“Isn’t Problem Based Learning easier than Project Based Learning?” and 10 other myths about PrBL. (“Real or not real”) | emergent math. About a year ago, I started advocating and pushing towards a Problem Based approach in mathematics, as opposed to a solely Project Based approach, which many/most of my peers currently employ. But before we go any further, let’s better parse the differences between Project- (PBL) and Problem-Based Learning (PrBL). I realize that different people define and implement Problem and Project Based learning wildly differently. Some things I would define as problems, others would define as projects, and vice versa. So here’s what I mean by Problem and Project Based Learning: Pick your favorite diagram. Figure 1. Figure 2. Figure 3 (sorry for the word- and acronym-slaw in this one). The primary differences are size, scope, and end product.

Here are some misconceptions about Problem Based Learning. “Problem Based Learning represents a step back in giving students authentic mathematical experiences.” Not real. “Problem Based Learning is easier to facilitate than PBL.” Not real. Not real. Sort of real. Draft%20PISA%202015%20Collaborative%20Problem%20Solving%20Framework%20. Resources like 'Project Based Teaching Rubric' Designprob. Problem Based Learning In Medical Education.
