  • Active – students should be actively involved in what they are doing and should be active participants who are free to manipulate their environment. For example, in mathematics students should be allowed to experiment and risk not immediately finding the correct solution in solving a problem.Constructive – students should be given the opportunity to reflect upon what they have learnt and construct their own mental model of what happened that led them to find the correct solution.Intentional – tasks should be goal directed with students striving towards cognitive goals.Authentic – tasks should be authentic, that is they should be based on real world problem solving and thereby meaningful to the student.Cooperative – students should work together in pairs or in small groups to achieve goals. This improves cooperation and communication.
