What is PBL?
So what is this module about?
We are all members of the Grey High community, the Greymouth or West Coast community, Digital Worldwide community and the Global community.
In this module we will explore Local and Global issues and will be exploring what makes a good citizen in all of these different communities.
In the next seven weeks we will be doing this by using project based learning.
Initially we will do some class activities together, where you will look at world or local issues and learn about these. You may be asked to play some online games, watch video on an issue, design a solution, and then making something.
So really, PBL is the act of learning through identifying a real-world problem and developing its solution.
In the last few weeks you get to choose your own project, with some guidelines around available equipment and safety. You should be aiming to create something that is useful or solves a problem. Hopefully in this module you will be engaged, get to design and build and show off your creativity, while working well with other members of your class.
