LEARNING ABOUT PBL
Thanks to a European Mooc platform- http://www.schooleducationgateway.eu/it/pub/teacher_academy.htm
I could do an interesting course online in June and July this year. I had come across it by chance and I realized that I should learn more about the best practices which are needed in today's classes.
This is my learning Diary : we were asked to write about it every week and to work on our project. We shared ideas and discussed as developing PBL requires a lot of planning and information about what we want to achieve.
We used new tools and we learnt a lot as we shared ideas and information about PBL.
At the end of the Mooc I could get a certificate and the badges for doing all the activities in the four weeks.
The activities were engaging and really interesting and provided tips for anyone who is new to PBL. Teachers from different parts of the world took part in the MOOC. We worked on peer assessment and we could see and share our projects.
You can find here the Twitter hashtag for the four weeks where the tutors and the teachers involved in the MOOC could learn together Tweet riguardo #PBLcourse
What I have learnt :
- PBL requires planning, thinking and a group of teachers who share ideas about the best ways for guiding and helping the students
- Students can learn a lot by working together and by approaching learning in a different way
- Learning can happen without a face-to-face approach if we
rely on the students and their engagement.
