A new report from the Danish Evalueringsinstitut (IVA) shows that 71% of the teachers claim that practical problem-based learning empowers motivation among pupils in comparison to traditional pedagogy. According to the teachers, the pupils take more initiative when they are working on an authentic problem and that they become more motivated when the result of their work can be used by someone else.
Problem-based Learning in practice
The evaluation is made on four different practical activities:
- Physical and activating activities
- Problem-based and application-oriented activities
- Activities focused on making a product
- Activities that are vocational or aimed at a real practice outside of school.
The Danish Minister for Children and Education Mattias Tesfaye comments in the following way:
“I dream of a primary school with a high professional level and a strong connection between theory and practice. (…) Varied teaching is good for all children and can increase motivation for both boys and girls.”
