Workshop session 2 – Tuesday 11:30-13:00

 

Workshop title Presenters Short Description When
PBL – Project Based Learning in eTwinning Schools Irene Pateraki, CSS Project Based Learning (PBL) is an effective teaching method in which students gain knowledge and skills by working for an extended period of time to investigate and respond to a complex question, a real-world problem, or challenge. Today’s students often find school to be boring and meaningless. In PBL, students are active, not passive; a project engages their hearts and minds, and provides real-world relevance for learning. In the 21st century workplace, success requires more than basic knowledge and skills. In PBL, students not only understand content more deeply but also learn how to take responsibility and build confidence, solve problems, work collaboratively, communicate ideas, develop critical 21-st century learning skills and be creative innovators. Project‐based learning has ‘shown to be more effective than traditional methods for teaching maths, economics, language, science, and other disciplines’ (Beckett & Miller, 2006). An eTwinning School can work towards this direction and create the environment and materials that will engage students in learning and help them become 21st century citizens.
