Abstract

We are living in the knowledge age that privileges knowledge production rather than knowledge consumption. The production, dissemination and reproduction of knowledge are catalyzed by the proliferation of digital media in our lives. To prepare our students for the challenges in this knowledge age, we introduced knowledge building pedagogy that is supported by Knowledge Forum, an online discussion forum. This case study research is on how the incorporation of knowledge building principles for learning of Science will engage students in developing deeper understanding of science concepts. This research involved 66 Primary Three students of mixed ability. Concept cartoon is used as a trigger to promote deep questioning for science lessons.
