The developers of any new educational technology must be aware of the environment into which it is to be introduced and the interactions that take place within it. Such interactions will involve the curriculum, teaching practices, the teaching profession, and system and administrative requirements that generally apply. Process-Based Instruction (PBI) was developed after consideration was given to the contribution of each of these four influences, taken separately and together. It is both a curriculum model and a teaching– learning method. As a curriculum model, PBI provides a framework for structuring classroom activities that facilitates effective communication and support for all students. As a teaching–learning method, PBI includes a number of strategies that focus on teaching students how to learn and solve problems.
