  15. 15. Meaningful learning and interaction Pedagogy     Pedagogical   Model   Learning   Strategies   Pedagogical   tools   Theory:  a  tightly  coupled  relationship  between  pedagogical  model  (learning   objective),  learning  strategies  (activities)  and  pedagogical  tools  (appropriate   technologies)  is  required  for  meaningful  learning  (Adapted  from:  Dabbagh,  2005)   1   2   3  
  16. 16. Designing  for  meaningful  learning   Adapted  from:  Dabbagh  (2005)   We  used  this  approach  to  facilitate  the   module,  participants  used  it  to  design   learning  for  their  students.       The  application  of  the  framework  by   participants  was  assessed.  In  the  next   slides,  we  present  how  participants   appropriated  it  (framework)  for  their   students.  
  17. 17. Observation  1:  Student  engagement  +  participative  creation  of  content  +   using  Wikispaces  =  meaningful  learning  (ml)     Observation  2:  Collaborative  learning  +  development  of  e-­‐portfolios  +   Facebook  group  =  ml    
  18. 18. Conclusion   Like  gifted  students,   ECP  requires  mediation  at     3  levels:  content,  process  &   Concepts…      
  19. 19. Is  it  time  for  transformative   approaches  in  ECP?   Thank  you   Contact:     Dick  Ng’ambi,  University  of   Cape  Town,  email:   Dick.ngambi@uct.ac.za
