Why Problem-Based Learning Is Better

Why Problem-Based Learning Is Better | Languages, Learning & Technology | Scoop.it

[ ... ] "Life is messy, and so are well-constructed PrBL units. Most problems that we come across in life — in work, in politics, in religion, in our families — have no single correct answer.

 

Think of the last true problem you had to solve in your life. Who should I vote for? What house should I buy? Who should I marry? What church should I attend? What car is best for me? American, Chinese or Italian tonight? There was no ONE CORRECT answer. There were probably multiple correct answers, some more correct than others maybe.

 

Good PrBL units are drawn from the headlines or real life situations. Finding the problem is easy. Writing a good Problem Based Learning unit takes time and effort."
