Teaching PBL in a Social Media Generation

Project Details


The overarching goals of the AAU-eLL & Stanford-PBLlab collaboration are to explore teaching and learning practices in two best cases of integrated learning environments supporting PBL, as to gain mutual inspiration for innovating pedagogical models and environments. In our current practices we strive to design for learning and for learning environments which facilitate:

an ability to make content connections (via effective hyperlink navigation) to foster effective learning as an active and constructive process,

an ability to make useful interpersonal connections (via communication technologies), to foster the social side of collaborative learning (Vygotsky, 1978).

an ability to understand complex interdependencies among different domains (via simulations or games) to foster the problem-solving aspects of effective learning.
