Tech Learning TL Advisor Blog and Ed Tech Ticker Blogs from TL Blog Staff – TechLearning.com 0 Comments May 8, 2009 By: Tech Learning Blog Staff May 8 Written by: 5/8/2009 12:42 AM ShareThis Project Based Learning (PBL) is a great way to teach students content, 21st century skills, and engage them in something fun and educational. First of all, PBL can be used in any classroom, in any subject, at any grade level. PBL does take planning. For instance, I teach physics and developed a project for my classes on structures and stress and strain. Another example of PBL is having the students research a topic and present it to the rest of the class through a multimedia presentation, website, or poster. Start small. Another idea for projects is to look at your school or community and see what they need. An idea I got from my wife (a Biology Education student) is to have students create a lesson for other students about a topic. PBL offers teachers a new way to have their students learn content as well as 21st century skills. Some web resources to get you started:
