Exploring Digital Tools
The aim of the PjBL Toolkit is to initially introduce students to a range of tools that might help them throughout their project and beyond. This activity can be adapted to suit any small project. The example used is as follows:
Your project is to plan a Christmas Party for the Exec Team at Sheffield Hallam University. Using the seven stages of a project and corresponding digital tools cards, explore how these may help you to complete this task.

Matching PjBL to Digital Capabilities
This activity opens the opportunity to reflect on the skills a student is developing at each stage of a project. Using the Jisc Digital Capabilities Framework students can then categorise the skills. These can then be mapped to each of the seven stages of project based learning. The outcomes provide a focus for discussion.
