Abstract

In this study, we developed a training program for pre-service teachers in order to cultivate their problem-solving abilities. The program promotes the utilization of various “views and ways of thinking” that should be taught in each subject area as kinds of cognitive strategies. In addition, we developed e-learning materials to help students perform exercises to utilize views and ways of thinking in problem-solving activities as homework. Moreover, we provided them with course work that prompts them to use an e-portfolio system we developed. This system allows learners to conduct collaborative problem-solving exercises, while utilizing the views and ways of thinking. Furthermore, learners automatically shared their performance records and outcomes by completing tasks, and they were able to perform a self-evaluation by following a rubric. Finally, we analyzed the effects of the course by using log data from the e-learning materials and the e-portfolio system.
