DescriptionInformation technology (IT) accelerates the information transmission rate and the knowledge renewal cycles. To cope with the challenges that the IT age poses to learning, new ways of perceiving learning and new pedagogical approaches emerge. Amongst the expanding literature, knowledge building is one of the important concepts which assumes as its core intellectual co-construction activities in a community. Researchers like Bereiter & Scardamalia claim that children can also engage in knowledge construction just as researchers do. Collaborative project-based learning activities have emerged as a popular pedagogical approach to bring about knowledge building. However, how knowledge building takes place in project work is still a relatively less researched area. In this seminar, the speaker will provide a review of literature that suggests that the social and affective aspects of project work play a crucial role in the knowledge building process.
