    • 1. Designing meaningful learning
      • Using real-world contexts
      • 2. Tapping students’ prior knowledge
      • 3. Learning-by-doing
    • Problem
      Most lessons in formal education are
      formula or theory-centric
      procedures devoid of connection to real-world contexts

    • 4. Real-world contexts
      Are based on real-life issues, problems, experiences, examples
      Focus on the application (knowledge-in-use) rather than the mere memorisation of theories, principles
      Can help engage students, maintain motivation

    • 9. Roles of technology
      How might technology foster the use of real-world contexts?
      Use of simulations or games to recreate a model or modified version of a real-world situation (e.g., flight simulator, McDonald’s)
      Mimic real-world use of current tools(watch this video)
