First, we discussed the gold standard of problem based learning and how to could adapt a project we already have to make it PBL. By adapting a project we already do, it will be more manageable to accomplish this year.
Main Points of Gold Standard PBL
- Challenging problem
- Sustained inquiry
- Student Voice and Choice
- Critique and Revision
- Public Product
Second, we spent time individually looking at http://bie.org/about. The BIE website includes a description, examples of projects and resources.
