Abstract

This paper presents a pilot research study that aims to examine the suitability of techno-pedagogical design in a specific teaching sequence. Currently, this pilot research study is being developed in the subject of Educational Psychology at the University of Andorra. Students should resolve individual and group issues by creating and customizing their personal working and learning environment (PWLE) following the Problem-based learning (PBL) methodology. As a basic tool of PWLE we used the open source software Elgg. Each student has the opportunity to choose and use different tools and services which they consider most appropriate to solve the problems raised on the subject. Also Elgg has allowed us to create working groups with different tools. Together, these groups and the students of PWLE have become the virtual learning community (VLC) in the course on Educational Psychology.
