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…

Liu, Min; Liu, Sa; Pan, Zilong; Zou, Wenting; Li, Chenglu – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2019
Most of the previous problem-based learning (PBL) studies have been conducted with gifted or regular education students and have shown successes. However, little research on PBL exists for disadvantaged middle school students, especially students who are considered to be at risk of failing academically. In this study, we examined the use of a…

Whitlock, Annie McMahon – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2019
In this paper, I describe the implementation of a project-based economics unit in a fifth-grade classroom in Michigan, titled One Hen. One Hen is a curricular unit designed to teach students about social entrepreneurship as a way for students to learn economic concepts while developing their own civic efficacy by engaging in a project where they…

Si, Jihyun; Kong, Hyun-Hee; Lee, Sang-Hwa – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2019
This study aims to explore the effects of argumentation with the concept map method during medical problem-based learning (PBL) on individual clinical reasoning. Individual clinical reasoning ability was assessed through problem-solving performance and arguments that students constructed during individual clinical reasoning processes. Toulmin's…

Korpi, Hilkka; Peltokallio, Liisa; Piirainen, Arja – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2019
The aim of the study was to investigate how physiotherapy students using a problem-based learning approach develop into experts during higher education, and answers the question: How do physiotherapy students at bachelor's level understand the problem-based learning approach while learning to become professionals? PBL is examined using…

Lee, Huei-Chen; Blanchard, Margaret R. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2019
This quantitative study examined factors underlying middle and high school teachers' choices about whether to use problem-based learning (PBL). Survey items measured respondents' perceived competence, autonomy, and relatedness, and the value and costs they placed on implementing PBL. Teachers who have taught with PBL (n = 126) had significantly…

Ulger, Kani – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2018
The problem-based learning (PBL) approach was implemented as a treatment for higher education visual arts students over one semester to examine its effect on the creative thinking and critical thinking disposition of these students. PBL had a significant effect on creative thinking, but critical thinking disposition was affected to a lesser…

Valentine, Keri Duncan – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2018
With an increased push to integrate coding and computational literacy in K-12 learning environments, teacher educators will need to consider ways they might support preservice teachers (PSTs). This paper details a tinkering approach used to engage PSTs in thinking computationally as they worked with geometric concepts they will be expected to…

Cairns, Darran R.; Curtis, Reagan; Sierros, Konstantinos A.; Bolyard, Johnna J. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2018
There is currently significant interest in 3D fabrication in middle school classrooms. At its best 3D printing can be utilized in authentic design projects that integrate math, science, and technology, which facilitate deep learning by students. In essence, students are able to tinker in a virtual world using 3D design software and then tinker in…

Chan, Monica M.; Blikstein, Paulo – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2018
This is a research study of design and engineering classes that use a problem-based learning (PBL) approach in digital fabrication makerspaces in two middle schools. In these studies, teachers employ a PBL approach and provide an ill-structured problem scenario to facilitate design and engineering lessons in the FabLab (fabrication laboratory).…

Marshall, Jill A.; Harron, Jason R. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2018
The maker movement has strong connections to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) as well as art and crafts, but the goals of making are not in perfect alignment with any of these disciplines. Within the problem-based paradigm, however, there is room to incorporate making as situated STEM learning, even in formal,…

Smith, Shaunna – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2018
In the context of a 10-day summer camp makerspace experience that employed design-based learning (DBL) strategies, the purpose of this descriptive case study was to better understand the ways in which children use visualization skills to negotiate design as they move back and forth between the world of nondigital design techniques (i.e., drawing,…

Parekh, Priyanka; Gee, Elisabeth R. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2018
The Maker Movement has been received by the field of K--12 education with great enthusiasm as a way of teaching STEM content to children. We call attention to and identify learning opportunities in children's projects created in a playful, informal environment with easily available materials. In keeping with research in the field of maker…

Hirshfield, Laura; Koretsky, Milo D. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2018
The use of problem-based learning (PBL) is gaining attention in the engineering classroom as a way to help students synthesize foundational knowledge and to better prepare students for practice. In this work, we study the discourse interactions between 27 student teams and two instructors in an engineering PBL environment to analyze how…

Schmidt, Matthew; Tawfik, Andrew A. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2018
This article describes the iterative design, development, and evaluation of a case-based learning environment focusing on an ill-structured sales management problem. We discuss our processes and situate them within the broader framework of educational design research. The learning environment evolved over the course of three design phases. A…
