Patterns for Active Learning


Document and reflect learning process

Active Role



Students need to understand different perspectives how to solve a problem. Therefore, students improve and extend artefacts from peers instead of their own (Eckstein, Bergin, Sharp, & Manns, 2002b, p. 14).

Example for Technological Support

Digital artefacts can be easily copied, remixed, changed, improved and shared – provided the owner of the artefacts allows it.
