My PBL Life

Life is about projects! Whether we are planning a vacation, creating a budget, renovating the kitchen, or organizing closets… we are constantly moving from one project to the next. Often, we are juggling many projects at once. As you know, I love Project Based Learning. I have found it to be an effective way to engage and empower students.

As we moved into the new year, I started thinking about the various projects I attempted, completed, and failed last year. I wondered how many challenges I tackled and wished I would have documented them in some way. Then it hit me! 2021 was to be the year when I would focus on my own PBL Life!

I don’t want to ever forget the way it feels to be a student and learn new things. So, I am committing myself to writing about all the projects I face during the next 12 months. Some will be small and have a short learning curve, others will be challenging and I am certain will include lots of fails, but through them all I will reflect on the lessons learned.

I am excited about the adventure ahead and will be chatting about some projects I have already completed in the first weeks of 2021. I hope you will join me and share your PBL life too. I will be using #PBLanywhere on Twitter and Instagram as I post new projects. I would love to see your successes and maybe not-so successful attempts also!

Let’s live our best PBL Lives in 2021!

Want students to remember something? Ask them to draw it! Research shows that drawing boosts learning by forcing us to process information in multiple ways.
