Nalysis of two learning environment designs+annotated bibliography

This assignment gives you an opportunity to explore the design of learning environments in greater depth. The literature provides a range of ideas from very generic design models through to detailed descriptions of specific applications. The Learning Designs Project Web site (or situated approaches. Use these as your starting points to understanding the key ideas and follow up the references and keywords in your further research.
Constructivist learning environments
David Jonassens ideas about constructivist learning environments. See the Jonassen & Rohrer-Murphy (1999) on the articles page also which provides a description of the model.
