Modeling Domain Knowledge
Educators evaluate on how much you know, but often it is how you know something that is moreimportant (Jonassen, 2006, p. 39).Primary rationale (Jonassen, 2006, p. 39)
Acquiring domain knowledge is a prerequisite to learning how to use that knowledgeAssumption:
It is necessary to know about ideas before it is possible to apply that knowledge (39)Contemporary learning theorist’s argument
Domain knowledge that is acquired without applying it in some authentic context ismeaningless (Jonassen, 2006, p. 39).“Chapter argues that using mind tools for building models of domain knowledge will help thelearners to acquire (comprehend and retain) that knowledge more effectively than traditionalmethods” (Jonassen, 2006, p. 40).Educators have promoted using learning strategies such as note taking and summarizing.Mind tool simply represent a new class of learning strategies, and when students use these toolsto build models they will understand their subject better and retain the information longer (Jonassen, 2006, p. 40)
