Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review


Learning is an active process clearly distinguished from simply being taught. Active involvement in learning helps learners build knowledge in their heads, which is one of the key issues advocated by constructivists. However, learners still need other kinds of help that instructivists might suggest. Not all learners can always be active. They sometimes meet an impasse they cannot resolve by themselves. What they need is not the extreme paradigms but a mild and friendly paradigm that enables them to be active when they want to and help and guide them when necessary. Such a paradigm needs sophisticated intelligence.
