Problem Based Learning

Problem Based Learning (PBL) is education centered on real-world situation where learning seeks to support the integration of practical User Centered Design and Human Centered Design Thinking into academic programs in the education sector.
Problem based learning works well with all students, making its strategies ideal for heterogenous classrooms where students with mixed abilities can pool their talents collaboratively to invent a solution. By allowing students to direct their own activities and by giving them greater responsibilities, teachers show them how to challenge themselves and learn on their own.
