In Secondary School, our distance learning program emphasises Project-Based Learning (PBL). Here is one of our Grade 6 students presentation of the Science, Math and IT PBL.
We also asked our student for her experience with this assignment. And this is what she had to say:
This was a truly unique experience for me as it was very different compared to our regular examinations. Not only did I find a way to apply all that I had learned in Math such as percentages, averages, etc. and in Science such as microorganisms like Coronavirus, fossil fuels, and their environmental impact, energy sources, etc. but interestingly found that both subjects in real life have such a close connection. It was truly satisfying to solve a real-life situation in the form of my research question and had lots of fun, using tools like Google Slides and PowToons which is an easy animation app. There were new experiences like learning about the MLA method of citation which was new and challenging as well as creating a plan for the 4 weekly submissions all leading up to the final presentation. I want to thank all the teachers involved from Ms. Prajakta to Ms. Fatema to Ms. Namrata for all their support and guidance without which this would not have been possible. I hope this format of PBL continues into the next year as well.
