Project-Based Learning: What is it?

Project-Based Learning: What is it? | Christian high School libraries | Scoop.it

Project-based learning (PBL) is a method used to cultivate learning and teach students 21st century skills. The idea is “built upon authentic learning activities that engage student interest and motivation,” and “generally reflect the types of learning and work people do in everyday world outside the classroom”

I like the graph that displays the difference between a typical classroom project and  project-based learning. Also, some useful weblinks to other resources in the topic.

Elizabeth Hutchinson's comment, January 26, 2013 3:56 AM
This is done in my son's school and depending on who set the project it can work really well. If though the teacher has not worked with the school librarian it doesn't work quite as well.

7 Ways My Classroom is Better Because I Connect

7 Ways My Classroom is Better Because I Connect | Christian high School libraries | Scoop.it

Being connected is not easy....on Twitter building relationships and co-moderating and participating in education chats. Constantly reading (and writing!) blogs; all this in the pursuit of being a better teacher. Although the time it takes to develop a network is substantial, the benefits of connection far outweigh the efforts.

Project-Based Learning: Real-World Issues Motivate Students

Project-Based Learning: Real-World Issues Motivate Students | Christian high School libraries | Scoop.it

In a growing number of schools, educators are echoing Papert's assertion that engaging students by starting with the concrete and solving hands-on, real-world problems is a great motivator.

 

Students conduct research using a variety of sources, from the Internet to interviews with experts. They work on the project over an extended period of time -- six weeks or more -- because of the in-depth nature of the investigation.
