PROJECT-BASED COLLABORATIVE LEARNING WITH ARGUMENTS - Flexible Integration of Digital Resources

Gert Faustmann

Abstract

Success in project-based learning strongly depends on the experience of the project participants. Experienced learners often develop results that are not understood by less experienced participants. In this situation arguments can show the solution’s approach by connecting parts of the given task with individual results. By using digital documents of arbitrary format it is possible to build a flexible net of arguments for the whole project. This paper describes an approach to integrate arguments with project-based learning and shows how to realize the use of digital resources in a web-based learning platform.
