"Project-based learning is considered an alternative to paper-based, rote memorization, teacher-led classrooms. Proponents of project-based learning cite numerous benefits to the implementation of these strategies in the classroom including a greater depth of understanding of concepts, broader knowledge base, improved communication and interpersonal/social skills, enhanced leadership skills, increased creativity, and improved writing skills. (Wikipedia)"  PBL or Project-Based Learning is a method of teaching that has been around for a long time that is getting more attention because of how 21st century education technology can support the goals of PBL.  Basically, PBL allows for teachers to "ask" a question that allows students to solve in a variety of a ways using many different analytical methods.  Since Project-Based Learning incorporates a lot of different techniques and tools to use, I've decided to create a list of resources rather then just one of sites or apps.
