Abstract

Educational technology courses at the University of Florida are modeling the concept of students as producers. Through student-based projects such as an online support center, educational software, student portfolios, and documentary-type CD-roms our students are producing educational products. These 'real' activities are improving our courses as students learn by doing, thereby creating a constructivist learning environment. Relevant, contextual projects such as these provide students with an increased sense of empowerment and ownership. In our presentation we will share how the traditional roles of instructor and learner may no longer appropriate.
