A Dashboard to Regulate Project-Based Learning
In this paper, we propose the dashboards of the Pco-Vision platform to support and enhance Project-Based Learning (PBL). Based on the assumption that Self-Regulated Learning (SRL) is a major component of PBL, we have focused our attention in the design of a dashboard to enhance SRL in PBL. We describe the characteristics of PBL and show why a dashboard can help involved SRL processes, more particularly self-monitoring and self-judgment. We provide a categorization of the information to be presented on dashboards to help students involved in a PBL situation; by taking into account both the project and the learning goals. Finally we have conducted an experiment using the Pco-Vision platform with 64 students involved in a 6-months PBL course; results show that, whereas students rather use direct communication for tasks related to the self-monitoring process, the dashboard appears to be of great importance to enhance the self-judgment process, especially by presenting the information about the way of carrying out the activities.
