Ewaste3

This is the last entry of the three-part blog series on Battling E-Waste: A PBL Activity. The first part talked about the planning phase and the second part talked about the implementation of the project. After the students created and printed the infographic posters, it was time to start the e-waste collection campaign.

To make sure that the campaign is officially recognized by the school, I wrote a letter to the chancellor requesting a special order to allow us to conduct a campaign and collect e-waste from the students, teachers and staff.

The students started the campaign among their fellow high school students. During the homeroom activity period, the different teams discussed the e-waste collection campaign to their assigned classrooms.IMG_8710IMG_8707

On March 13, 2015, the students visited the different offices in the university. Aside from providing infographic posters, the students also brought “save the date” cards and an e-waste deposit box.IMG_9568IMG_9755

In conclusion, a PBL activity is a good way to teach our students that learning goes beyond the four walls of the classroom. It teaches them that education becomes relevant when it becomes a tool to change behavior and eventually contributes to the development of the society.
