DEVELOPING STUDENT-DRIVEN ACTIVITIES FOR PBL
IT'S NOT THAT I'M SO SMART,
IT'S JUST THAT I STAY WITH PROBLEMS LONGER
The key ideas for this week
What is scaffolding?
Developing Student Resilience
It is important to support learners, to help them and provide a positive feedback.
When learners fail or make mistakes we should make them understand that failure is not wrong and that we can better and we learn from making mistakes.
As educators we are expected to work with our learners and provide support so that they can manage and when we work on PBL tasks we should be with them and encourage them never to give up.
Here is our padlet where we share our experience as teachers or learners but were able to cope with the difficulties we had met.
The week was really interesting and we could follow a webinar by Kornélia Lohyňová who presented the skills which we need to work on PBL: an enterprenerial mindset . What she described is related not only to business but any activity we can carry out at school.
It was a great webinar as she provided us with links to new tools.
The tools which were shared :
https://canvanizer.com/ This is a tool used for brainstorming and working together.
The Design Thinking Toolkit for Educators provides teachers with a toolkit: it contains the process and methods of design along with the Designer’s Workbook, adapted specifically for the context of K-12 education. It offers new ways to be intentional and collaborative when designing, and empowers educators to create impactful solutions. The toolkit can be downloaded for free.
This is a school which supports teachers who want to mainstream entrepreneurial education in teaching methods and learning processes they set up in classroom every day.

Now I am going to continue working on my PBL by using the LearningDesigner Tool and I will try to check these tools and guides later to see if I could start using them.
The journey is continuing online!
