A nice visual for the PBL process... it's a journey or a road (less traveled).

Lauren Jackson's curator insight, February 19, 3:50 PM

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.

Harry Greenhouse's curator insight, February 20, 9:57 PM

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.

A great, short article that exemplifies how purposeful, real-world projects are supported by tech (rather than driven by tech).

Lauren Jackson's curator insight, February 19, 3:59 PM

This video from Edutopia provided me with vivid examples of what Project Based Learning looks like in different schools and multiple age levels. I loved the worm project in elementary school  (that we watched in class as well), and I wish we did projects like that when I was in high school! These projects proved that standards and curriculum don't always have to be boring. Students conducted projects that aligned the standards of multiple subjects including math, science, and social studies.

This book, like Dr. Wagner’s previous one, has many different audiences; it is not a book exclusively for K-12 educators, and includes among its targets parents of young and school-age children, post-secondary educators, and, more generally, those many general nonfiction readers who have been influenced by Thomas Friedman to recognize that the “World is [Now] Flat” and it is essential that we confront the changing demands of our fast-changing times.

PBL é um bom caminho para mudar o jeito de dar aulas. Envolver os alunos no 'fazer', complementando e orientando, possibilita maior assimilação dos conteúdos e conceitos.
