Entering Mrs. Baxter's classroom, you first notice that every child is completely engrossed. Second, you notice the cacophony of voices, rising and falling in intense, animated discussions among small groups of 3rd graders.
Application of Problem-Based Learning in Classroom Activities and Multimedia
Naturally, I was interested in investigating project-based learning PBL for a paper in an independent study course. I discovered that PBL is a pedagogical approach that focuses on learning through experiential learning activities that moves beyond traditional rote memorization. There is evidence that suggests that PBL is an effective method for teaching students complex processes and procedures relating to planning, communication, and problem solving, while increasing student engagement and academic achievement Thomas, , p.
Krajcik and Blumenfeld , p. As I was looking at potentially using elements of these models, there was a problem. It became apparent that I would need to adapt and modify what I found to fit into my own classroom practice.
More recently I came across the work of Min Liu who describes research on project-based approaches in multimedia production. Liu describes a cognitive apprenticeship model where the learners function as multimedia designers in a team environment that focuses on situated learning and cognitive skills through four stages of planning, design, production, and revision which showed encouraging results.
Below is a revised version of my original PBL model for multimedia production that is influenced by the sources as cited above. Prior teaching : students will receive basic instruction on using the computers with an emphasis on multimedia production programs such as iMovie.
They will also receive instruction on the basics of using equipment such as DSLR cameras, microphones, and digital audio recording interfaces. Krajcik, J.

Write a one paragraph summary that would serve as a conclusion to your research findings. Attach it to this sheet. Website Powered by WordPress. Students explore the question by participating in situated inquiry and in a process of problem solving related to the discipline.
Students participate with teachers and community members to engage in collaborative activities to find solutions to the driving question. Throughout the process students are scaffolded with learning technologies. Students create a set of tangible products that address the driving question.
Students explore this question and other related questions with an inquiry process that includes research, interviews, and possibly experiments. This is guided by the teacher and is based on the developmental level and abilities of the students.
Students collaborate with other students, teachers, and experts, to critique and revise their information. This is largely based on the individual context of the school or environment.
Students organize their information using a word document or a graphic organizer. Which includes a section to write a conclusion to summarize their findings. There is an example for this below that could easily be modified. At this time, the recommendation is to create a co-constructed assessment rubric for the project. Students decide on an appropriate medium to create a product or presentation for their information. The medium should be a multimedia production product such as a podcast or video, but this could easily be changed depending on the nature of the class.
Students should write a script, I recommend the two column format for this activity if it is a film, there is an example below. A podcast script could be written in a similar manner to a play. The length should be determined by the teacher as to what is realistically appropriate. Students can take on specific roles such as director, video personality, audio producer, etc.
This would ideally be in a public screening or through posting on the internet. Throughout the project on an ongoing basis projects in process and when completed will be assessed using formative co-constructed assessment rubrics. Either at the start or the mid way point there should be a class discussion where the rubric for assessment will be created. New York: Cambridge Liu, M. This should be something that you want to talk about, research, or teach about.
Write a two-column script. Write sentences of narration for each point. Like this: Like Loading Follow me on Twitter My Tweets. Add your thoughts here Email Required Name Required Website.
Project-based Learning and Multimedia
Project Based Learning PBL is a teaching method in which students learn by actively engaging in real-world and personally meaningful projects. Students work on a project over an extended period of time — from a week up to a semester — that engages them in solving a real-world problem or answering a complex question. They demonstrate their knowledge and skills by creating a public product or presentation for a real audience. As a result, students develop deep content knowledge as well as critical thinking, collaboration, creativity, and communication skills. Project Based Learning unleashes a contagious, creative energy among students and teachers.
A sample of 39 students in two classes was selected purposively from the five classes available in the school. An experimental group comprising 19 students received the instruction by Problem-Based Learning with the project at the end of the lesson while the control group comprising 20 students received the human excretory instruction by using Problem-Based Learning without a project. The data was collected via the pre-test and post-test administration. The results were statistically analyzed using SPSS software by employing an independent t-test. Results indicated that after the one-month treatment period, students in the experimental group have a higher score in the scientific literacy test compared to the students in the control group even it was not significantly different.

Why Is Project-Based Learning Important?
The old-school model of passively learning facts and reciting them out of context is no longer sufficient to prepare students to survive in today's world. Solving highly complex problems requires that students have both fundamental skills reading, writing, and math and 21st century skills teamwork, problem solving, research gathering, time management, information synthesizing, utilizing high tech tools. With this combination of skills, students become directors and managers of their learning process, guided and mentored by a skilled teacher.

Пассажир в очках в тонкой металлической оправе, вглядевшись сквозь стеклянную стену аэровокзала, понял, что прибыл вовремя. Он увидел светловолосую девушку, помогающую Дэвиду Беккеру найти стул и сесть. Беккера, по-видимому, мучила боль. Он еще не знает, что такое настоящая боль, подумал человек в такси. Девушка вытащила из кармана какой-то маленький предмет и протянула его Беккеру.
Он снова посмотрел на Джаббу и закрыл. - Танкадо отдал кольцо с умыслом. Мне все равно, думал ли он, что тучный господин побежит к телефону-автомату и позвонит нам, или просто хотел избавиться от этого кольца. Я принял решение.
