SBL Interactive (SBLi) scenarios are created to provide a learning environment focused on a specific problem or realm of enquiry. Scenarios can be used to make users aware of the issues that need to be considered in addressing a specific type of problem; testing their diagnostic skills in determining the cause of a specific problem and what to do about it; or providing a case study that requires the user to engage in a range of tasks.
Scenarios can be distrubuted online or via CD. You can publish your scenarios here.
SBLi scenarios provide problem based and enquiry based learning experiences for students and users of all ages. SBLi provides the ability to create an interactive scenario which allows students or other users to explore different locations and environments and take various actions in attempting to resolve a problem or enquiry. The learning experience gained by interacting with scenarios in this way can help users to -
- Appreciate the concepts, principles and knowledge required to successfully understand, diagnose and or resolve a problem or enquiry.
- Engage in the process of critical thinking and problem diagnosis, involving iterative cycles of enquiry, reflection, and hypothesis generation.
- Understand the interconnectedness of the disciplines and issues involved in an ill-structured problem, with all its complexity.
If scenarios are linked to resource materials (such as web links, Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, library resources, etc.), users will also be able to explore a number of information sources, opening up multiple ways of obtaining information and knowledge.
