Laércio Bento's curator insight, October 29, 2013 9:03 AM

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. 

Rachel McGrath's curator insight, February 15, 2014 5:17 PM

Clear explanation of PBL and how it actually helps students in comparison to the traditional way of teaching.

Because if you believe in what Ian Gilbert calls The Great Educational Lie (do well at school and you'll get a good job) then passing exams is fine. But if you believe that "to succeed in business you need to break the rules" then we have a responsibility to teach content in a way that also teaches skills, dispositions and competencies needed to make our children indispensible in an uncertain future.

 

Some have asked me "why teach students in a digital environment if it's more work for you?"  Digital skills that the social media classroom seek to provide our students are going to become increasingly important in the workforce of tomorrow. We don't just teach content, we teach students; they will forget most lessons but if they have the tools to find the answers for themselves, our work will be done.
