I agree with you in the terms you explain but I think you show a very negative description of what a "project" is. I think a project could be a useful tool in a class. Projects have some weak points comparing to a PBL like significant content, teacher guidance and voice and choice from the students.

@kantabria I see your point. The danger that I'm trying to emphasize is in believing you are using PBL (doing projects in order to learn) and doing projects (showing what you have learned by creating a product). Thanks for brining my attention to the issue. I will definitely think more about what you said :-)

The Center for STEM Education and Research at UT Dallas offers an intense PBL summer institute called STEP in STEM. Experience PBL for 2 weeks as a student and teachers! Check it out - www.utdcser.org

I'm a tech teacher, new to the world of PBL. Assessment is my stumbling block. And planning. Your comment that the teacher work takes place in the beginning..... I think that's where I need help. Thanks for the chart. Pinned and tweeted. :)

My partner and i accept a person within the conditions a person clarify yet I do think a person show an exceptionally digital tickets maker online damaging information involving what "project" is actually. I do think a task is a valuable application in a very category. Projects have some disadvantages looking at with a PBL such as substantial content, tutor advice as well as style as well as alternative from your individuals.
