Goals, theories and strategies

TOPIC: Defending our oceans



Goals: To understand the key threats facing our oceans and also learn what everybody can do to prevent oceans from damaging in our everyday life – learn practical skills and understanding. To understand these things you have to think how it is involved in your own life (because the topic is so wide you have to spesify it and make it more practical matter).



Pedagogical theory: Socio-constructivist theory – learners build their own mental structures, pedagogical focus is task-oriented, self-directed activities - mental models are developed in order to understand a certain phenomena, models contain hierarchies, they are dynamic, subject to change, sometimes contain errors, and are more simplistic than the actual phenomenon. Experiential learning: experience as foundation of learning – experiences in everyday life. Social learning: learning as social participation – but learning does not happen as a result of interactivity - learning happens as a result of student reflection and integration of content into daily life.



Strategies: Gathering information from a spesific website, presentation (mindmap), learning from others and getting feedback about the mindmap, discussion about applying information to everyday life.



Reflection/feedback: Feedback is given (teacher) about the mindmap, reflections and outcomes in your own portfolio/weblog. (the idea of portfolio assesment could be part of this course?)



Tools to be used: Nota and weblog
