Design based learning is combining pedagogy with technology to help transfer information to the student in a more understandable medium to create true understanding. It is not simply learning the newest and latest programs but working with them to create a design that would combine the knowledge of the system with the creativity and innovation built within the student. The basis of this system is not showing but having students work through the process together in order to work collaboratively. As we learn technology we use it to further our understanding our own subject matter. It provides open discussion between teachers and students in order to facilitate learning on both sides.
