Project-Based Learning Using Disney Movies

I came across several articles where individuals had used the classic tales animated by Walt Disney to encourage student learning. After thinking on this I had an epiphany: What if I could have students use their historical knowledge gained throughout the course to pick out the inaccuracies in Disney films? This had the potential to be an interesting project for students to explore a movie of their choosing and develop a polished presentation to teach their peers about the selected time period and region.

Reviewing Group Member Contributions

Students often complain that some group members contribute too much (dominating the discussion to the detriment of the group) or too little (shy students or those who do not pull their weight). Often, too, they don’t feel comfortable raising issues associated with group contributions, instead finding it easier to just take on the extra workload. Despite the fact that inequity of contribution can have a significant impact on the groups’ overall experience and the final products of group work, problems of this nature are often only discussed at the completion of the group task or project.

Tutorial FLIPPED CLASSROOM: caricare presentazioni online. 1.4 Five keys for PBL. I started teaching (long time ago) using simply voice, blackboard and chalk. But, almost without realizing it, I found myself trying to involve my students in more concrete ways: it was always unplugged activities, because the technology had not yet entered in the school. I always tried to alternate the lesson "explained" with the answers of the students, with the subsidiary class and, finally, with the production of objects or products that could involve pupils at the same time helping them to internalize content and skills, and create the skills .

Only in recent years I have been able to exploit the potential of technology to enhance this approach, especially in a school time that allowed me to work simultaneously with other colleagues in the same class (what in Italy was called "extended time").
