Principle 1—Problem-centered: Learning ispromoted when learners are engaged in solvingreal-world problems.
In my experience, this is a very powerful principle for learning.It can provide many variables that are not present in traditional learning environments:
* Authentic context * Complex problems * Real stakeholders * Authentic feedback from real stakeholders
Solving real-world problems can naturally lead to inter-disciplinary work and high levels of motivation if the student is allowed to pick a real world problem that is important for them.
