  24. 24. Project-Based Learning © 2009 Michael Speaks
  25. 25. “Project-Based Learning is a comprehensive instructional approach to engage learners in sustained, cooperative investigation (Bransford & Stein, 1993). Project-Based Learning is a teaching and learning strategy that engages learners in complex activities. It usually requires multiple stages and an extended duration--more than a few class periods and up to a full semester. Projects focus on the creation of a product or performance, and generally call upon learners to choose and organize their activities, conduct research, and synthesize information.” “Project-Based Learning - What is it?” Seungyeon Han and Kakali Bhattacharya Department of Educational Psychology and Instructional Technology, University of Georgia (http://projects.coe.uga.edu/epltt/index.php?title=Constructionism%2C_Learning_by_Design %2C_and_Project_Based_Learning)
  26. 26. Elements of Project-Based Learning Melissa Palmer, et al. 7 components of project-based learning: http://youtu.be/Vm_NoayYkLo • Learner-centered environment – feedback and continued assessment • Collaboration – peer feedback, pbl. • Integration of Content – clear goals in process AND product • Authentic Tasks – addresses real-world issues relevant to students’ lives and/or communities • Multiple Presentation Modes – multiple technologies used in the planning, preparation or presentation of project work. • Time Management – need time for meaningful doing and learning. • Innovative Assessment – ongoing, varied and frequent assessment from peers, self, instructor as well as reflection.
  27. 27. What are the benefits? According to Edutopia: •Connecting academic learning to reallife issues and applications •Better retention of knowledge gained •Skills in pursuing individually-directed work as well as team-based work •Improved technology integration
  28. 28. Instructor > Designer/ Architect Student > Active knowledge
  29. 29. Planning Considerations • Real world challenge or problem at the core • Curriculum Based • Small team organization of course • Multi-disciplinary/multi-skill approach to work • Must be a deliverable(s) at the end of the course • Peer evaluation and accountability as well as instructor evaluation. • Other considerations: ‣ Journaling ‣ Shared Workspace ‣ Scaffolding – build skills through smaller projects that lead
