This post is part of the #EdublogsClub – a group of educators and edtech enthusiasts that blog around a common theme each week. Simply write a post and share it to join in, or sign up to receive email reminders of each new prompt. 

Problem-based learning and project-based learning allow students to learn about a topic by solving an open-ended problem without a defined answer. There are some similarities between “project-based” and “problem-based” learning, and for the purposes of this prompt, we’ll sort of use them interchangeably.

While problem-based learning can allow for active learning and help kids gain skills in both critical thinking, collaboration, and independent learning, it can also require more resources, planning, and can feel frustrating for teachers.

Prompt: Write a post that discusses using problem-based or project-based learning in the classroom.

Have you had your students complete open-ended projects or answer open-ended questions? Share your experiences, lesson plans, student work, or reasons why you haven’t yet. We can’t wait to hear about it!

Happy blogging!
