Application of project based learning in Science education

30 MINUTES

Dubbed the “new way to teach” by CNN, Project Based Learning (PBL) is a recognised pedagogy that empowers students to engage in deeper, self-directed learning while investigating problems that draw from the real-world.

For all its documented benefits – motivated students, improved outcomes, extended learning opportunities, the perfect alignment between real life and curriculum – the effectiveness of PBL in the classroom ultimately depends on how well it is implemented.

Learn how F-12 STEM educators can lead and successfully implement PBL in their classrooms:

  • What are the key elements of Project Based Learning?
  • What role should teachers play in student-directed learning?
  • Demonstrate one way you could roll out a PBL project in your Year 6-8 science class using Britannica LaunchPacks: Science

Improve Learning for every student

It’s the question that educators have been asking for well over a decade:

In this webinar, we set out to explore the ins and outs of personalised learning, as well as strategies that schools can immediately adopt to start “meeting learners where they are.”

  • What is personalised learning and what is all the fuss about?
  • To implement it effectively, what are the key elements of personalised learning that we should know?
  • Adjustments
  • How can LaunchPacks be used to empower students and teachers to differentiate learning more effectively?
