Introduction to Project-based Learning UPDATES

Introduction to Project-based Learning Programme!

Are you ready to bring Project-based Learning to your classroom?  Join the many teachers who have already signed up for Project-based Learning training through our online platforms starting on 9 May 2022.

 

In case you missed our earlier call, here’s a recap on why we are doing what we do:

 

Imagine a world where every child leaves matric as an enthusiastic young adult, equipped and ready for the next step in their adult journey. The Department of Basic Education’s E³ entrepreneurship in education programme is working with teachers like you to make this dream a reality through Project-based Learning. Join us in helping young people achieve their highest potential!

What’s in it for the teachers?

By fast-forwarding digital learning and support for educators, we’re equipping you and your schools to create more meaningful and engaging learning environments through Project-based Learning. This programme will help you to get your CAPS work done, improve class engagement and grow your learners.

Training preparations

The beginning of the “Introduction to Project-based Learning” (PBL) course is almost here! We are so pleased to kickstart this journey with this exciting training programme that will give teachers the tools needed to help equip learners for a bright future.

 

For those who are registered for the training, keep an eye on your inbox for all you need to know about the build-up to your training.

 

Note: There will be 5 lessons of approximately 2 hours each – but we all learn at a different pace, so you are free to do the zero-data (if you’re accessing through a mobile device) online course at your own speed.

Teacher training material

Support for the teachers who are engaged in face-to-face training includes an Introduction to Project-based Learning manual and its companion activity book.  These have just been completed and will soon be available for download.  If you are in a hurry to see it, please feel free to download it from the News section of TeacherConnectcommunity.

 

The projects are available for download from all our platforms and the only update to these is the rubrics.  Please ask your Provincial Coordinator or the E³ team member responsible for your province.
