Experiencing PBL World
By Heather Haufe
Diving into Project Based Learning
When the opportunity arose to go to PBL world I jumped at the occasion to learn how to implement this more effectively. PBL world was an inexplicable experience. No, not because it took place in beautiful Napa California, but because the conference itself opened my eyes to the possibilities in our classrooms. The first thing I learned was that PBL does not have to be a huge life changing project. You can incorporate PBL on a lot smaller scale and it can be just as effective. If you can challenge your students, give them a voice, allow them to continually edit and inquire about something, make the learning visible and public, along with making it purposeful for your student it can be PBL!
