Why Schools providing Progressive Education in Beirut promote project-based learning?


Projects are focused on a lot in progressive education in Beirut. Reggio Emilia approach is mostly based on project-based learning, which is the current trend in the best schools all over the world. Reggio Emilia’s core values are that children as strong, capable and resilient learners.

There are various reasons to adopt this method of teaching and learning:


  • Empowerment :

Project-based learning can empower the pupils, as the learning happens naturally at the student’s pace.


  • Collaboration of divergent ideas and making them wonderful:

 The first benefit of project-based learning is the collaboration by discussing various ideas. A team can work better when participants work towards a common goal and that can only be done under the guidance of a well-trained teacher.


  • Solving problems with the help of the classmates:

 The problem of one individual can be solved by another through discussion. That is the power of team-work. Pupils will learn to merge their own goals with team goals, which will be a great asset.


  • Developing leadership skills:

Working in a group allows different students to learn about the areas that they excel in. This helps then realize what they are good at and where they can improve. Working in a group also allows students to reveal the leader within themselves.


  • Enhanced levels of creativity:

Creativity levels are always high in projects and novel ideas turn into the realities.


Curiosity a great factor to success:

No doubt an inquisitive nature is essential for growth at every level but it can be nicely enhanced if the work is done by project based learning.
