Project-based learning continues to be misinterpreted as a single teaching strategy rather than as a set of design principles that allow us to introduce the philosophy of inquiry into education in an intelligent and grounded way.

Project Based Learning

Project Based Learning | Instructional Technology Tips | Scoop.it

I’ve been teaching using a project-based learning pedagogy since mid-2010 when I was introduced to PBL by my friend, Dean Groom.


Since then I have had some wonderful learning experiences with PBL and I enjoy sharing both my successes and failures and experiments in learning on my blog. I thought it’d be helpful for other people if I put all of my PBL-related posts on one page, just in case you’re starting out and you want to see how another teacher is doing it too.

First-hand accounts from a teacher implementing PBL. Being a new teacher will be intimidating, but reading these anecdotes has been helpful in calming my nerves and thinking about different ways to use PBL in the classroom.

Ashlee David's curator insight, February 19, 2014 3:05 PM

I love hearing how other teachers go about planing their lessons. This is one of the things that scars me the most about teacher. Planing a lesson as well as pulling it off smoothly. Seeing how other teacher do it helps me with ideas for my class and what I should try and avoid. The whole idea of PBL is new to me. I have rarely done it as a student let a lone try to plane my own for a class of 25 students. It's nice to know the process other teachers are going through. This is a great blog to get ideas about PBL. 

Rachel McGrath's comment, February 19, 2014 11:24 PM
I also found this source as well, although I think from someone else. Either way I thought it was important as well to see how other teachers were implementing PBL and how I could learn from their mistakes.

Chris Carter's curator insight, February 2, 6:24 PM

Rubrics are far superior than a teacher simply "knowing" what a grade should be. If nothing else, rubrics make clear to students what the target is.

Chris Carter's comment, February 4, 6:22 PM
Thanks for sharing this resource. Rubrics answer many questions before these questions are asked, make clear to students how they will be evaluated, and greatly reduce the arguing over grades that can occur.

The Difference Between Doing Projects Versus Learning Through Projects

The Difference Between Doing Projects Versus Learning Through Projects | Instructional Technology Tips | Scoop.it
We’ve clarified the difference between projects and project-based learning before. Projects are about the product, while project-based learning is about the process. Projects are generally teacher-directed, universal, and tangent to the learning, while project-based learning is student-centered, personal, and the learning pathway itself. Put simply, it is an approach to learning rather than something to complete.
