This topic was very foreign to me. I had never heard of PBL until this blog. So what is it? Can I use it in my classroom? Often times some of the teaching strategies either don't fit into a technology classroom or just are not in my teaching style. However, with a little time and persuasion I can see a need. They are great ways to switch up the classroom and keeps things fresh for the students. No one likes excessive redundancy.
PBL is not new to me, it is just a name that I have never heard or used before. Basically, PBL is shop class, or technology education as they like to call it today. It has been the traditional content area where students are faced with very real problems in which they can apply skills and knowledge while reaching perfomance standards. Such as the 4c's. If you don't know what the 4 c's are go back and read some of my previous posts.
Here is a project that I found online for PBL and technology education.
