Drawing from resources made available by the Buck Institute for Education, Edutopia, and from our own experience facilitating inquiry-driven learning at MNSA and at Vance Elementary, we put together an action-packed introduction to PBL.
It was exciting to watch light bulbs go off among the educators in the room as we demonstrated how profoundly effective the approach is in getting students engaged, collaborating, applying critical thinking skills, and working on issues that are authentically relevant to them. By the end of the day, each teacher had not only the beginnings of a plan for a project that will activate their students’ curiosity and challenge them to think creatively and cooperate with their classmates, but, perhaps more importantly, the teachers themselves had their curiosity and interest piqued and left the training feeling inspired and activated.
