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…

Tawfik, Andrew A.; Kolodner, Janet L. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2016
Current theories and models of education often argue that instruction is best administered when knowledge is situated within a context. Problem-based learning (PBL) provides an approach to education that has particularly powerful affordances for learning disciplinary content and practices by solving authentic problems within a discipline. However,…

Smith, Mike; Cook, Kathryn – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2012
The impact of problem-based learning (PBL) in improving academic achievement comparedwith other forms of teaching is equivocal. This paper argues that poor tutorial preparation and vague reporting of the brainstorming stage of PBL are major contributing factors. To address these issues this study incorporated a scaffolding mechanism into the…

Hmelo-Silver, Cindy E. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2012
The theme of this special issue is timely as the world becomes increasingly flat and globally connected (Friedman, 2007). By focusing on an international perspective in problem-based learning (PBL), it puts culture squarely in the center, whether it is a national or disciplinary culture. The articles in this special issue represent Thailand, South…

Hmelo-Silver, Cindy E.; Derry, Sharon J.; Bitterman, Alan; Hatrak, Natalie – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2009
Helping students in the professions apply conceptual ideas to the problems of practice is a key goal of problem-based learning (PBL). Because PBL is organized around small, collaborative groups, scaling up PBL to large, heterogeneous classes poses significant challenges for implementation. This study presents a hybrid model that mixes online and…
