Notes:Tutors may want to ask their students to do this activity on a blog, discusion forum, etc.To jumpstart the activity, tutors may ask students about how much they remember about statistical tests (e.g., t-test, ANOVA) or quadratic equations they have learned in schools.To what extent can the students apply what they have learned in understanding or solving real-world problems?

Overview<br />Over the next two sessions we will explore <br />the dimensions of meaningful learning, and<br />how ICT can be used to enable it<br />3<br />
Warm-up activity<br />Reflect: What have you learned very well in your formal education? <br />Share an experience/example with a partner<br />Share with the class<br />4<br />
Dimensions of ML<br />Meaningful learning typically entails<br />Using real-world contexts<br />Tapping on students’ prior knowledge<br />Learning-by-doing<br />Self-directed learning<br />Collaborative learning<br />5<br />
Objectives<br />By the end of today’s lesson you will be able to:<br />suggest ways to use real-world contexts in teaching and learning with your students<br />suggest ways to tap on your students’ prior knowledge<br />suggest ways to facilitate students learning by doing<br />6<br />http://www.flickr.com/photos/vizzzual-dot-com/2655969483/ used under CC licence<br />
