Abstract

Abstract: To facilitate this meaningful learning in an online course the course was designed around a model based on the Constructionist Learning Theory. The Integrated Constructionist Model that was implemented was initially developed in a face-to-face (F2F) environment. In the F2F setting, the model was exceptionally successful. However, online environments are often characterized by what Shaw termed as, "social relations that are fractured and social interactions and communications that are strained." This paper reports on a study that indicates the Social Cultural Environment aspect of the model may reduce its effectiveness in an online environment.
