Abstract

In modern society and education there is a discussion about the balance between how to structure and how to liberate the student. Structuring is necessary for students to learn the skills required so society can sustain itself. Liberating students is necessary to improve and innovate society and to prepare students for unforeseen setbacks and challenging changes. To make changes possible, a society is always a compromise between the conservatives and those who pursue change. The different learning contexts need to be connected with each other in a digital environment. On the basis of these design requirements, the teacher designs the learning environment together with the students. This makes the student owner of his own learning process with a learning environment which facilitates this.
