A Better List Of Ideas For Project-Based Learning - TeachThought

A Better List Of Ideas For Project-Based Learning - TeachThought | Self Directed Learning | Scoop.it

"

At TeachThought, we’re huge fans of project-based learning.

 

While there is no magic bullet of practice, program, or framework that automatically produces progressive and effective learning, what makes project-based learning exceptional is its flexibility. As it is, first and foremost, simply a curriculum planning tool, so much other “good stuff” that can support learning (game-based learning, learning simulations, place-based education, self-directed learning, etc.) can all be “embedded” in project-based learning.

 

With PBL, there is no “either/or” proposition: anything from open-ended,

play-based learning to data-driven, research-based instructional environments can all use PBL effectively."

This article is from TeachThought and they are huge fans of PBL.  This article says PBL is first and foremost simply a curriculum planning tool so other games and learning simulatinos can all be embedded in PBL.  There's no one size fits all way to appoach PBL but there are several great resources to help you along.  The article claims the heart and soul of PBL is genious of great project ideas including the purpose and audience of the project.  The following are a few of the items they suggest: create an interactive family tree from living family members, design an app, solve the problem of negative news, help local businesses increase environmental sustainability, dissect hte anatomy of viral web content and plan an MArs colony using current data from the MArtian landscape and atmosphere.

 

This resources seems to differ from the article Establishing a PBL Friendly Culture because it seems to say you can implement PBL in a classroom by having the kids do projects.  The other source I currated about Projects v. PBL would also be opposed to several notions mentioned in this article.  It looks like this resources give some awesome suggestions for great project ideas which it says is the heart and soul of PBL, so I will definily reference this resource in the future when I'm struggling to come up with ideas, but the philosophy behind the article seems slightly flawed compeared to the two articles previously mentioned.  I really liked this article for the ideas for projects.

27 Actions That Promote Self-Directed Learning

27 Actions That Promote Self-Directed Learning | Self Directed Learning | Scoop.it

"So I'm trying to better understand how people learn--not now they're taught in terms of teaching strategies, but more so learning strategies--only not really strategies...Learning actions, or cognitive actions."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, March 19, 2013 10:04 PM

How can we help out students become more self-directed in their learning? What tools can we provide them with to help them become self-directed learners (using 21st century tools and skills)? 

This post provides a list of 27 actions. The post states:

"The big idea is that these kinds of “brain actions” are not only the kinds of tasks you can use to create assignments, but more importantly are the kinds of acts that promote inquiry-based understanding. So rather than start with a topic–fractions, metaphors, or racism–you can simply insist on the cognitive action itself. Learners can choose topics of their own, or you can offer a range of topics."

With that as a background five of the actions are listed below. There is additional material in the post as well as another 22 actions.

* Challenge something

* Test the validity of a model

* Study the relationship between text and subtext

* Critique something

* Transfer a lesson or philosophical stance from one situation to another

Interesting how much of challenge it is to distinguish between teaching and learning. That is one of the obstacles to getting self-directed learning to become a mainstream feature in schools.

Moving at the Speed of Creativity | Why Your School Needs a Scratch Club [VIDEO]

Moving at the Speed of Creativity | Why Your School Needs a Scratch Club [VIDEO] | Self Directed Learning | Scoop.it

"

This past year, fourth and fifth grade students at Independence Elementary School in Yukon, Oklahoma, have had the opportunity to participate in an after-school Scratch Club led by STEM teacher Chris Simon. Scratch is a free program from the MIT Media Lab, which permits learners of any age to create games, tell stories, make animations, and much more. In its new 2.0 version http://ow.ly/lCBMv ; , Scratch is entirely web-based, so it can even run on a Chromebook! Yesterday was the final day of “Scratch Club” for students at Independence Elementary this year, and several students shared the reasons why they enjoy Scratch and have loved the Scratch Club. In this five minute video compilation of their ideas http://ow.ly/lCBKM ; , pay attention to how several students mention the importance of “agency” and choice. Many report how they love the opportunity to be self-directed in their learning and to have opportunities to use their imaginations to create. Also notice the way one student references the “hard fun” of programming, which is something Gary Stager talks about often in the context of students learning to code. "

"Each year I refresh this list, sharing my current perspective on those emerging technologies best suited to help engage students and improve learning outcomes in the coming academic year. The list has evolved quite a bit since last year as increased mobility and evolving resources lead the way to more self-directed learning and empowered teachers and students. I’ve also made a point of including Profession Development in the list, which is essential to the successful implementation of these technologies and can’t be overlooked!"
