The Bottom Line
Introducing project management as a life skill into K12 education requires teachers to recognize that children can understand simple tasks if expressed in simple language. Teachers should identify the criteria for examining the success of a project. Information technology is the basis of managing all the other aspects of a project. It can enable the learners to work together as a team, manage time, communicate effectively and allocate the project's finances.
These project management skills equip learners on project-related matters such as problem-solving, critical collaboration, communication, and innovation. Assessing learning progress is needed to ensure feedback and enhance continuous improvement in the whole process.
