  • . Ill-structured problems, on the other hand, are messy like the problems that are faced in everyday life and in professional practice Students may need to draw from multiple disciplines
  • Teacher has already taught the material that will be covered on the test It’s all about the teacher
  • Students learn the material as they need it working through the problem It’s all about the student
  • Research shows that the most successful middle school teaching model uses these strategies which also happen to be strategies employed in PBL
  • PROJECT BASES LEARNING and PROBLEM based learning are similar, and the terms are sometimes used interchangeably. Both are based on a method inquiry into an authentic problem or question. Problem based learning is a term more commonly used in colleges and universities, while Project Based Learning is a term used in K -12 education in the United States. Outside the United States, problem based learning or ‘project work’ is the more common term for PBL. Project learning is often initiated with a Driving Questions whereas Problem-based learning begins with a problem, not just a question Seymour Papert is an MIT mathematician, computer scientist, and educator. He is one of the pioneers of artificial intelligence, as well as an inventor of the Logo programming language.
