About the thesis: Students Using Online Collaborative Tools in Problem-Oriented Project-Based Learning
This research starts by presenting an overview of how students in Problem-Oriented Project-Based Learning adopt online communication tools. The research reveals the behaviour of students individually, and socially in their groups, in relation to their attitudes towards adoption of communication tools. From the data, the researcher established that a weak division of labour in a project group better enables learning than a strong division; tasks are undertaken collaboratively rather than individually; thus, all members gain from involvement in all aspects of the project.
The defence is followed by a reception.
Everybody is welcome!
