4 Why Project base learning? Student could not analysis and design the real world project.
5 What is Project-Based Learning? Students actively engaged in learning Teachers as facilitators and coaches
6 Characteristics of PBL Organizes standards-based curriculum around a meaningful open-ended problem or project with more than one approach or answer Encourages active inquiry and higher-order thinking skills Engages students as stakeholders Creates a learning environment where teachers coach, guide inquiry and facilitate deeper levels of understanding Concludes with realistic products
7 Project Based Learning emphasizes learning activities that are: –student-centered They become the problem solver, decisions maker, investigator, documentarian They take on the role of those working in a particular discipline –long-term Projects can be a variety of lengths What they are not is one-day teacher centered lessons –integrated with real world issues and practices and have compelling questions Significance beyond the classroom walls
8 Project Based Learning Develops real world skills –many of the skills are those desired by today's employer such as: the ability to work well with others make thoughtful decisions take initiative solve complex problems. Allows for a variety of learning styles –accessible for all learners
9 The Students Move from following orders..to carrying out self-directed learning activities from memorizing and repeating.. To discovering, integrating and presenting from listening and reacting..To communicating and taking responsibility
10 The Students Move from knowledge of facts, terms and content..to understanding processes from theory.. to application of theory from teacher dependent..to empowered
12 Objective To investigate the effectiveness of project-based learning in database subject
13 Methodology 50 IT students who enrolled in Database subject I Analysis and conceptual designEntity Relationship Diagram (ERD) II. Relational database mappingRelational scheme and normalization III. Database implementationApplication Problem Definition and Project Objective Presentation and documentation

17 Results more experience in analysis (84.62%) collaborate with colleagues on solving common tasks (53.85%) more exchange and discussion (84.62%) However, they have far less experience with find the learning resource (only 23.07% are familiar with learning by themself) and using the Internet to find peers for solving problems (only 38.46% answered positively). Majority of them (53.85%) reported that they have learned as effectively as in traditional way, and 30.77% reported that they have learned more than in traditional way.
18 Conclusion Project-based learning helps students develop skills for living in a knowledge-based, highly technological society. Students make effective use of IT as they produce a product, presentation, or performance IT is integrated into the learning – students are NOT learning IT skills in isolation technology is used to promote critical thinking and communication
