The PBL Playbook

The PBL Playbook

You’ve started using PBL in your classroom, and you are committed to doing it. You’re even on the lookout for ways to improve your PBL practice and engage your students. However, you’re probably facing some barriers and obstacles in moving forward. We get it! We are PBL facilitators currently in the classroom, and we have gone through similar PBL trials and failures. We’re ready to use our own experiences and those of the PBL community to help you tackle your problems and offer tools to overcome the hurdles along your journey. We’re calling you to spread the PBL revolution, develop confidence in your own practice, and talk about it with others. You can stay sitting on the bench or you can use the strategies of other PBL teachers who have gone through some of the same problems and come out on top. The PBL Playbook is meant to help you navigate your PBL questions and problems, build your PBL confidence, and add strategies for success to your own playbook!... Show More

In this episode, Josh and Andrea sit down with Dave Ross (@DavidPBLRoss), a Global Education Consultant to discuss what we are calling "21st Century Skills." What are they? How do we integrate them into our curriculum? And most importantly, how do we assess them? In this installment of the series on assessment in PBL, our hosts and their guest address just that. At 2:53, they define 21st century skills and discuss why it is so important to integrate these into curriculum and assess them. At 7:34, they talk about 21st century skills within the context of the PBL classroom and what it looks like to weave this assessment within the PBL framework. At 10:38, they try to find the balance of assessing 21st century skills and classroom content, and how to design a project to elicit particular skills. At 14:53, Dave Ross leaves our veteran PBL teachers with a challenge to take their assessment to the next level. For tips and resources on PBL rubrics, check out the Magnify Learning Resources page.
