Course Description

This mini-lesson seeks to answer the driving question: How can we, as PBL teachers, use appropriate scaffolding to support student learning throughout their project?

PBL 3: Scaffolding FAQ

Does this course ONLY apply to PBL teachers?

  • No! Scaffolding is a necessary piece of every classroom, and this course will give you further insights on ways you can create applicable scaffolds during any student project.

Is this course mobile-friendly?

  • Yes! The intentional design for this PBL pathway is for teachers to have choice in their learning, so you can learn with your phone, tablet, or computer.

What is the best way to take these courses?

  • We suggest that you avoid "binge watching" the PBL series. While lots of ground will be covered, you want the material to translate into practice. Our recommendation is to move through them one course each week so that you have time to read and reflect. If you desire a faster completion, we suggest no more than 1 course every other day. That way, you learn and then apply before moving on to the next.
