The development of 21st-century skills is especially crucial in developing countries, such as in India, where teachers and students are stuck with a curriculum that is highly outdated and of very little use in their future lives. Traditional teaching methods must be updated for the twenty-first century and schools must be infused with a project-based curriculum that allows students to identify practical and difficult problems on their own, create solutions, and conduct collaborative research to address them. With the application of collaborative project-based workshops in Internet technologies, mobile apps, and multimedia that promote the development of the four core skills (critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity), the purpose of this quantitative study is to investigate how teachers and students (8th to 10th grade) from rural schools in Meghalaya and Himachal Pradesh perceive these learning environments and what effect they have on their academic emotions. The results reveal that learners’ perceptions towards collaborative project-based learning are very positive and there is a significant increase in the emotions of enjoyment and hope after participating in these projects and, thus, provide useful insights into developing trends in society and technology, which will be crucial for teachers to use if they want to remain relevant in training the future workforce.
