The Buck Institute for Education (BIE) is a go to site for learning about Problem-Based Learning, and they are offering four free one-week courses during February and March. The courses are:

* How to Create a Driving Question

* How to Manage Student Presentations

* How to Assess Critical Thinking

* How to Include Content and Competencies

You may register for the first two courses now. Registration for the other two will open on Feb. 4, 2015.

Additional information is available on the courses at the website (click through to the course).

There is a maximum enrollment of 300 so if you are interested in checking these out it would be good to go to the website sooner rather than later.

Thank you, Tom, for sharing. Problem- and Project Based Learning are highly interactive, engaging, and student-focused, making them excellent choices for skill development.

In an effort to help those teachers out, Katie and I found a fabulous new visual diagram that's all about which apps and tools go with the different parts of distributed project-based learning.

This infographic looks at Project Based Learning (PBL) and divides it into three main sections:

* Organize and co-ordinate work

* Build background knowledge & inspire

* Co-design *making*

The second and third areas are then decided to more clearly deliniate the areas each covers. The last final two sections provide more specific concepts of what it required and also one or more suggestions of tech tools that will assist the process. There are additional groupings as shown in the infographic above.

More and more teachers are engaging in some form of PBL and this visual may serve as a great base to help create a strong foundation and provide ideas of technology tools that might assist in the process.

I really like this resources because it shows where students are getting information for their projects.  The projects are learned through resources that are distributed across many different fields, websites, and search engines.  This allows students to engage in many different types of content curation sites.  Google and skype are a few examples of resources.  The visual is broken up into instant learning and coalitious segments showing how some sites are good for overlapping purposes.  This is an interesting view of PBL sources.

Using formative tools for better project results

Using formative tools for better project results | Special Science Classroom | Scoop.it

"In a high-school art room, I watched a student working at an easel. When I asked about her progress, she explained that she was attempting to paint sunflowers in the style of Monet, her favorite artist. She told me she liked how the flowers were looking but said the vase was giving her trouble. She planned to keep reworking it, applying layers of acrylic until she got the play of light just the way she wanted. Then she laughed and said, “You should see what’s underneath! I bet there are three or four versions beneath this one.”"

Working with students and helping them understand their learning process is important. If you are planning on utilizing project based learning then many of the formative assessments you may choose will provide students with an understanding of their learning process.

How can you include more formative assessments? The post looks at three areas.

* Vary assessment strategies.

* Look beyond content mastery.

* Facilitate self-assessment.

Do you have great formative assessments that you use? Consider sharing one in the comment area.
