    Activity 3: Project-Based vs. Conventional Instruction

    Estimated Time: 15 minutes


    Setting goals in this course will help you apply what you learn in your classroom. Goals you set now will be revisited later in the module and course.


    Even if you do not teach with projects, your teaching may incorporate some project-based approaches. Think about project-based approaches you may currently use and also how you incorporate technology in your classroom


    Based on your understanding of project-based learning so far, what goals would you like to set for yourself during this course/month/school year (choose one)? Write your goals. Below are some examples:



    • Try some project-based learning strategies
    • Make my classroom more student-centered
    • Incorporate group work
    • Do at least one project this year
    • Do more than one project this year
    • Improve a particular project
    • Integrate technology in classroom learning



    My project-based learning goals:


    Do more than one project this year.

    At least two: Individual and group project.

    Integrate technology in classroom learning to motivate more the students.

    Focus on 21st century skills

    Improving self assessment.

    Improving self directing and reflection.


    What challenges do you face or expect to face when doing project-based learning? Use the following chart to record your challenges and possible solutions for overcoming the challenges. You will revisit this chart.




    The project takes too much time,may the student meet the standards of the project given.





    Set standard that easily to understand at establish choose short and narrow topic.

    Low performing students will find difficulties in doing their project.


    It is not easy to engage with 21st century



    Focus on the student’s talent and skills.



    Engaging with 21st century skills may help me to establish this kind of learning process.


    How to grade their project based on 21st century skill.





    Use rubric and check list.
