  1. Project based learning
    In Project-based learning,learning is contextual, creative, and shared. Students collaborate on meaningful projects that require critical thinking, creativity, and communication in order for them to answer challenging questions or solve complex problems. By making learning relevant to them in this way, students see a purpose for mastering state-required skills and content concepts. Students aren’t just assessed on their understanding of academic content, but on their ability to successfully apply that content when solving authentic problems. Through this process, project based learning gives students the opportunity to develop the real life skills required for success in today’s world. Microsoft helps in using
    Collaborative Tools in the Classroom.
    Tools for Engaging All Learners in the Classroom
    Effective Communication Tools for Teachers
    Classroom Organization Tools for Teachers.
    I invite all educators to share their thoughts,views and experiences about different Microsoft tools for different phases of Project Based Learning.
