Successfully Facilitating Project Based Learning
Even if you have never heard about all the research showing the effectiveness of project-based learning, it’s not hard to figure out that it is a far more engaging way to learn than through traditional methods. What’s not to love about engaging with a real-life problem or question and applying content knowledge and connections to various disciplines to solve it?
But, if you have never facilitated the project based learning process, you may be a little unsure of yourself. Also, most new teachers make the mistake of “doing projects” instead of facilitating project based learning. To help you out, we are sharing a graphic that displays the project based learning process, and one that explains the difference between just “doing projects” and project based learning. I hope this helps. Let us know how your student’s projects turn out. Take lots of pictures.
