Project Based Learning—
classroom approach in which students actively explore real-world challenges
and acquire a deeper knowledge
Addresses real-life issues, has the teacher as the facilitator or coordinator,
motivates the students, and encourages advanced thinking skills, and promotes
collaboration between students.
Students learn by doing, through questioning, inquiry, and critical thinking.
Experts report that knowledge stays with students longer through PBL.
Role in 21st Century Education-
PBL makes school more like real-life and often results in deeper learning
and engaged, self-directed learners.
As we put together the robots we are taking different recycled items to create
We created two YouTube videos ad a visual for our unit plan.
3. Unit Plan Poster-
We used PowerPoint to create a poster to print in the LRC.
We created a PowerPoint to go along with our unit plan containing a title page,
analysis of the learners, main objective, day by day breakdown, use of
technology, and work cited.
5. Desktop Publishing-
We created two websites and added our PowerPoint and things such as a table,
Technology gives students the opportunity to take their education
into their own hands.
For example, students can use a tool such as Movie Maker to aid not
only in their understanding of a subject, but their classmates as well.
By creating a movie about their current lesson, Movie Maker
encourages students to communicate with each other and to learn to
use new technology.
Movie Maker is also an effective tool in evaluating a students
understanding of key themes in a lesson.
