Project based (meaningful) learning design for K12 education
Aims & goals:
Rethink the role of school, learning and educators
Understand project based learning
Distinguish between project based learning vs doing projects for learning
Experience and experiment tools and mindsets to define, design and deliver new forms of powerful education
Exchange experiences with peers to foster the development of a community of practice
Set the need: reflections on education, learning and innovation. Why do schools need to change and what does that mean for teachers and learners?
Set the stage: project based learning - shaping a vision, creating a culture and cultivating life long learning in others
Design the learning: tools and resources to design meaningful, experimental and experiential learning experiences and spaces
Facilitate the learning: do´s and dont´s of a learning facilitator (in place, while visiting a real-life project based school)
“We do not learn from experience... we learn from reflecting on experience” John Dewey on Experiential Learning
“Deliver education that is authentic and opportunistic in nature, experimental and real in praxis. All else is rudimentary.” Simon Kavanagh on Learning Design
Project Based Learning (PBL) is a teaching method in which students learn by actively engaging in real-world and personally meaningful projects
The course is designed as an immersive experience - a learning journey supported by a real project based learning school. The learning process will foster an effective personal and professional transformation. The course includes a visit to a school (www.schole.pt) where project-based learning is in place.
