Project Based Learning

Project Based Learning | mrpbps iDevices | Scoop.it
In project based learning students are driven to learn content and skills for an authentic purpose. PBL involves students in explaining their answers to real-life questions, problems, or challenges. It starts with a driving question that leads to inquiry and investigation. Students work to create a product or presentation as their response to the driving question.

Technology can be helpful throughout a project, whether students use iPads, Chromebooks, Android tablets, laptops, or desktops. I've written a primer for each of the three major components of project based learning. I share useful websites and apps as I tell you about my take on project based learning.
John Pearce's insight:

Tony Vincent is just an all round nice guy who really knows his stuff. When he prepares content you know that not only is it extensively researched but that it grounded in theory. In this series of three quite extensive posts Tony tackles Project Based Learning from three perspectives, Crafting Questions, Investigating Authentic Questions and Creating Products to Show and Share Learning. In this case he also goes beyond his mobile focus to include Chromebooks and other technologies. This series is a must read for anyone wanting to 'get into PBL'.
