Discussion # 2: Practical PBL

  1. What is the feasibility of incorporating PBL into your content area of focus?

PBL in Health Education is highly feasible, although some topics might be more suitable than others. I would think emotional and personal topics such as mental health issues, drawing personal boundaries, and positive versus negative role models, might be more difficult as PBL than examining body structure, organs, and body functions, studying various diseases including STDs, and bullying.

  1. What are the challenges in implementing PBL in today’s classroom environment?

Some of the challenges with implementing PBL in today’s classroom environment would be the assessment process. The teachers needs to do continues assessments during class, however, I can imagine answering to parents regarding the assessments might be even more challenging when there are no test and quizzes to refer to.

  1. What technologies can facilitate PBL?

The two PBL units are focusing on Health Education and diabetes. I would like the students to document all work on their blogs. Presentations are up to the students to decide technology. The awareness campaign in Unit #1 can be made either as a video or radio pubic service announcement. The students can collaborate through any virtual workspace as they choose.

There is a link to two of my PBL units in Health Education focusing on Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes and the endocrine system here on my blog, Educational Technology & Type 1 Diabetes.
