Cognitive Requirements for Learning with Open-Ended Learning Environments.
Land, Susan M.
Educational Technology Research and Development, v48 n3 p61-78 2000
Analyzes assumptions underlying learner-centered, technology-based environments in light of how well learners appear to meet the cognitive demands for engaging them. Design implications include the following considerations: direct learner attention to key variables and visual cues; prompt and guide connections to prior knowledge; and provide explicit scaffolding of metacognition and teaching-learning strategies.
