The purpose of this study was to examine the impact of a problem-based hypermedia learning environment on sixth graders’ performance and attitudes. We were interested in finding the ways hypermedia technology could be used as cognitive tools to share the responsibilities of teachers to provide necessary scaffolding to support students’ learning in a problem-based learning (PBL) environment. Of particular interest to this study was to understand if non-gifted students could succeed in a PBL… CONTINUE READING
