promote Student Learning 

Project Learning enables students to construct knowledge, develop their generic skills as well as positive values and attitudes. It helps them connect knowledge, skills, values and attitudes through a variety of activities. These activities often involve other Key Tasks, for example, Reading to Learn and Information Technology for Interactive Learning, and at the same time are conducive to students’ development of moral and civic values.


 

Relationship with Other Key Learning Areas

Project learning is a powerful learning strategy that helps students develop their generic skills, integrate and apply their knowledge within and across the eight Key Learning Areas (KLAs).

Description

Problem Management

Project Learning usually starts with a question and a problem. Students have to understand and comprehend the problem from different perspectives and explore different ways to approach the question or problem to develop their creativity, critical thinking and problem-solving skills.

Information Management

Project Learning requires students to acquire, organise, and present information through different means and modes to develop their numeracy skills, information technology skills and study skills.

Self-management

Project Learning requires students to plan and manage their work to develop their communication skills, collaboration skills and self-management skills.
