@HeidiHutchison @krivett1 Have either of you used PBL much with your classes? #globalclassroom
HeidiHutchison
11:09:27
@bhallowes @krivett1 Yes! I did the #Malala Project on #globalclassroom wiki. Loved doing it! Just went to #PBLWorld in Napa!

@bhallowes @HeidiHutchison #globalclassroom we use inquiry learning and authentic learning problems in all of our integrated learning models

Doing something called #plsm13 Baltimore October 5th! An unconference on PBL of sorts. #globalclassroom http://t.co/nnOP6CfuoC

11:12:02
For me the 8 Essentials BIE uses are what makes PBL-the DQ and st.s Need to Know list #globalclassroom

@HeidiHutchison A swap meet sounds a bit like a TeachMeet. Such a great way for teachers to grow. #globalclassroom Gives one confidence.

@bhallowes Yes or an Edcamp but just for PBL! Thanks to @BiancaH80 and @waginski in Sydney right now maybe at the pb chat?! #globalclassroom

11:15:09
I have used PBL after training with ThinkQuest, Intel and Microsoft Peer Coaching. Would love to have integrated classroom. #globalclassroom
HeidiHutchison
11:16:16
How do we conduct a global PBL? Does everyone have to do it exactly the same? Same DQ at least?#globalclassroom #pblchat #plsm13
HeidiHutchison
11:17:05
I have idea for global PBL using The One and Only Ivan! DQ: Do we have the right to capture and cage animals. #globalclassroom #pblchat
HeidiHutchison
11:17:45
@bhallowes What defines PBL for you? #globalclassroom
bhallowes
11:18:43
@HeidiHutchison #globalclassroom Yes, real world problem. I love the #TravellingRhinos project. Deals with poaching. #globalclassroom
bhallowes
11:19:43
@HeidiHutchison #globalclassroom For me PBL is real world problem solving using 21st century skills like critical thinking and collab.
HeidiHutchison
11:20:11
@bhallowes Awesome project! That will go on for a long time! Still going on now! Yes, real world, authentic audience! #globalclassroom
HeidiHutchison
11:21:01
Do you think an online global PBL can happen? #globalclassroom Is it possible? Need same driving question?
bhallowes
11:21:34
@HeidiHutchison I teach 7 - 9 year olds. They learned so much about rhino project and presented to the whole school. #globalclassroom
krivett1
11:22:47
#globalclassroom we were part of travelling rhinos project and it was awesome! Class loved being part of something purposeful in the world
HeidiHutchison
11:22:52
@bhallowes Really you presented to the world! I took part in the Global Webinar and many teachers learned about that! #globalclassroom
bhallowes
11:23:12
@HeidiHutchison #globalclassroom There are so many tools for online PBL. Skype is great but there are also blogs and wikis, voicethread....

Q: What are key features of global PBL? Teacher's and students role? #globalclassroom #pblchat
bhallowes
11:24:41
@HeidiHutchison It seems there are so many global problems. We are in the right age for global online PBL learning. #globalclassroom
HeidiHutchison
11:25:49
Yes! I think there probably always have been. Teacher's role is to be guide, provide scaffold...#globalclassroom

@krivett1 What was the travelling rhinos project? Sounds interesting #globalclassroom
bhallowes
11:27:13
@HeidiHutchison #globalclassroom Teacher is facilitator, uses standards, scaffolds and poses questions or gets kids to ask questions.

@Oddizzi Hi welcome to the chat. So glad you can join us. What is your understanding of PBL? #globalclassroom
HeidiHutchison
11:29:36
@bhallowes Teacher poses question thru engagement activity which could last more than a day. Sometimes kids need more help.#globalclassroom
bhallowes
11:31:32
@HeidiHutchison Engagement is key. Our winning ThinkQuest project started visit to game park. Can I be a good tour guide? #globalclassroom
Oddizzi
11:32:23
@bhallowes PBL also enables students to gain a deeper understanding of a subject #globalclassroom
Oddizzi
11:32:52
@bhallowes Thanks. Many of the schools we speak to are involved in PBL. We think it makes schools more like real life. #globalclassroom
krivett1
11:33:37
@Oddizzi @bhallowes #globalclassroom and to choose their own learning pathways based in their own q's and curiosities
bhallowes
11:34:39
#globalclassroom Our kids have also participated in Flat Friends proj. Not strictly PBL but builds relationship for future. #globalclassroom
HeidiHutchison
11:34:51
@Oddizzi @bhallowes Yes-so important for kids to try on different hats taking role of architect, biologist, doc, etc. #globalclassroom
HeidiHutchison
11:35:57
@krivett1 @Oddizzi @bhallowes I really agree that st.s creating their own questions is KEY! Comes from within, from them. #globalclassroom
bhallowes
11:36:48
@HeidiHutchison #globalclassroom I love it when kids realise that there's no such thing as a stupid question.
Oddizzi
11:36:59
@HeidiHutchison @bhallowes Agree - they learn so much more that way and can choose their own direction which is so powerful #globalclassroom
HeidiHutchison
11:37:51
@Oddizzi @bhallowes Tough for teachers to let go of control sometimes. Goes against our own experience of school. lol #globalclassroom
Oddizzi
11:38:00
@HeidiHutchison @krivett1 @bhallowes It also demonstrates to the teacher what they are truly interested in, a good insight #globalclassroom
bhallowes
11:38:29
@HeidiHutchison Agree. We love to ask the questions - usually closed. :-) #globalclassroom
HeidiHutchison
11:38:39
@Oddizzi @krivett1 @bhallowes This is where great assessment can come from. St.s need to help with assessment. #globalclassroom
bhallowes
11:39:27
@HeidiHutchison absolutely agree. Get them to help draw up rubrics. They love it. #globalclassroom
Oddizzi
11:39:51
@HeidiHutchison @bhallowes Agree - but a creative teacher should be able to control the flow and encourage their thoughts #globalclassroom
Oddizzi
11:41:06
@HeidiHutchison @krivett1 @bhallowes Absolutely - surely this assessment is one of the most valuable #globalclassroom
HeidiHutchison
11:41:15
@Oddizzi @bhallowes Talk more about "control the flow" #globalclassroom
bhallowes
11:41:23
#globalclassroom Q4 Can you share any more examples of projects you've participated in?
bhallowes
11:43:22
@Oddizzi I'd be interested to know if you mean the flow of questions or the flow of student thinking. #globalclassroom
HeidiHutchison
11:43:52
@bhallowes http://t.co/VXCRMTJtzE Check out the other classroom pages! So fun! So meaningful! #globalclassroom
Oddizzi
11:44:26
@bhallowes Flow of the questions! I wouldn't want to control the students thinking #globalclassroom
HeidiHutchison
11:45:21
@Oddizzi @bhallowes Yes, sorting through questions and gentle direction of where to go! Yes. :) #globalclassroom
bhallowes
11:46:06
@HeidiHutchison I remember this now. Great project and a real world one indeed. #globalclassroom
