Abstract

This paper reviews the Problem-Based Learning Model, as well as current research that have been conducted in this area. Problem solving, along with the Taxonomy of Cognitive Objectives by Bloom and the revised taxonomy- Taxonomy for Learning, Teaching, and Assessing are also discussed. The researchers presented real-life problems to students in computer technology classes in order for them to effectively apply the PBL model. In reviewing the documents produced by our students, it clearly showed the effectiveness in applying the PBL model. By using real-life problems when implementing the PBL model, we can be sure that we are requiring our students to apply higher order cognitive thinking skills.
