New Evidence supports PBL

October 2, 2010

There was an interesting post by Bob Lenz on Edutopia.org on Thursday.  While his post was related to a study on the positive impact that a project-based instructional approach/curriculum had over a traditional textbook & lecture control group in an economics unit, the real interesting part for me were the questions he ended with…..

As exciting as this news is for practitioners and school leaders who support PBL, I am still left with some essential questions:

Do you think more people will decide to use PBL because we now have “hard” data to confirm our beliefs about student learning? If not, what will it take to convince them to use a PBL approach? Does data really help convince people to change practice? If not, what does?
