    • Why learn by doing?
      We are always interacting with our environment
      using different senses (seeing, hearing, smelling, feeling, tasting)
      Knowledge is constructed, not transmitted, as a result of experiencing and interacting with the environment
      Learning retention rates
      Chi, Bassok, Lewis, Reiman & Glaser, 1989
    • Why learn by doing?
      Knowledge is fundamentally situated in practice
      “When knowledge is first and foremost a form of activity and experience – of doing something in the world within a community of practice – the facts and information eventually come for free” (Shaffer, Squire, Halverson & Gee, 2005)
      Knowing and doing are reciprocal
      knowledge is situated and progressively developed through activity

    • Learn by doing with technology
      Experimenting with technology
      Exploring
      Hypothesizing
      Conjecturing
      Speculating
      Testing
      Datalogger
      Robotics
    • Learn by doing with technology
      Immersing into virtual worlds
      Quest Atlantis
    • Role of students
      Knowledge is built by the learner, not supplied by the teacher (Bruckman, 1998; Piaget, 1967)
      New knowledge could be acquired more effectively if the learners were engaged in constructing products that were personally meaningful to them
      Learning by doing entails trying things out, formulating hypotheses and testing them
      Explore, experiment, construct, converse and reflect on what they are learning
      Use info resources and knowledge construction tools to solve problems

    • Role of teachers
      Design learning activities that make students use different senses
      Expose students to situations that make them curious enough to take learning into their own hands
      Open up interesting problems and provide tools for solving them
      Give students guidance and facilitation when needed
      listen to students’ questions
      answer students' questions
      suggest ways they could discover the answer themselves
