This book reflects on existing literature about self-discovery learning and what learners need in terms of scaffolding to help them make the right decisions, assess their own level of learning, vet information strategically, collaborate with other learners, and build their own skill sets.

  • Automated Discovery Learning
  • Guided Discovery Learning
  • Human Perception and Discovery Learning
  • Immersive Environments
  • Problem Solving Through Self-Discovery
  • Self-Assessment and Planning

Reviews and Testimonials

This book shows that a majority of people use the Internet for informal discovery learning and simple problem-solving. There's much more of human endeavors that may be supported with some adjustments to the site and information and user-interface designs of various Web spaces and Internet-related. This text offers a look at the design of online spaces for self-discovery learners' acquisition of information, knowledge, and skill sets.
