+ What are the pedagogic principles Ligilo is based on?

1. Constructivism - Information items are built one on top of the other. Image your learning community constructing a huge Lego building:  New bricks can always be added, however they need to be placed such that the building continues, or, in other words, in context to other blocks.

 

2. Social Constructivism  - following Vygotsky and his followers, we believe that knowledge built collaboratively is the most rich and substantial way to learn. 

 

3. Organized Democracy - Ligilo enables a pluralist discussion which is framed and guided by the educator's skeleton and guidance.

 

4. Active Learning – because learning must be hands-on.

 

5. Critical thinking & reasoning – Traditional talkback is not suitable for learning. Using Ligilo, a user must read before reacting, and must think about the context he or she is adding to the discussion.

 

6. Visual aids - Ligilo enables its community members to view the "big picture" built by the community at any time, from any angle, visually assimilating the knowledge base developed in class.

+ Who is behind Ligilo?
