Project-Based Learning with Webinar (PBL with Webinar)
PBL with Webinar engages students in active learning in the context of realistic projects via three phases: acquiring prerequisite knowledge, creating group content video, sharing and reflection via webinar.
The project tasks are derived by referencing the ‘Skills Framework for Infocomm Technology’; jointly developed by SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG), Workforce Singapore (WSG), Info-Communications Media Development Authority (IMDA), together with industry associations, education institutions, training providers, organizations and unions. This enables the practice and mastery of real-world skills; which encompasses in-demand existing and emerging skills and competencies, so as to address industry needs accordingly.
The implementation of PBL with Webinar has resulted in a significant drop in disengaged learning behaviour and improvement in attendance and punctuality. Improved student motivation through this technology-supported active learning approach brings students closer to attaining mastery learning, to be both examination-ready and work-ready.
The variety of technology tools, student activities and delivery modes employed in PBL with Webinar could be adapted in other technical institutions as part of micro-learning or micro-practice while the Skills Framework used could be referenced to promote real-world skills mastery and lifelong learning.
