Projects v. PBL (Project Based Learning)

I thought this infographic had a really nice explanation about the differences between a regular project, and project based learning (PBL).  PBL seem to be something new in the last few years (I saw a lot of it this year when I had the chance to work with second graders more often) and I think it’s a great way to extend thinking as well as let students chose a lot of what they research and how.  This is ‘real world work’, not just busy work!
