All about Project Based Learning – PBL

The real world works through projects.

The entrepreneurs of this world are those who have the ability to create them and the discipline to make them a reality.

At Avante we are guided by the Gold Standard PBL framework from PBL Works. This is a research-based model that helps educators improve, calibrate, and assess their practice, ensuring the highest quality projects for our students.

“Project Based Learning (PBL) is a teaching method in which students learn by actively engaging in real-world and personally meaningful projects. Students gain knowledge and skills by working for an extended period of time to investigate and respond to an authentic, engaging, and complex question, problem, or challenge.” – PBLWorks

PBL combines multidisciplinary elements to provide an education that reflects the real world.

How we do it?

We challenge our students to solve real-world problems and answer complex questions.

Each project is structured and purposeful – we motivate students to learn based on their passions, giving purpose to everything they do.

The Colombian academic curriculum and the American ‘common core’ are covered in a multidisciplinary way, with several subjects combined simultaneously in one project (we change the HOW, not the WHAT).

We offer a better way of learning, allowing children a deeper understanding of the topics through practical applications.

We develop emotional intelligence competencies – nurturing critical thinking, problem solving, creativity, collaboration, and communication skills.

We make learning fun and collaborative – connecting with students, parents, teachers, and experts in a creative environment.
