Abstract

To help students learn the critical thinking skills and the essential strategies for being engaged citizens in a technology- and media-suffused 21st century, digital technologies are often used to create enriched learning environments. Although learning problem-solving skills is typically deemed as important, acquiring skills needed to solve ill-structured problems proves to be especially challenging for young learners. In this presentation, we will discuss a media-rich learning environment that uses problem-based learning as its theoretical underpinning to support middle school students’ development of problem solving skills. We will also share our experience in using a learner-as-designer approach as the development model for creating this environment.
