Enhanced Engagement through Project-Based Learning
International Christian University High School, Japan
This presentation reports on the implementation of utilizing project-based learning to enhance student engagement in a high school English class. Fifteen students created their original short video documentaries about a global issue.
Students conducted surveys and mini-projects as scaffold while preparing for their documentaries. To monitor progress, peer feedback, self-assessment, and Edmodo were used.
The course culminated in each team’s showing of their video documentary. Analysis of reflective essays suggests strong student engagement and success in desired learning outcomes through the project-based learning. Sample outputs and project details will be provided to teachers for similar set-up in their schools.
