teacher training, problem solving, metacognition, computer-assisted learning and instruction


The transition from a traditional group of physics teacher trainees into a learning community working on problem solving with advanced technology is dealt with. Two main components of problem solving are considered as a collaborative design process: the role of creative design in devising the solution, and the development of metacognitive reasoning skills to reflect on results and procedures. Then action learning is discussed and finally some remarks are made regarding the role of advanced technology in building and maintaining learning communities.
