How to Design Engaging Educational Solutions?

Research output: Other contributionResearch

Abstract

The aim of this white paper is to examine the key components in designing good educational solutions. In this paper, we define a framework to guide educational solution design processes from the viewpoint of educational psychology. More precisely, we present the key components in designing a quality educational solution, as well as a pedagogical model, that can be used as the framework in design. Well-designed educational solutions have the power to foster or even
transform goal-oriented learning pursuits, but not without good pedagogical design. Therefore, the design process should take into account the research on learning and pedagogy and pursue to implement good practices in order to promote and support learning. This can be achieved by designing solutions to implement a pedagogical model such as the engaging learning model. We conclude that instead of developing the most popular product, learning solution design should focus on trying to identify the goals and find the best way to help students of all ages and levels reach them.
