In this topic we will critique some examples of learning environments and how they reflect learning models and theories.


A learning environment reflects and embodies theories and models of learning held by its designer. For example, what learning theories do you think might underly the technology-supported learning activity in the photograph?

Note that these underlying theories and models may or may not be made explicit.

In your assessment portfolio, your task will be to make explicit the theories and models underlying a selected learning environment of your choice.

In this section we'll refer to two simple case studies (Emilia and Brett) that we introduced in the earlier section on Educational design theory. This will help you prepare for the assessment activity.
