    • Project-Based Learning versus Teacher- Centered Instruction
      What is Project-Based Learning?
      What does PBL look like?
      What is being said about Project-Based Learning?
      Research on Project-Based Learning.
      How does it compare to teacher-centered instruction?
    • What is Project-Based Learning?
      Project-Based Learning (PBL) is a learning by doing approach to education. 2
      “rigorous projects are carefully planned, managed, and assessed to help students learn key academic content, practice 21st Century Skills (such as collaboration, communication & critical thinking), and create high-quality, authentic products & presentations.”1
    • What does PBL look like?
      “Project Based Learning is generally done by groups of students working together toward a common goal. Performance is assessed on an individual basis, and takes into account the quality of the product produced, the depth of content understanding demonstrated, and the contributions made to the ongoing process of project realization.” 3
    • What does PBL look like continued.
    • What is being said about PBL?

      In this video clip, students reflect on their experiences with PBL and how it effected them. 4
    • Research on Project-Based Learning
      “A three-year 1997 study of two British secondary schools -- one that used open-ended projects and one that used more traditional, direct instruction -- found striking differences in understanding and standardized achievement data in mathematics.
      The study by Jo Boaler, found that students at the project-based school did better than those at the more traditional school both on math problems requiring analytical or conceptual thought and on those considered rote.
      Three times as many students at the project-based school received the top grade achievable on the national examination in math.” 5
    • How does it compare to teacher-centered instruction?
      Project-Based Learning
      Teacher-Centered Instruction
      students explore real-world problems and challenges
      students are evaluated on the basis of their projects
      work within their community while seeing the positive effect of their work 6
      actively involves students in the learning of organized bodies of knowledge
      interactive questioning that encourages students to make connections between important facts, concepts, and generalizations 7
    • Conclusion
      Project-Based Learning is an instructional approach that is designed to actively engage students in the learning process while seeing the effects of their research. Compared with teacher-centered instruction, which is centered around the teacher leading the instruction and discussion, PBL lets students be in charge of their own learning, but still allowing the teacher to be the facilitator.
