Project-Based Inquiry Global (PBI Global)

Project-Based Inquiry (PBI) Global is a collaborative, inquiry-based instructional strategy that connects students internationally through interdisciplinary inquiry projects. These projects require students to ask compelling questions; gather and analyze sources; creatively synthesize claims and evidences; critically evaluate and revise; and share, publish and act.

Teachers have many demands on their time, which is why PBI Global is designed on a continuum of complexity. The following features can be used to design a PBI Global that fits the needs of any classroom and allows teachers to decide the nature of the project.

a) curriculum alignment
b) project duration
c) student autonomy
d) nature of collaboration
