PROJECT BASED LRNG
This course is for teachers interested in developing effective units of study based on Project Based Learning. In the course, educators will (1) learn the theories and examine models of PBL; (2) investigate how PBL supports student achievement; (3) develop PBL activity which will engage in student learning by doing, creating, thinking and making something that has a meaningful outcome for the student. Students gain a deeper understanding of the concepts and standards at the heart of a project. Projects also build vital workplace skills and lifelong habits of learning. Projects can allow students to address community issues, explore careers, interact with adult mentors, use technology, and present their work to audiences beyond the classroom. PBL can motivate students who might otherwise find school boring or meaningless. You are encouraged to treat this experience as a project with the Driving Question, "How can I design a meaningful and effective project where students learn significant content and build 21st century skills?"
