Technology Enhanced Learning Video Series S01E02: Dr. Tak Wai Chan
Dr. Didith Rodrigo talks to Dr. Tak-Wai Chan about his research on the Interest-Driven Creation or IDC Theory. IDC hypothesizes that students, driven by interest, can be engaged in the creation of knowledge. Building a habit of repeating this knowledge creation process in students’ daily learning practices can have positive effects on their learning performance as well as help them develop twenty-first century skills. Dr. Tak-Wai Chan explains the “habit loop”, a part of IDC which is composed of environment, routine, and harmony. He also talks about how educators can help students form this habit loop and why student satisfaction is an important component of the habit loop.
Dr. Tak-Wai Chan is Chair Professor of the Graduate Institute of Network Learning Technology at National Central University in Taiwan. His research interests include artificial intelligence in education, computer supported collaborative learning, digital classrooms, and technology supported mathematics and language arts learning, among others. Dr. Chan is one of the founding fathers of the Asia Pacific Society for Computers in Education and is an APSCE fellow.
Technology-Enhanced Learning is a joint production of the Ateneo Laboratory for the Learning Sciences and the Asia Pacific Society for Computers in Education.
