Going Deeper with Global PBL Projects

Over the past few months, we have had a number of teachers comment on how challenging it is to go beyond ‘global connections’, and engage their students in authentic global collaboration, exploring and proposing solutions to real-world problems and issues.

While many teachers around the world have become advocates for “project based learning” or “inquiry learning”, we have never really explored this topic in depth through the #globalclassroom chats. Until now.

Guiding Questions:

1) How do we define Project Based / Inquiry Learning? What does it LOOK like? Is there a structure or model you would recommend?

2) What are the key features of a successful PBL global project? What is the teacher’s role? The role of the students?

3) How do you assess global PBL learning? Do students have a say in how they present their learning for assessment?

4) Can you share examples of global PBL projects you’ve participated in or would recommend?
