Understanding how Moodle is designed

Social Constructivism

This is a theory of learning that says that in order to learn new concepts, learners need to actively construct meaning in relating:what is already known to each other and to their own experiences.

In practice, learners will:

See topics as relevant

Plan & carry out work collaboratively

Practice self assessment

Apply concepts to new situations

Moodle was actually designed to support this approach to learning. It is a good idea to become familiar with using the official Moodle Site - Moodle.org
