Project-Based Learning Professional Development Guide
The project-based learning professional development guide from Edutopia.org can be used for a two- to three-hour session or expanded for a one- to two-day workshop, and it is divided into two parts. The first part is a general overview of project-based learning, and the second part is specific to project-based learning.
Part one is a guided procedure that is intended to provide participants with a brief introduction to project-based learning (PBL) and to provide answers to the questions that they may have. What is the significance of PBL? What is the purpose of PBL, and how does PBL function?
Readings and tasks for experiential PBL are assigned in part two of the course. In an ideal situation, the activities will be completed through group collaboration and the use of technological tools. These activities are described in detail in the section under “Workshop Activities.” You will also discover links to video examples of project-based learning (PBL) in action at the elementary, middle, and high school levels, courtesy of the Edutopia.org video library.

The migration of butterflies is followed by the students: Teacher Frances Koontz displays a symbolic butterfly that was donated to her class by youngsters in Mexico.
Examples of session schedules can be found on the Resources for PBL page, as well as a PowerPoint presentation (with presenter notes), which can be viewed immediately from the website or downloaded for use in a stand-alone slide show. In this part, you will also find recommended websites, books, and more videos that will help you learn more about PBL.
In this book, we will discuss many of the National Educational Technology Standards (NETS), which were developed by the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE).
