Apprendimento Basato sul Progetto (Project Based Learning): Apprendere dalle Esperienze

Apprendimento Basato sul Progetto (Project Based Learning): Apprendere dalle Esperienze
Cos’è il project based learning? Il PBL è un approccio all’insegnamento che pone maggiormente l’accento sull’apprendimento da esperienze complesse, orientate verso il raggiungimento di uno scopo o di un obiettivo specifico, al contrario dell’approccio accademico tradizionale che promuove la memorizzazione meccanica di molteplici nozioni alienate dai loro usi concreti nel mondo reale. L’obiettivo che si pone il PBL è quello di fornire alle giovani generazioni gli strumenti mentali necessari per far fronte alla complessa e mutevole natura dell’economia basata sull’informazione che dovranno prepararsi ad affrontare. La scuola ti ha mai insegnato come verificare, dubitare e mettere in discussione ogni fonte di informazione? Nelle aule attuali, gli studenti lavorano a compiti semplici in cui è importante innanzitutto la memorizzazione di brevi definizioni; lavorano da soli, scrivono solo per l’insegnante, e raramente fanno delle presentazioni. Le competenze di cui si parla sono: Conclusioni Related:  classi flipped e scomposte ;)

flipped classroom repository - raccolta di unità di apprendimento liberamente condivise dagli insegnanti Home | PBL La flipped classroom non è una moda! | docentiattenti Il fatto che ultimamente se ne parli così tanto potrebbe indurre a pensare che si tratti solo di una delle stravaganti tendenze in ambito educativo che di tanto in tanto approdano qui da qualche paese straniero dove – peraltro – il sistema scolastico risulta profondamente diverso dal nostro come altrettanto diversa è la società e le persone che la compongono. Ebbene, questa volta non è così! E’ vero, la flipped classroom viene dall’America, dagli Stati Uniti per la precisione, e l’hanno “inventata” una decina di anni fa due insegnanti di chimica di un liceo del Colorado, Jonathan Bergmann e Aaron Sams. Preoccupati dall’alto tasso di assenteismo tra i loro alunni, ma soprattutto stanchi del tradizionale ciclo “lezione frontale + verifica” ripetuto monotonamente nelle loro classi – peraltro con una materia notoriamente poco “seducente” come la chimica – Sams e Bergmann si sono interrogati su come “vivacizzare” le proprie lezioni e rendere più attivi e partecipi i propri studenti.

The “Edible Car” Teaches Us that STEM is about Problem-Solving Recently, I watched “The Edible Car.” In this project, youth engineer a wacky solution to a fun, engaging question — “How can I build a vehicle out of every-day items?” This gets youth involved in STEM activities & principles. It seems perfect for OST programming because there are no scientists, engineers, techies or math pro leading this project. There are no lab coats or experiment kits. It became clear then that STEM is not about being a scientist or engineer who needs a laboratory. PBL, high-quality STEM, and the scientific method all start with a question that addresses a problem. What comes in between the driving question and culminating product/event are activities that emphasize strong critical thinking and problem solving skills. In the Edible Car Project, this happens when the youth figure out what they need to make a mock car, what principles might make the car move better or faster, and how they will try their new ideas. by: Tyler Richendollar Like this: Like Loading...

Tomorrow's Learning Today: 7 Shifts To Create A Classroom Of The Future Tomorrow’s Learning Today: 7 Shifts To Create A Classroom Of The Future by Terry Heick For professional development around this idea or others you read about on TeachThought, contact us. Let’s take a look at this vague idea of the ‘classroom of the future.’ This is all subjective, but it’s worth talking about. Below are some ideas that are truly transformational–not that they haven’t been said before. And the best part? But therein lies the rub: Tomorrow’s learning is already available, and below are seven of the most compelling and powerful trends, concepts, and resources that represent its promise. The Challenge of Implementation It’s challenging enough to manage a traditional learning environment where the curriculum is handed to you, and meetings are set, and you’re simply there to manage; adding more ingredients to the mix seems like asking for trouble. None of it is really complicated—it just requires new thinking. Tomorrow’s Learning Today: 7 Shifts Of Future Learning 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

What is PBL? To help teachers do PBL well, we created a comprehensive, research-based model for PBL — a "gold standard" to help teachers, schools, and organizations to measure, calibrate, and improve their practice. In Gold Standard PBL, projects are focused on student learning goals and include Essential Project Design Elements: About Us There is a lot of video on YouTube. To give you an idea of how fast it is growing in two days of uploads it would take more than a decade to view all the video. YouTube also boasts over 700,000 educational videos in its EDU channel. While this leads to a lot of opportunity it can also be very overwhelming. We made creating a class on Teachem so simple it only take 30 seconds to get started. We believe teachem can do the same for teaching as blogging did for publishing. Best of all, it's free.

Garden-Based Learning Schools and community gardens are living classrooms with great potential for learning. In How to Grow a School Garden, Arden Buck-Sporer and Rachel Kathleen Pringle cite the following: Numerous studies point to school gardens as a means of improving academic achievement, promoting healthy lifestyles, demonstrating the principles of stewardship, encouraging community and social development, and instilling a sense of place. In addition, gardens are places where students can connect with global issues through the natural resources of earth, advance community development efforts through neighborhood beautification, and leave their green-print in our ecosystem. Below are practical, feasible ideas for you to begin growing these benefits in your community. Academic Enrichment A study from Rutgers Cooperative Extension, Learning Through the Garden, shows that gardens can function as living laboratories. Here are some activity examples that could be used in a gardening unit: Program Management

54 Flipped Classroom Tools For Teachers And Students - 54 Flipped Classroom Tools For Teachers And Students by TeachThought Staff The flipped classroom has continued to enjoy momentum years after its introduction, speaking to its flexible nature, and to the need for a real change in thinking in how we think of time and space in education. Technology has been, more than anything else, the catalyst for the flipped movement. With YouTube now nearly as ubiquitous as the television in many homes, access to video content is more seamless than ever. Further, teachers have taken advantage of not just video channels but a collective video literacy to realize the potential of flipping the classroom. Below is a list 54 flipped classrooms tools for teachers and students–both equally important because in a flipped classroom, both teachers and students are consistently interacting with technology, often independently and asynchronously. 54 Flipped Classroom Tools For Teachers And Students
