Crazy for First Grade: Differentiating Math!!!

Crazy for First Grade: Differentiating Math!!! | Project Based Learning | Scoop.it
jessica slater's insight:

A fun PBL lesson for 1st grade math involving finding one less, one more, ten less, ten more of any given number up to 100. This unique PBL gets students engaged by creating puzzles and charts, using technology to show information, and working collaboratively in groups. One of the major questions is how to utilize PBL for math. This is a great resource for PBL lessons in math. #EDCI397

PBL is a method to helping our students become globally competent and resilient. Through PBL, we are able to teach our students how to understand and participate in a rapidly changing world as well as allows our students the ability to change or maintain their place in our world.  #EDCI397 mission

Another article that provides explicitly the essentials for Project Based Learning. The Buck Institute focuses on PBL to produce 21st Century Skills. Incorporating technology is fundamental in PBL. What worries me, as a future educator, is the unknown. I want to fully prepare my students with the skills they need, but we are preparing them for an unknown future. For example, in elementary school my computer class focused on "words typed per minute." But now students need to know much more than that when it comes to technology. How can we prepare globally competent students when we don't know what the global sphere will look like in 2020 and beyond?

This picture truly says 1000 words, which is why I like it.  While reading an article, this one or another, is necessary to understanding what PBL is, this graphic is an excellent at-a-glance reminder.  I'd actually like to take this image, transform it into a trumpet flower, then slide the graphic into the front of my planning binder to act as a beautiful reminder of what I should imbed into my lessons.

This article by BIE shows the basics to project based learning. The article shows the major important factors that make project based learning possible and how to do them. Like we covered in class, PBL's need to be significant and relate-able so they are interesting as well as have a driving question that works as the thesis statement for the project.

jessica slater's insight:

One of the major benefits of PBL is being able to apply practical implication. A great motivator for students is to create opportunities with concrete, hands-on, real-world problems. PBL makes school more like real life in that students are able to answer questions that are relevant to them . PBL involves having an initial discussion about a topic, fieldwork, and presenting the information. Kids that are excited about what they learn expand their interest in learning as a whole and enhance cognition.

jessica slater's insight:

Being creative might not come as natural to some students as it does to others. We need to nurture creativity in all students by designing projects that bring out creativity, encouraging and promoting creativity within the classroom, and building competency by teaching them the process of innovation. Creativity and innovation can be measured by describing what creativity looks like to students as well as qualities that make the product creative. Ensuring students know these factors will really help students who feel that they are less creative. Building an environment where students feel safe, engaged, and and supported really enhances cognition. This article gives options for measuring creativity and innovation without placing restrictions on what being creative means.
