Self-Directed Learning with Web-Based Sites: How Well Do Students' Perceptions and Thinking Match with Their Teachers?
Ng, Wan
Teaching Science, v54 n2 p24, 27-30 Jun 2008
With research consistently showing that students can be motivated to learn with ICT, this case study sought to investigate Year 7 students' learning about simple machines in an ICT-enhanced environment where they could self-direct their own learning with minimal intervention from the teacher. The study is focused on how well do students and teacher's perceptions of self-directed learning with ICT match one another. The results indicate several mismatches in this regard. The implications of these findings are discussed. (Contains 2 tables.)
