By taking part in a learning process, the child is engaged in demanding intellectual activities. Regardless of the skills to be developed, they are introduced with problems solving activities. This is followed by a dialogue, a search for solutions with peers and with the teacher. “When you do it like this, does it work better? Is there another way to do it? How do others do it? How could you do it?”
Along the way, the child learns to make hypotheses, to verify them, to reformulate them for himself, for his peers, to accept to help and to be helped.
He/she will move on to a stage of systematisation and memorisation as soon as he/she has made the studied concept his/her own. From then on, he/she will be able to invest and enrich his/her new skills in the design and implementation of projects that will give meaning to his/her knowledge. This will enable him/her to become more emancipated, committed and enjoy recognition for his/her achievement. Once the project is over, the acquired skills will remain. Project based learning allows the child to confirm his/her academic knowledge in relation to projects developed within the school.
