D-Move: Ten Years Experience with a Learning Environment for Digital Natives

Otto Petrovic


D-Move is a learning environment for Digital Natives, composed of different software modules and learning methods, mainly based on constructivist-connectivist learning theories. Digital Natives have the Internet as their mother tongue and probably require different learning approaches. D-Move started more than ten years ago with the aim to reach learning objectives in settings that are part of Digital Natives’ everyday life. The article shows the results of three different phases: Text messaging, multi-channel support and finally, expansion by a Delphi-based research environment.
