I used rubrics and continuously edited them. I shared them with students so they could learn how to assess their progress and give me feedback about their learning and the rubrics. Rubrics are an opportunity for continuous conversations about teaching and learning.

Check out this great visual on Problem Based Learning (PBL)from Mia MacMeekin. It provides a look at the seven steps found in PBL. For each step she provides a number of ways for students to think about the specific process. What are the seven areas?

1. Start with a real life problem

2. Map it out

3. Prototype, prototype, prototype

4. Be creative

5. Think global

6. Join a challenge

7. Set goals

8. Create learning moments

Along the way she also makes some suggestions on what you should be doing as a teacher. If PBL is new to you (or your students) this would be a great visual to have your students recreate, where they may change words and add images to make it their own. Then hang it in your classroom and support them as they become experienced at problem based learning.

Exploring education: Project Based Learning – meaningful action … or merely activity?

Exploring education: Project Based Learning – meaningful action … or merely activity? | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it

The world is awash with people and groups wishing to reform education.  Some want to go “back to basics” while others want to go “forward to the future”.       

 

Amongst the more progressive groups there is a surprising degree of similarity in what they propose. Thus, the RSA “Opening Minds” project in the UK or the US based P21 or the Apple Classroom of Tomorrow Today all have a high degree of overlap - indeed a Venn diagram of their views would be almost a single circle.

This is a quick view of Project Based Learning that may help your students (or teachers in your school new to PBL) understand the key components:

* Driving question or challenge

* Need to know

* Inquiry and innovation

* 21st century skills

* Student voice and choice

* Feedback and revision

* Publicly presented product

Project Based Learning is a great way for students to engage in authentic learning projects. For more information on Project Based Learning (and lots of great resources) check out the Buck Institute for Learning website located at http://bie.org/

They have been around for over 25 years and recently revamped their website.

4 Phases of Inquiry-Based Learning: A Guide For Teachers

4 Phases of Inquiry-Based Learning: A Guide For Teachers | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it

Beth Dichter's curator insight, October 12, 2013 7:20 PM

This indepth post explores inquiry-based learning. The four phases are:

1. Interaction - Big Idea: Dive into engaging, relevant, and credible media forms to identify a “need” or opportunity for inquiry

2. Clarification - Big Idea: Summarizing, paraphrasing, and categorizing learning with teacher or expert support

3. Questioning - Big Idea: Asking questions to drive continued, self-directed inquiry

4. Design - Big Idea: Designing an accessible, relevant, and curiosity-driven action or product to culminate and justify inquiry

Each of the four phases also includes information on tones, student indicators, teacher indicators, appropriate questions and apps.

There are also 4 questions for student-based reflection and ten adjustments you may make as a teacher to adjust to teaching inquiry-based learning.

There are many forms of teaching that incorporate inquiry-based learning including project-based learning, blended learning, and challenge-based learning. You may find your students more engaged in the learning process if you include some components of inquiry-based learning in your classroom.

Grace Tobin's curator insight, May 18, 1:26 AM
This article gives a brief overview of the difference between Problem Based Learning and Project Based Learning. As a preservice teacher learning about the PBL model for the first time I found this information quite useful to be able to distinguish between Problem and Project Based Learning when researching and investigating these models. The article also included examples of how real life global or societal issues can be used in Problem Based Learning in the classroom.

This is a great article for a pre-service teacher wanting to gain knowledge on the differences between project based learning and problem based learning. When i first began my teaching profession I struggled to systematically place a sequence of activities together that interacted both. Since reading this insight it has given me a great deal of confidence to go ahead and try and engage students through both methods.
Jayden Batterson's curator insight, May 29, 9:41 PM
An insightful guide for pre-service teachers who want to understand the differences between project based learning and problem based learning. As a pre-service teacher, myself and not particularly having to deal with a PBL model yet I found this article quite informative in explain how to integrate these concepts within a classroom setting. One point that I found particularly interesting, is that the author draws upon the idea that whether a learning activity is authentic or not, it doesn’t matter if it comes from a problem based learning perspective because ‘fictitious scenarios’ can be designed to provide learners with a contrived environment to work on their ill-structured problems. Another point I think worth noting is that ‘think global’ step, getting a professional abroad to get involved can be an important tool to utilize. It brings back memories of history lessons, where they would take you to a lecture hall where the leading professional in that historical field would talk for two hours to take you through some of the challenges modern historians and society itself has with that particular subject matter. So, overall an informative assessment of problem based learning that poses some interesting ideas and insights on how to implement the principles of PBL in your future classes.

The Power of the 4Cs: The Foundation for Creating a Gold Standard for Project Based Learning (PBL) | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it

Creating a gold-standard for Project Based Learning and then reaching that standard may seem to be a bit like scaling a mountain - at first glance-difficult, very risky, and somewhat mysterious. However, even the tallest mountains can be climbed if you have the right knowledge, skills, tools, and support—and perhaps a little courage.  The same can be said for Project Based Learning. We at the Partnership for 21st Century Skills think a lot about skills - so let’s explore the skills that are needed.

How to Reinvent Project Based Learning to Be More Meaningful | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it
Project-based learning continues to be misinterpreted as a single teaching strategy rather than as a set of design principles that allow us to introduce the philosophy of inquiry into education in an intelligent and grounded way. It’s time to not only address the flaws in PBL, but to reinvent it in a way that leads to deeper learning, creative inquiry, and a better fit with a collaborative world in which doing and knowing are one thing.

The graphic (above) provides a nice visual to help understand the difference between project based learning and traditional units with a final project. Where are the differences? Traditional units have lectures, activities, quizzes, a review, an exam the project. With project bases learning you begin with an event plus a rubric and then move through a series of activites that help students reach benchmarks. Project based learning is authentic learning.

More information on this can be found in the post.
