Abstract

A solid theoretical foundation is essential for designing effective educational technology. However, different theories may offer competing recommendations, and it is important to balance multiple theoretical perspectives in technology design. In this poster paper, we describe how a systematic review methodology, traditionally used in the medical field, can be applied in a learning sciences context to identify student behaviors and learning conditions that are beneficial to learning. We present the process and early results by examining the overlap and discrepancies between knowledge building and inquiry learning theories as they relate to pedagogical best practices.
