Transcript of WHat is a pbl!?

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 a complex question, problem, or challenge.
WHAT ARE SOME CHALLENGES FROM OTHER SCHOOLS!?

7 KEY PARTS OF A PBL:
1. Need to Know
2. A Driving Question
3. Student Voice and Choice
4. 21st Century Skills
5. Inquiry and Innovation
6. Feedback and Revision
7. A Publicly Presented Product
WHAT IS A PBL!



1. NEED TO KNOW
Many students find schoolwork meaningless because they don't perceive a need to know what they're being taught. We as teachers can powerfully activate students' need to know by launching a project with an "
entry event
" that engages interest and initiates questioning. An
entry event
can be almost anything: a video, a lively discussion, a guest speaker, or a field trip that sets up a scenario.
2. Driving Question
A good driving question captures the heart of the students and gives them a sense of purpose and challenge. It will be open ended, complex, and linked to the core of what we want you to learn. Examples of some
Driving Questions.

ABSTRACT: When is war justified?
CONCRETE: Is our water safe to drink?
OR SOLVING A PROBLEM: How can we improve this website so that more young people will use it?
3. STUDENT VOICE AND CHOICE
We want the project to feel meaningful to you, so you will have more voice and choice for the path of your project.
We can give you limited choice which lets you select what topic to study within a general driving question or choose how to design, create, and present products.
On the higher end of the scale you can decide what products you will create, what resources you will use, and how you will structure your time.
4. 21st Century Skills
This project should give you several opportunities to build your 21st century skills such as collaboration, communication, critical thinking, and the use of technology, which will serve you well in the workplace and life.
5. INQUIRY AND INNOVATION
6. FEEDBACK AND REVISION
7. PRESENT IT TO THE PUBLIC
In real inquiry, you will follow a trail that begins with your own questions, leads to a search for resources and the discovery of answers, and often ultimately leads to you generating new questions, testing ideas, and drawing their own conclusions.
With real inquiry comes innovation. Innovation is a new answer to a driving question, a new product, or an individually generated solution to a problem.
You need to know that most people's first attempts don't result in high quality and that revision is a frequent feature of real-world work. In addition to providing direct feedback, I will coach you using rubrics or other sets of criteria to critique one another's work. I can also arrange for experts or adult mentors to provide feedback, which I would hope would be meaningful to you because of the source.
When students present their work to a real audience, they care more about its quality.
Now its our turn!
What are some ideas that you would like us to try this year in the classroom!?
