Get Students Engaged with PBL

Want your students to be engaged in their learning while also being self-motivated to learn more?  Why not try PBL or Project Based Learning?  Project Based Learning is a comprehensive approach to instruction in which students have a deeper understanding of the concepts being taught.  Where to start you ask?

1. Pick a unit or concept you would be comfortable allowing the students to work collaboratively in groups to support their learning
2. Develop a driving question or problem the students will have to solve.
3. Create a rubric or guideline for the students so they know what is expected of them before getting started.
4. Give them various tools/choices to create their final project.
5. Actively monitor their learning/process.

Interested but still not sure where to start, contact your campus Instructional Technology Specialist or check out for PBL ideas.
