Situated Cognition and Problem-Based Learning: Implications for Learning and Instruction with Technology
Journal of Interactive Learning Research Vol. 13, No. 4 (2002) pp. 393–414
The aims of this article are three-fold. First, this article reviews the foundational premises of situated cognition and attempts to substantiate its theoretical underpinnings with the transactional worldview supported by the works of John Dewey,...
A Journey on Refining Rules for Online Discussion: Implications for the Design of Learning Management Systems
Journal of Interactive Learning Research Vol. 20, No. 2 (April 2009) pp. 157–173
Research on asynchronous online discussions has primarily focused on their efficacy in relation to learning outcomes. Rarely are there investigations on how the design of online learning activities or how discussions could be incorporated into...
Forging Links Between “Communities of Practice” and Schools Through Online Learning Communities: Implications for Appropriating and Negotiating Knowledge
International Journal on E-Learning Vol. 1, No. 2 (2002) pp. 23–33
In this paper, we suggest how links between schools and communities of practice can be forged through networked on-line learning communities. We recognize that efforts have already been made to push 'communities of practice' into the school...
Differentiating between Communities of Practices (CoPs) and Quasi-Communities: Can CoPs exist Online?
International Journal on E-Learning Vol. 1, No. 3 (2002) pp. 23–29
In this article, we consider the basic issue of the differences between Community of Practices (CoPs) and Quasi-communities (Hung & Chen, 2002). We argue that fundamentally online communities (or quasi-communities) should be conceived as a 'sub-set' ...
Towards a Community Incubator: The ICAP Design Framework for Social Constructivist Educational Designers
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2008 (Jun 30, 2008) pp. 2338–2347
This paper highlights the often-mentioned mismatch between the more social constructivistic oriented pedagogy and the traditional instructional design model. Such a framework is important as a design process relevant to the work of CSCL. Any...
World Conference on E-Learning in Corporate, Government, Healthcare, and Higher Education 2003 (2003) pp. 1782–1785
This case study documents our effort in using Knowledge Building approach on 18 pre-service teachers learning to design constructivist activities with technology. The course was delivered using blended instructions, complementing face-to-face...
From Traditional to Constructivist Epistemologies: A Proposed Theoretical Framework Based on Activity Theory for Learning Communities
Journal of Interactive Learning Research Vol. 17, No. 1 (January 2006) pp. 37–55
This article is concerned with how learning communities are transformed as they evolve from traditional learning epistemologies towards constructivist orientations and pedagogies. Adopting activity theory as a framework, the article discusses how...
World Conference on E-Learning in Corporate, Government, Healthcare, and Higher Education 2003 (2003) pp. 2212–2215
This paper describes and discusses the Project ROAD - Rules for Online Argumentation and Discussion. The paper in particular discusses the mediating importance of rules to be well established for online discussions with the complementary emphasis of ...
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2008 (Jun 30, 2008) pp. 3777–3779
In the paper, we discuss problems related to traditional hierarchical organizations and argue that adaptability is important for organizations to survive in the 21st century. Expanding on Bransford’s (1999) notion of adaptive expert, we propose a...
Journal of Interactive Learning Research Vol. 14, No. 2 (April 2003) pp. 129–155
In this paper we attempt to appropriate relevant neuroscience research findings and draw possible implications to learning and instruction. In such an attempt, we also complement findings from the cognitive and learning sciences with relevancy from...
International Journal on E-Learning Vol. 2, No. 4 (2003) pp. 60–71
This paper attempts to analyze the reasons why some online communities thrive, while others seem to have less participation. From such an analysis, design implications are derived for application to online learning communities. A conceptual...
