Seven Essentials for Project-Based Learning

Seven Essentials for Project-Based Learning | Misc. teaching resources and digital media | 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 8:36 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.

On Blogging and Social Media: How to search Scoop.it sites

On Blogging and Social Media: How to search Scoop.it sites | Misc. teaching resources and digital media | Scoop.it

Scoop.it is a great platform for curating web based content and collecting together your own portfolio or reading lists to share with the world. One of my major problems though with Scoop.it, used to be finding the articles and links I had saved and searching for useful articles on other Scoop.it.

What Is Successful Technology Integration?

What Is Successful Technology Integration? | Misc. teaching resources and digital media | Scoop.it

Before we can discuss how to shift our pedagogy or the role of the teacher in a classroom that is integrating technology, it is important to first define what "technology integration" actually means. Seamless integration is when students are not only using technology daily, but have access to a variety of tools that match the task at hand and provide them the opportunity to build a deeper understanding of content.

A deeper understanding and learning through technology

natalia_walchli's curator insight, August 2, 2015 10:04 PM

Good article with some great advice.

Sandy Owens's curator insight, November 18, 2015 8:03 PM

Integration is at its best when a child or a teacher doesn't stop to think that he or she is using a technology tool.
