Seven Essentials for Project-Based Learning

Seven Essentials for Project-Based Learning | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it

A project is meaningful if it fulfills two criteria. First, students must perceive the work as personally meaningful, as a task that matters and that they want to do well. Second, a meaningful project fulfills an educational purpose. Well-designed and well-implemented project-based learning is meaningful in both ways.

The framework for embarking on a successful project.

JennaMRyan's curator insight, December 11, 2013 5:36 PM

In the Educational Leadership Magazine, September 2010 Edition, John LArmer and John R. Mergendoller wrote the article "Seven Essentials ofr Project-Based Learning."  The article opens with a secnario of a teacher plopping a packet of papers on desks saying create a poster on bacteria.  This is a too common "excuse" for a project that lacks meaning and depth.  The process of students' learning and depth of cognitive engagement are more important in PBL than the project.  The seven essentials of PBL  are listed as follows:

1. A Need to Know

2. A Driving Question

3. Student Voice and Choice

4. 21st Century Skills

5. Inquiry and Innovation'

6. Feedback and Revision

7. A Publicly Presented Product

 

In another source curated, the Projects v. PBL, one of the most important differences is that projects get turned in and PBL gets shared with the public, this is consistent with this resource.  Seems like a common thread betwen all these currated sources is this "Need to Know" concept.  All sources agree the project in question needs to stem from a good idea and a good idea is something that is engaging to the kids and sparks the "need" with in them "to know."  The comparison to plopping papers on a desk and making posters with PBL is such a dramatic difference.  I certainly remember making posters for projects in middle school, but if I were to get to make a poster as a component of PBL in my classroom, I'm sure I would have been more intrinsicly motivated and more engaged in the assignment.  I grew from reading this article because I can see seven practical steps and goals for implementing PBL in my future classroom outlined clearly.
