Transforming e-Learning into ee-Learning: The Centrality of Sociocultural Participation


Innovate: Journal of Online Education Volume 5, Number 1, ISSN 1552-3233


Traditional e-learning efforts use information communication technologies to create and support educational opportunities that are not constrained by temporal and spatial considerations. The focus of ee-learning is to couple e-learning's approach with experiential education models that employ service-learning methodologies and with social-constructivist views of learning that rely on learner participation in a community. Sandra B. Schneider and Michael A. Evans provide a theoretical framework for thinking about the relationship of experience and participation to pedagogy. Their model, which draws on Barbara Rogoff's work as well as John Dewey's notion of habits, examines pedagogical authenticity from a sociocultural perspective and highlights some structural features of successful, supportive organizational environments for authentic curricula. (Contains 6 exhibits and 1 table.)
