In Sun West, we use the term PeBL to refer to an educational philosophy that includes three complementary and integrated methods of both teaching and learning:
In a personalized learning environment the student drives their own learning. However, skills need to be developed for students to be prepared to lead their learning. A variety of learning experiences and instructional approaches are used to address the distinct learning needs, interests, and aspirations of individual students and help prepare them to take on more responsibility for their learning – when they are ready!
Refers to learning that in some way utilizes electronic devices or equipment; this is not to suggest that it should be the only or even the primary way of learning, but that it is a useful practice both in terms of efficient information gathering and critical skills development.
This instructional strategy combines student voice and choice with traditional, face-to-face forms of instruction. Blended learning is teacher driven and provides students with more opportunity to be involved in all aspects of their learning.
