Abstract

Poor traditional learning methods have been a main concern in learning and teaching activity. These traditional methods (“talk and chalk”) is being replaced by online learning, it helps students to get all the knowledge using diversified tools, it places the student at the centre of the educational process rather than the teacher, and the role of the teacher is to improve their skills, and promote research and curiosity to seek the information, and then analyse, evaluate and use it. Generally school-based learning (SBL) and laboratory-based learning (LBL) activities are delivered via a blended learning approach. The novel framework includes an e-learning package which enables the development and improvement of students’ ICT skills, digital age literacy, inventive and higher-order thinking before they attend the practical lab sessions. The proposed pedagogical approach will enable the current generation of students to be better prepared for a workplace where computers, the Internet and related technologies, are becoming more and more ubiquitous.
