Transcript of Project Based Learning

By: Clio, Heather, Karen Project Based Learning a dynamic approach to teaching in which students explore real-world problems and challenges. With this type of active and engaged learning, students are inspired to obtain a deeper knowledge of the subjects they're studying. What is Project Based Learning? By definition, Project Based Learning Is..... But... What PBL really is.. A meaningful environment which fosters student driven exploration and purposeful skill development with real world application that creates a lasting impact on the learner for today and the future! 2. Design a Plan for the Project 6.Evaluate the Experience 3. Create a Schedule 4. Monitor the Student and the Progress of the Project PBL Process A meaningful environment which fosters student driven exploration and purposeful skill development with real world application ... ... and the future! PBL Biography The most “official application of PBL” was in medical schools. PBL was developed originally as an alternative approach to the education of physicians and first implemented at McMaster School of Medicine in 1969. In the mid 1970’s the School of Nursing adopted PBL in a hybrid curriculum where all the nursing courses were taught using PBL. Medical professionals needed to keep up with new information and always learning is very important to them. Therefore, PBL was perfect for them. Many medical, professional schools, undergraduate and graduate programs use PBL in some form. How are students graded? Specific rubrics vary from project to project, but there are a few things that are the same from project to project. Major Grades The final product of a PBL will typically be a major grade. This grade will usually take the place of a test in that grading period.
Some typical components of the major grade
Peer Evaluation- 10 pt.
Self Evaluation- 10 pt.
Rest of Project- 80 pt. Minor Grades Minor grades are usually either quizzes, checkpoints designated by the teacher, or graded journal entries students are often required to complete each day. Note: This may vary depending on the PBL and teacher. Other Grades Other grades are typically either journal entries or worksheets. However, there are very few of these during a PBL. Teachers Students Teachers also like PBL... Teachers thoughts on PBL How teachers think students benefit from PBL Teachers Concerns about PBL Only they know how they learn best! Students like PBL because... 1. Start with a essential question Example: "How can we use mathematics to design and use a Dobsonian telescope?" Comparison of PBL Where Is PBL? PBL is is everywhere. Many schools across the nation and the globe are switching to the new profound way of learning – PBL. PBL is in schools of all kind, elementary, secondary, college, and universities. PBL is also prominent in real life. Adults do it every day at work; it’s also the founding basis of how many companies run. PBL isn’t only in the USA, it’s everywhere on earth. Recently, PBL has had a big impact on schools in Hong Kong, Central China, Singapore, Austria, and more. But..
this is what PBL

perspectives •It’s a student-centered approach.
•Typically students find it more enjoyable and satisfying.
•It encourages greater understanding.
•Students with PBL experience rate their abilities higher.
•PBL develops lifelong learning skills. •Class attendance increases.
•The method affords more intrinsic reward.
•It encourages students to spend more time studying.
•It promotes interdisciplinary. •It makes student learning a priority.
•It may aid student retention.
•It may be taken as evidence that an
institution values teaching. Example:
Sue- research how to make Dobsonian telescopes
Bob- research Dobsonian design innovations
Jack- research mathematics involved in making a Dobsonian telescope
Sally- research Dobsonian designs Example:
Sally's Conclusion:
"I really liked this project because our group worked hard and got a good grade! I enjoy PBL much better than a regular test!" Divide the assignment up so everyone does some research. Example-
Research- due Jan 6
Rough Draft-due Jan 18
Final Copy- due Jan 29 Make up due dates! ASK QUESTIONS!! Example:
Sally, Sue, Bob, and Jack got a B!
They found out what they did wrong, and asked the teacher about things they didn't understand. Draw Conclusions! And Much Much More....
