Blog Assignment #9 What Can Teachers and Students Teach Us About Project Based Learning?

The  source of material on Project Based Learning with the students and teachers that are using this method of learning, completely eliminates the traditional method of teaching. Reports of students using collaborative methods, critical thinking, and technology in PBL along with the students having a say in the learning process, encourages both students and teachers to become engaged in whatever the project consists of. The students are guided to ask questions about whatever the project is and from there do a real life search for themselves that might involve something in their community to get answers. Project Based Learning informs students that others will be tracking their work also. This is a factor that makes students want to do good work, knowing others will be looking at their projects. Creativity is another strong factor for this new method of keeping our students not only interested but engaged in the learning process. Peer editing and revising are the perfecting of the brainstorming ideas that created the project, a part where the student presents a more clearer view of the project, Teachers monitor the students project and offers advice when needed. This out of the listening to lecture and lets create what is being lectured produces more comprehension of what is trying to be taught.
