    • 4. Constructivist approach (1)
      • Practical problem-solving activity
      • Learning can be achieved by reflective thinking to solve problems through analysis of lifelike problems and potential alternative solutions, i.e. teachers acting as guides rather than as dispensers of information

      4 - 6 Oct 2008 TTT Workshop Cape Town
    • 7. Applications: learning/teaching
      • Students are given problems and resources to solve them
      • Learning is active & learners are encouraged to be self-directed, taking responsibility for their own learning
      • Interaction among students promotes achievement of learning goals more successfully than learning alone
