Education systems around the world are struggling to transform to better engage students in all their diversity, incorporate and adapt to transformative technology, build real-world sustainability competencies, and recalibrate to provide an education that is relevant for rapidly evolving circumstances. Project Based Learning is an approach to both K-12 and adult education that is designed to extend beyond knowledge acquisition and into competency development, enabling real-world action coupled with a focus on authenticity, inclusiveness, and community impact. This research utilized a literature review to analyze design considerations from a variety of PBL design frameworks and integrate them into a whole, including foundational concepts from Education for Sustainable Development and technology education, such as digital citizenship and emerging guidelines on academic integrity that anticipate and even encourage use of generative AI such as ChatGPT. This research is important because it may help make education more relevant to both students and society. Key findings include the following design dimension clusters: Knowledge, skills, and attitudes as competencies as the start point for design; authenticity, contexts of learning, and sustainability vision; intellectual challenge, depth of inquiry, and structure; artifacts of learning and meaningful audience; student voice, choice, diversity, and inclusion; layers of collaboration and assessment; technology, digital citizenship, and digital academic integrity; revision, reflection, criticality and reflexivity; and project, school, and community impact. Digital citizenship, digital academic integrity, project impact analysis, and both sustainability competencies and vision were noted to be underrepresented in previous frameworks.
