Five Keys to Rigorous Project-Based Learning Voiceover: How will today’s children function in a dangerous world? What means will they use to carve the future? Will they be equipped to find the answers to tomorrow’s problems? Teacher: When you think about traditional learning you think of a student sitting in a classroom and being talked at. Teacher: Now I imagine a lot of you are still thinking... Teacher: They are supposed to be a sponge. Peggy Ertmer: So there are a lot of different ways to approach PBL, a lot of different ways to implement it, but really it all boils down to five essential keys: real-world connection, core to learning, structured collaboration, student driven, and multifaceted assessment. Student: One of the problems in the ocean is that with the higher amount of CO2 calcifying organisms are decreasing and we’re testing to see how well life in the ocean lives without calcifying organisms. Student: --four by eight feet. Peggy Ertmer: So the second commonality is the PBL unit provides academic rigor. Student: Yes.

PDF Buddy | Online PDF Editor CASES Online: Creating Active Student Engagement in the Sciences What is CASES Online? CASES Online is a collection of inquiry-based lessons to engage K-12 and undergraduate students in exploring the science behind real-world problems. Through CASES, you can transform your students into motivated investigators, self-directed and life-long learners, critical thinkers and keen problem solvers. Our cases are grounded in Problem-Based Learning (PBL), Investigative Case-Based Learning (ICBL), and related student-centered pedagogies. What's new in CASES Online? Materials for over 350 cases are now posted and we are continually working to publish more. CASES Online is a proud member of the Science Case Network, which supports science educators, learners, researchers, developers and professional organizations, furthering access and development of the use of cases and PBL in science education. Search CASES Online Search tips: Searching by Keyword alone is best (and is not case-sensitive) since many cases can work across disciplines and grade levels.

Project Planner | MyPBLWorks Start planning your next PBL project with confidence, using this step-by-step form as your guide. Why is a project planner important? When you’re ready to design a project for your classroom, it’s helpful to have a framework to capture your ideas and organize your plans. A Gold Standard PBL unit has a lot of pieces to plan: your goals for student learning, entry event and driving question, major product(s) students will create, daily lessons, and more. It’s also a good idea for a school to use a common framework for PBL unit planning, so teachers can collaborate using the same language, and share projects more easily with colleagues. So we’ve created a Project Planner to support you in the planning process. The Project Planner has five parts: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

The Techie Teacher: and a Research FREEBIE My last post, Internet Research for Grades 3-5, got me thinking about research skills in the younger grades. It is a hard skill to hit at that age, especially for those children who have not developed the literacy skills needed to learn new material. Our school district has a subscription to PebbleGo which is an incredible site for research and listening to readings. Another way I have included research skills in the younger grades is by using Brief.lys. is a free online service that allows you to combine multiple websites/urls into a single url. You can create a collection of videos, images, and appropriate websites for children to access with just one click! Here is an example of a I created about the Water Cycle: This is what it looks like: Super easy to use and a great way to touch upon research skills with the younger ones by finding easy to read websites and other age appropriate resources!

As a result, paintings can be good resources for learning about ecology. Teachers can use this lesson to examine with students the interrelationship of geography, natural resources, and climate and their effects on daily life. Il Problem-Based Learning dalla pratica alla teoria Abstract Il Problem-based learning (apprendimento basato su un problema) è un metodo di insegnamento centrato sull’allievo in cui un problema costituisce il punto di inizio del processo di apprendimento. Esso presenta numerose e significative differenze con la formazione tradizionale. Che cos’è il Problem-Based Learning In molti di noi, la parola “problema” fa affiorare ricordi scolastici non sempre piacevoli. Il PBL in pratica Un problema è presentato ad un piccolo gruppo di allievi e discusso con loro. Il ruolo delle tecnologie Le tecnologie informatiche e telematiche possono svolgere diversi ruoli in un ambiente di apprendimento di tipo problem-based. Come si noterà, fra questi risultati c’è un miglioramento delle cosiddette “competenze trasversali”, legate alle capacità di diagnosi, di relazione e di costruzione di strategie, e delle competenze di “lifelong learning”. Secondo Savery e Duffy (2001) il PBL è in linea con i seguenti principi didattici derivabili del costruttivismo: 1.

Twenty Ideas for Engaging Projects The start of the school year offers an ideal time to introduce students to project-based learning. By starting with engaging projects, you'll grab their interest while establishing a solid foundation of important skills, such as knowing how to conduct research, engage experts, and collaborate with peers. In honor of Edutopia's 20th anniversary, here are 20 project ideas to get learning off to a good start. 1. Flat Stanley Refresh: Flat Stanley literacy projects are perennial favorites for inspiring students to communicate and connect, often across great distances. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20.

Koulun arki ansaitsee äänensä kuuluville | Kuluneen viikon töiden reflektointi auttaa niin opettajaa kuin opiskelijaakin kehittään osaamistaan. Tiedätkö miten kollegasi työviikko meni? Missä hän onnistui ja minkä olisi voinut tehdä toisin? Tai millainen oli juuri sinun työviikkosi tällä kertaa? Haastamme Suomen koulut tekemään viikkokatsauksia, joissa reflektoidaan työviikon kulkua, ja jakamaan nämä mietteet toisille. Suomalainen työ ja yrittäjyys kaipaavat arvonnostoa. Bhosen ajatuksia soveltaen Siilinjärven lukion historian ja yhteiskuntaopin opettaja Aira Roivainen alkoi miettiä, miksei koulujen henkilökunnan, rehtoreiden, opettajien ja opinto-ohjaajien, sekä opiskelijoiden onnistumisia ja työskentelyn karikoita voisi käsitellä samoin. Tottumus reflektioon olisi Roivaisen mielestä mainio työkalu opettajan ammatillisessa kasvussa. – Oman toiminnan arviointi on aivan keskeinen osa kehittyvää koulua ja oppivaa opettajaa. – Oppiminen on itsessään mielettömän hauskaa, ei sitä tarvitse erikseen hauskuuttaa. Anna koulun arjelle ääni!
