What is the Most Important Element of a PBL Unit?

What is the Most Important Element of a PBL Unit? | Project Based Learning | Scoop.it

What is the most important element in PBL unit? There are8 elements to choose from:

* Significant Content

* A Need to Know

* A Driving Question

* Student Voice and Choice

* 21st Century Skills

* Inquiry and Innovation

* Feedback and Revision

* Publicly Presented Product

This post states that a driving question is most important. "If you find the right questions then most of the other factors identified are covered automatically."

The question then becomes "How do you generate a great question and who is the right person to generate that question?" To this the answer would be the students.

If this is an area where you are not sure how to work with students then look into the the work of the Right Question Institute (RQI) and their Question Formation Technique (QFT). To help you better understand this they provide a look at "how question generation was embedded at the heart of a PBL unit."

PBL's begin with a driving question, one that is relevant to the learner and fosters engagement. Feedback is ongoing and essential for learner to happen.

Want Engaged Learners? Sign PBL Contracts. - Getting Smart by John Hardison

Want Engaged Learners? Sign PBL Contracts. - Getting Smart by John Hardison | Project Based Learning | Scoop.it
There was a time when my sole purpose for living and breathing, my ultimate dream, was to sign a contract -- a contract to play professional baseball. I simply wanted the opportunity to work hard in order to create a better me for the entire team.

What if you take that energy and put it in your classroom, allowing students to sign a contract? This post shares the experience of a teacher in an American Literature course who began a project-based learning assignment that provided options for the students to demonstrate their learning through a project of their choice.
For more information continue on to the article.
