Modeling of Project-Based Learning at School through Transactional Approach in Education



The paper is devoted to analyzing secondary school project-based learning (taking projects of "computer science" profile in the Lyceum 1533 as examples) and presenting this process as a series of transactions (educational events). Actors taking part in project-based learning and educational events (transactions) are being classified. A method for modeling this process is proposed, a software model is implemented, and a number of hypotheses are put forward. These hypotheses allow drawing a conclusion about the quality of work based on the chain of educational events obtained, and identify certain problems in the course of its implementation.
