February 19, 2013 here at the ESC for Session # 2 Historical Perspectives linked to PBL Socrates (469-399 BCE) Socratic questioning

Locke (1632-1704) the notion that children learn by doing

Dewey (1859-1952) deep learning occurs when students focus their attention, energies, and abilities on solving genuine problems through direct, hands-on experiences

Piaget (1896-1980) learners construct their own understanding through engagement in hands-on learning opportunities, followed by reflection. Paolo Freire (1921-1997) learning that focused on problem-posing and dialogue, lead to critical consciousness

Vygotsky (1896–1934) learners construct knowledge through interactions with their environment.

Seymour Papert (1928 - Present) learning as a reconstruction rather than a transmission of knowledge 2011 -2021 Strategic Plan

Curriculum Design
Assessment and Reporting
Social Emotional Learning District Foundations for PBL Curriculum design
Instructional Institute
UBD / IB Inquiry
Big Ideas, Enduring understandings
Essential questions

Other school districts? PBL – A BC Framework ? Project-Based Learning – Examples Project-Based Learning – Examples PBL - Wise Words Question:
"Don't you think that the teacher should often supply the plan? Take a boy planting corn, for example; think of the waste of land and fertilizer and effort. Science has worked out better plans than a boy can make....

It depends on what you seek. If you wish corn, give the boy a plan. But if you wish boy rather than corn, that is, if you wish to educate the boy to think and plan for himself, then let him make his own plan" (Kilpatrick 1925). Kindergarten Example Physics 12 Example Enduring Understanding Project-Based Learning – Examples Student Engagement

Problem Solving

Critical Thinking



Enduring Understanding

Real World Connections Choice and relevancy = increased student engagement
Active and engaged learning for deep understanding
Better retention of knowledge and skills
Development of 21st C skills in self-direction, collaboration, problem-solving, critical thinking, research and presentation
Greater flexibility and real-world connections Designs 2013 Team Starting the PBL Journey "Where are you starting your journey? What has motivated you to consider new strategies for the classroom? Maybe you're an old hand at project-based instruction, but now you want to incorporate new technologies to reach ambitious instructional goals. Maybe you're a newcomer to the profession, looking for authentic project ideas you can't find in a textbook. Perhaps your school is part of an initiative that is making new technologies available. Or perhaps you're an administrator or technology specialist, working with a team of teachers on improving instruction across a grade level or subject area.

We start with no assumptions about your past experiences, your students' ages or backgrounds, or the technology tools you have available. Regardless of your role or background, we assume only that you are open to new ideas - and that you like learning."
