An educational approach in the form of Project Based Learning (PBL) is being adopted that falls under the umbrella of inquiry learning. School is trying hard to provide an alternative to paper based rote memorization. And PBL is being promoted as a part of the formative assessments for classes IX and X since 2010 on ward. Students have prepared more than 80 group projects and individual projects on various interdisciplinary topics.

Students actively explore real world problems and challenges, prepare power point presentations and poster presentations and up load on web portal, and slide share.com. Mini maths library has been created, through which students can take help to prepare new projects allotted to them. Students and teacher play their respective roles to make teaching learning effective. Auodidactism:-The model adopts the idea of inquiry based learning where students are presented with scenarios to identify their own research, questions and knowledge regarding the area. This paper discusses the features of self-learning and PBL approach. And design projects and material which could be used effectively in teaching learning process. The paper also highlights the use of computer assisted learning (CAL) used for self-learning and project based learning.

Students take responsibility, or ownership for their learning, Instructor role is that of a facilitator. Formative assessments are being used in order to be transparent to parents. Parents help is being sought in the teaching learning process.

BALA- (Building as Learning Aid) is being used to teach mathematical concepts. Projects Graphical representation of school is based on co-ordinate geometry, result analysis on statistics, finding the area of different regions of the school and banking are few examples of group projects prepared by the students. Web portal (selflearning withssingh.pbworks.com) was launched nearly two years ago where students prepare power point presentations of their projects and upload them on web portal and slideshare.com from their home computers. At present portal has 500 files of different activities and portal has been accessed nearly 1000 times so far.

Amalgamation of PBL and self-learning is being used as innovative teaching method, no single teaching method has been proven more effective than other. Learning needs requires artful teaching, as well as industrial strength project management, when implemented well PBL, replicable skill, as well as improves teachers and students attitude towards learning.
