Implementing Project-Based Learning in At-Home Environments
How the Accessibility of Project-Based Learning Benefits Distance Learners
Project-based learning (PBL), a pedagogy that encourages students to engage in real-world and personally meaningful projects, has long been considered by educators and district administrators alike as an effective way to teach STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) subjects.
Due to the need for districts across the country to provide hybrid and distance learning programs to fight the spread of COVID-19, it might at first seem impractical to implement PBL under these conditions. However, one of the key benefits of implementing a PBL strategy is its ability to align and adapt to the needs and interests of individual students.
This paper examines the effectiveness of PBL when applied to distance learning programs. Highlights include:
- Reasons why PBL gives students a sense of security and comfort.
- Tips on how to make PBL accessible to all students.
- A list of recommended common household materials for PBL.
