This book is about project-based learning (PBL) in an Information and Communication Technology (ICT) environment. The book is designed for teachers who want to implement PBL using ICT in their classrooms. Teachers who do this will gain increased understanding of ICT alongside their students.

PBL has long been a teaching tool of many teachers. PBL is enhanced by routine use of ICT, so it is now a vehicle for learning “traditional” subject matter content and for learning how to use ICT effectively. The overarching goal of this book is to help students learn to use their minds (higher-order thinking and problem-solving skills) and ICT effectively as they plan and carry out complex projects.
