Project-Based Learning Workshop Activities
Now that you've established the basics of PBL, you're ready for part two. On this page, you will find a wide range of activities that will get workshop participants thinking and talking about PBL. 1. Before watching a set of videos that demonstrate PBL at work, ask participants, "What questions do you have about good PBL projects that might be answered by looking carefully at a video of students working on a project?" Suggest that participants view the videos shown with particular questions in mind. 2. Choose a video from the following list to share with class participants, based on their grade level interest. After a brief small-group discussion and reflection, engage the larger group of participants in conversation about what they saw. "What steps did the students take to work on their project?"" Ask participants, "What do the experts have to say about the effectiveness of PBL activities?" 4. Ask participants, "What makes a project a good one?" In the What Is PBL About? 7.

Utilización en la teleformación del método de proyectos La flexibilización de las estructuras docentes implica nuevas concepciones del proceso de enseñanza y aprendizaje en las que se acentúa la implicación activa del alumno en el proceso de aprendizaje; la atención a las destrezas emocionales e intelectuales a distintos niveles; la preparación de los jóvenes para asumir responsabilidades en un mundo en rápido y constante cambio, y la flexibilidad de los estudiantes para entrar en un mundo laboral que demandará formación a lo largo de toda la vida. Esto lo hemos descrito reiteradamente al hablar de educación flexible reclamando nuevas estrategias didácticas en contextos de teleformación (Salinas, 1997; Cabero, 2002). Fue en 1918, cuando W.H.

Reflection in the Learning Process, Not As An Add On Is it personality? Are some people born with it? Can it be learned? I am talking about REFLECTION. At the beginning of the week, I had the opportunity to be part of a workshop during our pre-service ( we just returned from our summer break here in the Southern Hemisphere) with our ES Principal, MS Principal and HS Assistant Principal. The following ESSENTIAL QUESTIONS emerged out of the planning for this workshop How does student reflection impact student learning? Reflection is a meaning making process that moves a learner from one experience into the next with deeper understanding of its relationships with and its connections to other experiences and ideas.Reflection is a systematic, rigorous way of thinking, with its roots in scientific inquiry.Reflection needs to happen in community, in interaction with othersReflection requires attitudes that value the personal and intellectual growth of oneself and others. I know that most teachers acknowledge the role of reflection in learning. 26.
