integrated scaffolding model in communities

May 23, 2013


Here is the mapping of different aspects of an integrated scaffolding model of Learning layers project in semantic adaptive support systems:

I. Scaffolded learning perspective considers interactions of the learner with scaffolds provided by the community

II. Distributed cognition perspective considers the cognitive aspect of learning in the community settings

III. Community knowledge perspective deals with the formation of the resources that can be used for learning and for providing scaffolding

Particularly interesting is that this model focuses on the emergent nature of the scaffolds in the community.
