Towards an Idea-Centered, Principle-Based Design Approach to Support Learning as Knowledge Creation
Hong, Huang-Yao; Sullivan, Florence R.
Educational Technology Research and Development, v57 n5 p613-627 Oct 2009
While the importance of viewing learning as knowledge creation is gradually recognized (Paavola et al. Computer-supported collaborative learning: foundations for a CSCL community 2002; Rev Educ Res 74:557-576 2004), an important question remains to be answered--what represents an effective instructional design to support collaborative creative learning? This paper argues for the need to move away from efficiency-oriented instructional design to innovation-oriented instructional design if learning as knowledge creation is to be pursued as an important instructional goal. The rationale in support of this argument is discussed from four different theoretical perspectives and an idea-centered, principle-based design approach as an example is proposed for discussion.
