Learning Design - 2a

In Learning Design - 2, I have left out a significant part of the idea.

I briefly touched on the learning environment which I define as "the situation at which learning occurs". In many cases, the learning environment is just a classroom. The teacher is in control and usually is presenting information. Learners are as passive listener trying to absorb as much as possible the information presented to them. However, it is NOT the only possible learning environment. Learning environment may model the community. Artificial, or simulated environment may be created to support. Learners are given roles, scenarios and episodes so that learners can “feel” being a member of the community.
