Please share your experiences.

 

I see my students not only learning from the internet, but also learning quite a lot from the peers. They see other students' skills, behaviors and perspectives, for example.

There are so many benefits to self organized learning. In this post, I will just talk about one. SOLEs, like any kind of inquiry based learning, are intellectual journeys. Students have to consider the big question, coordinate with group partners about what to research, use internet skills, consider their presentation audience, and finally deliver a presentation. The process suits constructivist learning theory.

In many parts of the World, the common approach to teaching in secondary and tertiary education is to lecture. Students are told what they need to remember. No opportunity is given them to construct knowledge; they just have to memorize facts.
