[edit] Abstract

Innovative learning activities, based on constructivism, were applied in the courses for students of Computer science at the Faculty of Education. We observed students' learning behaviour as well as their actions, preferences, and learning patterns in different stages of learning process, supported by the e-learning environment. Students engaged in all these activities had an opportunity to develop competences for team work and collaborative learning. Active and collaborative forms of learning were used to facilitate higher order thinking skills and to develop assessment skills. We used Bloom's Digital Taxonomy to analyse the usage of digital tools which facilitate different phases of learning. Active and collaborative forms of learning, such as mini-performances supported by workshop, autonomous learning supported by video-content with interactive questions and answers, collaborative editing of wikis with peer assessment, pair programming, explorative learning, discovery learning, reflections, self-reflections, and creation of exercises for knowledge assessment are used to facilitate higher order thinking skills.
