A Must Have Rubric for Effective Implementation of PBL in Your School ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Must Have Rubric for Effective Implementation of PBL in Your School ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | The Future of Education  - Where do we go now? | Scoop.it

"Project based learning is a teaching learning methodology that has been widely praised for its efficacy in enhancing learning achievements.The premise underlying PBL revolves around  getting students engaged in authentic learning events through the integration of mini-projects in class. These projects can be as short as one day and as long as a year. However, there is a difference between mere projects and project based learning. This table from Teachbytes provides a great illustration of the nuances between the two concepts."

Excellent table reminding about the difference between projects and project based learning. Projects are too easily assigned as exercises to students, without paying attention to the issues on the right hand side of this table.

Tech use in the classroom and online have sky rocketed...it ranges from more computers in the classroom, to mobile devices, social media, flipping classrooms and students submitting assignments anywhere, any time.

Infographics images are the best way to express thoughts through your article. In my opinion, one info-graphics equals a 500 word article.

Oh gosh, not another word processing software, but then no, I guess, One note is more versatile and it is free too! In times when the concept of BYOD has been in place and when the device has to be small enough, then it makes sense to use an IPad or a tab. One note works quite well on tabs so it makes sense to use it more regularly.
