Abstract

One variable that is constant in educational technology research is that it is constantly changing. Online courses customised learning tools, media delivery systems and new pedagogies that might prove useful in advancing student learning spring up on a regular and constant basis. Given this constant evolution of new tools, how can educators track and monitor the value of new tools and skills learnt? The authors of this paper have developed an online metacognitive tool that helps students working in teams reflect on their learning strategies through a process of planning, monitoring and evaluation. The tool evolved through a process of iterative design using Design-Based research, a methodology that enables innovation in ICT, while ensuring methodological rigour.
