The Differences Between Projects And Project-Based Learning

The Differences Between Projects And Project-Based Learning | TEACHING ENGLISH FROM A CONSTRUCTIVIST PERSPECTIVE | Scoop.it

Cecilia Rosas's curator insight, July 23, 2013 7:13 PM

Projects can be done at home without teacher guidance or team collaboration. They are based upon directions and they’re usually done like last year, or end of term activity.

On the flip side, Project-Based Learning is a fluid technique to enhance learning that really looks nothing like projects. For example, in a PBL scenario, the teacher’s work is typically done prior to the start of the project, it’s graded on a clearly defined rubric, and has driving questions that keep the learning going.

BASES - Languages & Training's curator insight, July 24, 2013 4:01 AM

Dea Teachers,

 

Have a look at this interesting article.

Marta Braylan's curator insight, July 26, 2013 7:43 PM

Good analysis on the difference between projects in general and "project based learning".
Read and decide where your CLIL projects stand. Are your working with "Project based CLIL" or are you just doing plain "projects" in class???

Hace ya mucho tiempo, desde el minuto tres exactamente, que yo dejé de creerme el papel de la asesora como aquella que va repartiendo perlas de sabiduría por el árido campo de los centros educativos. Si queremos tener algún tipo de influencia y que la innovación llegue al alumnado más necesitado de apoyo y ayuda (de cualquier tipo), más vale que cambiemos de modelo. La reflexión siguiente ayuda, creo, a clarificar ideaas y así hay que entenderla como punto de partida para elabora vuestro model propio (el que os y les sirva para ayudar a la mejora de esas aulas o esos centros)
