Thoe, Ng Khar – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2007
Instructional strategies determine the approaches an educator may take to achieve learning objectives. Research has shown that sets of strategies or instructional models anchored on social constructivist learning theories were found to be effective in enhancing active participation. It is particularly influential and meaningful in many areas of…
