Looking forward to PBL Australia

Looking forward to PBL Australia

The first ever PBL conference for Australia I think, at least one of this kind and I’m not yet there but have been watching the tweets. Some conferences I’ve been to have very little backchannel happening in the way of people tweeting but already this one is flooding my tweet feed.

  1. The first ever PBL conference for Australia I think, at least one of this kind and I’m not yet there but have been watching the tweets.  Some conferences I’ve been to have very little backchannel happening in the way of people tweeting but already this one is flooding my tweet feed.  So I thought I’d reflect on some of the great tweets so far and what it says about the essence of PBL.
  2. Larry Rosenstock “I love a project where people are in disbelief that a kid did it” #pblaustralia
  3. PBL is about giving students the scope and freedom to express their learning and understanding in ways we don’t dictate.  It’s then that they go the extra mile and produce work that just shocks us and I love that about projects.
  4. Create more, consume less. Similar/Different to ‘production not consumption’ of #pblaustralia Creation for self & others #workingonit #ethos Mon, Nov 11 2013 22:53:34

Production is so much more higher order than consumption is.  We don’t want our students just processing information in a remember and understand way but we want them to use knowledge to produce and create.

  1. Are our students doing work that has value to them? #pblaustralia
  2. LOVE the idea of taking abstract concepts in history and physically manifesting them #pblaustralia
  3. Changing the subject. Exploring through PBL encourages the curriculum to come to life and engage in the community. #pblaustralia Mon, Nov 11 2013 22:34:28
  4. PBL allows us to take the curriculum and make it real life and relevant to students.  We can take concepts and topics in the syllabi and facilitate opportunities for students to use it in their life.
  5. “Develop and defend” – key learning strategy #PBLAustralia Mon, Nov 11 2013 22:56:51
  6. #pblaustralia innovation isn’t tinkering around the edges, it smashing the product and creating an even better product #thought Mon, Nov 11 2013 22:45:04
  7. #pblaustralia Larry Rosenstock. Thank a good teacher. Quality found in collaboration, personalization and engagement Mon, Nov 11 2013 22:51:35
  8. Integrate the world beyond through Fieldwork, Internships and Service Learning! #PBLAustralia Mon, Nov 11 2013 22:31:39
  9. #PBLAustralia technology for production and not consumption Mon, Nov 11 2013 22:43:24

  11. Observation, reflection, public presentation. Another tool for growing constant improvement in education. #pblaustralia Mon, Nov 11 2013 22:39:25
  12. #pblaustralia follow passions by embracing different combinations of learning
  13. ‘The purpose of learning in this century is not to learn it but to transform it’ #PBLAustralia #ACUtech Mon, Nov 11 2013 22:30:48
  14. Content is irrelevant. Reacting to the content is. #pblaustralia Mon, Nov 11 2013 22:29:20
  15. PBL is learning redesigned and redeveloped to allow students to have a voice, to engage in learning in a way that motivates them and gives them the most relevant outcomes.  It also helps them learn 21st century skills and future career-based skills.
