VaKE – Values and Knowledge Education

Online constructivist learning and discussion of value issues

Values and Knowledge Education is an innovative educational model that places values at the centre of constructivist learning processes. The model has been developed at the Department of Education of the University of Salzburg and used since several years in different educational face-to-face settings. In the VaKE project a Wiki-based platform is developed that supports the model both for individual and collaborative learning. Furthermore for VaKE-online didactical materials for teachers and trainers are developed. The online platform and materials will be evaluated by test users from Austrian universities of education and schools.
