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.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, August 1, 2013 5:00 AM

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.

Yes! Precisely!

I personally think that PBL allows students to take control over their own learning and that this kind of pedagogy should be implemented regularly within the classroom as it suits more students learning styles.

Agreed. We run an amazing, months-long PBL project for our freshmen that culminates in a community-celebrated authentic assessment.

What Makes Project-Based Learning a Success?

Manor overview article - STW 1203

 

At one high school in Texas, where every class in every grade is project based, the answer is devotion to a consistent process, belief in relationships, and commitment to relevance and rigor. Results? Hard to beat.

You curate so many sites! You must drink more coffee than me, and I'm on 4-5 cups a day.
