Thank you for your suggestions. I myself am not familiar with the concept of performance task that Prof. Vicharn mentioned.
Being in scholastic circle, though, I think we ought not to jump into new theories too fast. My concern, since my undergrad when "re-engineering" emerged, is that most of these theories are very much a recycling from the old ones. As I mentioned in this post, sometime I get frustrated when I learned that many of these theories are right at home, yet I traveled thousand miles to learn.
Take any theory, make a little spin, then you get a new one. For instance, situated learning (around 1991) is similar to PBL. Critical thinking (been around for more than a century) can be found in myriads of theories. Even the notion of 21st century learning skills is a repackaging of various theories and concepts, focusing on "change." The list could go on and on... In my opinion, finding evident to support a theory is more important and this could take decades.
I know I'm being skeptical about these theories ;)
Well, I still don't have time to revisit the 2nd part of this blog post yet. The new semester is just around the corner and it's getting hectic. Hopefully I will have time soon and we can talk more.
In my humble opinion, I prefer Thai comments in this blog, mainly because we aim to create knowledge and share information for Thai netizen. I myself tried to translate terms and jargon into Thai, frankly it's difficult sometimes ...
Thanks again, for visiting my little blog.
