PBL – the best teaching method in the 21st century instruction

PBL – the best teaching method in the 21st century instruction | iGeneration - 21st Century Education | Scoop.it

Projects and activities are the keys to a better understanding of PBL. They are no longer tasks that students need to finish after a traditionally-taught unit but rather a set of learning experiences and tasks that guide students in inquiry toward answering a central question, solving a problem, or meeting a challenge. Research has clearly proved that projects that are well-designed and based on students experiences  improves students motivation to learn, help them see how school connects to the outside world by making learning relevant and meaningful, and promotes greater civic participation and global awareness.

Selin Gelinci's curator insight, October 27, 2013 6:09 AM

This scoop it profile by @Tom D'Amico (@TDOttawa)  includes many useful blogs and articles that aim to teach in the 21st century. This includes learning with the use of technology. What he refers to as the 'iGeneration' includes many useful updates that can be used for both the students and teachers in the classroom. A few i came across that sparked my interest were a description on how to set up a blog with wordpress for teachers, this can be very useful to me as a student now and also in the future. I enjoy D'Amico's profile as he scoops quite interesting topics.

Jane Weston's curator insight, February 16, 11:58 PM

When curriculum resources are limitless due to the access we have to on-line materials, then the question we ask about those materials become more important. Values Education helps us all to ask the right questions! See some innovative whole school projects at:

If you're a user of Google's very efficient, feature-rich Gmail service, you mightn't know that, in actual fact, you have two different email addresses through which you can be reached. This ideal if, say, you wish to make two accounts for a specific site or service, but want all notifications and correspondence to be sent to the same inbox, and although many of you will already be aware of this little tip, it's still a useful one to know.

How can we use Connected Learning principles to promote 21st century learning?

How can we use Connected Learning principles to promote 21st century learning? | iGeneration - 21st Century Education | Scoop.it
Kids are learning everywhere. Today, the traditional school forms a single, albeit important, node in a larger learning environment. The model of Connected Learning acknowledges this shift in where students learn, how they learn, who they learn from, and how they express that learning.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, Today, 1:32 PM

The one resource suggests teachers are involved in a journey to rethink, reiterate, and assess what is happening in their classrooms. Another key point is the "traditional School" remains a central node in the journey. The two points work together. Without rethinking the role School plays, we continue to run into barriers. Connected learning is a faddish cliche. Rethinking school continuously and what that means means connected learning, with and without digital technologies, serves an important function in teaching and learning.
