Project based learning updated 2

  1. 1. PROJECT BASED LEARNING By: Jackie Morgan, Judi Thompson, Mary-Lynn Pell
  2. 2. Project Based Learning ◦ Description: 1.) Project Based Learning is a teaching method in which students gain knowledge and skills by working for an extended period of time to investigate and respond to an engaging and complex question, problem, or challenge. ◦ Description: 2.) Project-based learning is a dynamic classroom approach in which students actively explore real-world problems and challenges and acquire a deeper knowledge. ◦ Characteristics: ◦ It addresses real-life issues ◦ Has the teacher serve as facilitator ◦ Motivate students ◦ Encourage advanced thinking skills ◦ Promote collaboration ◦ (We got this info from the PowerPoint Blanco posted on Blackboard)
  3. 3. Importance ◦ PBL Helps Students Develop Skills for Living in a Knowledge-Based, Highly Technological Society ◦ PBL and Technology Use Bring a New Relevance to the Learning at Hand ◦ PBL Lends Itself to Authentic Assessment ◦ PBL Promotes Lifelong Learning ◦ PBL Accommodates Students with Varying Learning Styles and Difference
  4. 4. Role in 21st Century ◦ * Students compare information from different sources before completing an assignment ◦ * Students draw their own conclusions based on analysis of numbers, facts, or relevant information ◦ * Students try to solve complex problems or answer questions that have no single correct solution ◦ * Students give feedback to peers or assess other students' work ◦ * Students convey their ideas using media other than a written paper (such as posters, blogs, or videos) ◦ * Students answer questions in front of an audience ◦ * Students generate their own ideas about how to confront a problem ◦ * West Virginia teachers have been able to implement PBL "as a way to teach and assess 21st-century skills without sacrificing academic rigor," authors of the study point out. They also note that educators are managing to make this shift in instruction with diverse learners. ◦ * What's more, all the PBL teachers in the study have provided professional development to colleagues. These early adopters of PBL are walking the talk when it comes to
  5. 5. Implementing Technology ◦ 1. Create a Poster – create a poster using Glogster instead of getting out paper and markers ◦ 2. Videos – Students can show what they know using technology instead of pencil and paper ◦ 3. Blendspace – can combine different parts of project into one ◦ 4. PowerPoint – Students can create a power point as a project to show what they have learned about in the unit ◦ 5. Wiki- allows students to share and view their work and can be used in and outside the classroom
  6. 6. Example ◦ “Butter the Bread” project ◦ We will read the book, The Butter Battle Book, out loud to the students. ◦ After reading the book we will work on the Butter the Bread Project. ◦ Ask the students to predict what would come next if the story continued. ◦ As a class, think of ways the butter battle could have been avoided. Ask the students to choose the two ways they believe are the best, and print each way on a square of yellow construction paper 2” x 2”. ◦ Have the students make a piece of bread by cutting out cardboard. Students can then “butter” both sides of their “bread” with a way to avoid battle. ◦ Then we will suspend the bread slices from the ceiling using string, so that both reasons can be seen.
  7. 7. Conclusion ◦ In conclusion, project based learning is a way for students to expand their knowledge than just a traditional paper and pencil test ◦ This method does not discrimination against any resource or tool because it is about the students scaffolding together ◦ You can create really flexible lessons with project based learning ◦ Promotes social interaction which motivates students ◦ Allow students to critically think with out realizing it
