  • Designing meaningful learning
    • Using real-world contexts
    • Tapping students’ prior knowledge
    • Learning-by-doing

  • 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

    Mimic real-world use of current tools(watch this video)
