In Problem-Based Case Learning (PBCL), students work in teams to develop and present solutions to real-world problems. In this video from Making Learning Real, students in an HTML class present their designs to a business partner for her business's Web site. The class and the business partner provide feedback on each team’s work.
In Problem-Based Case Learning (PBCL), a real business problem is identified and presented to students. Students work through the nine stages of the PBCL process in teams. They analyze the problem, conduct field research, make revisions based on their research, form hypotheses about the solution, and finalize their decisions in preparation for presenting them.
In the eighth stage, Evidence of Learning, students present their team's interpretation of the problem and their solution to it. They explain their reasoning and invite feedback from classmates, the instructor, and the business partner.
In the ninth stage, Feedback and Evaluation, the instructor and business partner assess student work.
Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
