Virtue, Emily E.; Hinnant-Crawford, Brandi N. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2019
Supporters of project-based learning (PBL) argue that outcomes from the model include better performance in academic (Bell, 2010; Thomas, 2000) and non-academic outcomes (Saunders-Steward, Gyles, & Shore, 2010). The New Tech Network (NTN) is a school improvement network that provides training and development for high school faculty who commit…

Cairns, Darran R.; Curtis, Reagan; Sierros, Konstantinos A.; Bolyard, Johnna J. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2018
There is currently significant interest in 3D fabrication in middle school classrooms. At its best 3D printing can be utilized in authentic design projects that integrate math, science, and technology, which facilitate deep learning by students. In essence, students are able to tinker in a virtual world using 3D design software and then tinker in…

Brassler, Mirjam; Dettmers, Jan – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2017
Interdisciplinary competence is important in academia for both employability and sustainable development. However, to date, there are no specific interdisciplinary education models and, naturally, no empirical studies to assess them. Since problem-based learning (PBL) and project-based learning (PjBL) are learning approaches that emphasize…

deChambeau, Aimée L.; Ramlo, Susan E. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2016
Problem-based learning (PBL) has been gaining in popularity, especially within the context of STEM-based (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) schools. Program assessments for these schools typically focus on student standardized test scores rather than the needs of the teachers. This study utilized anecdote circles, storytelling via…

Stalker, Sarah L.; Cullen, Theresa A.; Kloesel, Kevin – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2015
Within the past 10 years severe weather has been responsible for an annual average of 278 fatalities in the United States (National Weather Service, 2013). During severe weather special populations are populations of high concentrations of people that cannot respond quickly. Schools show both of these characteristics. The average lead time for…
