  • 1. Using Technology with Authentic Learning in the Project Based Learning (PBL)
    By Jennifer Garrison
    Ed 5700 TwT
    Dr. Smirnova
  • 2. Project-based learning, (PBL) is the use of classroom projects, where students use technology and inquiry to engage with issues and questions that are relevant to their lives. These classroom projects are used to assess student's subject matter competence compared to traditional testing.
    What is Project Based Learning (PBL)
  • 3. Real-world problems capture students' interest, as the students
    acquire and apply new knowledge
    in a problem-solving context.
    The teacher plays the role of
    facilitator, working with
    students to frame worthwhile
    questions, structuring meaningful
    tasks, coaching both knowledge
    development and social skills,
    and carefully assessing what
    students have learned from the
    The Core Idea
  • 4. video
    Characteristics of PBL
    Is organized around an open-ended Driving Question or Challenge.
    Creates a need to know essential content and skills.
    Requires inquiry to learn and/or create something new.
    Requires critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, and various forms of communication.
    Allows some degree of student voice and choice.
    Incorporates feedback and revision.
    Results in a publicly presented product or performance.
  • 5. When students use technology as a tool to communicate with others, they take on an active role.
    Instructor’s role in Project Based Learning is that of a facilitator.
    The Instructor must structure the proposed question/issue so as to direct the student's learning toward content-based materials.
    Student role is to ask questions, build knowledge, and determine a real-world solution to the issue/question presented.
    Students must collaborate expanding their active listening skills and requiring them to engage in intelligent focused communication.
  • 6. Outcomes
    More important than learning science, students need to learn to work in a community, thereby taking on social responsibilities.
    Although students do work in groups, they also become more independent because they are receiving little instruction from the teacher.
  • 7. Project Based Learning has been almost exclusively implemented in poor communities. In other words, the poor are experimented on like they are lab rats.
    Attempts to implement PBL in wealthy school districts have failed primarily because the wealthy understand that traditional teaching methods.
    PBL has created a disaster in mathematics, the reason being that mathematics is primarily skill based at the elementary level.
