Literature Review Purpose: Can active learning strategies increase student engagement and overall achievement in my ICT classes as NIPA? CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK Factors that affect student engagement. Strategies used: Active learning, problem based learning. (Waschke, 2015) Active Learning THEORETICAL FRAMEWORK Theory: Constructivist Theory, Experiential Learning Theory, Social Constructivist, Vygotsky’s Zone of Proximal Development Description: A major theme in the constructivist theoretical framework of Bruner is that learning is an active process in which learners construct new ideas or concepts based upon their current/past knowledge. Application: STRATEGIES FOR COLLECTING DATA Baseline Data: School Records (Attendance), Grade Results, School Dropouts (Observation, Surveys) Artifacts: Memos, Reports, Records, and Test Results Observations: Field Notes (Lack of Attention, Focus) Attitude, Checklist, Photos Inquiry: Pre Questionnaire/Survey: Interview Keep a research diary/journal, share experience of the intervention process.
