Culclasure, Brooke T.; Longest, Kyle C.; Terry, Troy M. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2019
Project-based learning (PjBL) as a PK-12 instructional model is growing nationwide. PjBL is seen as a mechanism to deliver academic content in a more engaging way for students and in a way that stresses the development of skills critical to success in the 21st-century workforce. Because of its increasing popularity and the disparate breadth of…

Kim, Nam Ju; Belland, Brian R.; Axelrod, Daryl – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2019
Establishing optimal challenge enhances intrinsic motivation, interest, and the probability of success in the learning activity. In K-12 problem-based learning (PBL), students may struggle to address associated tasks that are beyond their current ability levels. This paper suggested learner-centered scaffolding systems (LSS) to improve K-12…

Parekh, Priyanka; Gee, Elisabeth R. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2018
The Maker Movement has been received by the field of K--12 education with great enthusiasm as a way of teaching STEM content to children. We call attention to and identify learning opportunities in children's projects created in a playful, informal environment with easily available materials. In keeping with research in the field of maker…
