Generally, there has been an inadequate research of the application of various models for learning for example the Kolb’s experiential learning cycle to the development of e-learning materials. As such, the TSOI Hybrid Learning Model can be used as a pedagogic model for the design of e-learning in science education for engaged learning. This Model is hybridized from the Piagetian Science Learning Cycle Model and the Kolb’s Experiential Learning Cycle Model.
The TSOI Hybrid Learning Model represents learning as a cyclical cognitive process of four phases: Translating, Sculpting, Operationalizing, and Integrating. A major feature is to promote active cognitive processing in the learner for engaged learning proceeding from inductive to deductive Design specificity in the area of science education is illustrated in terms of instructional storyboarding and the research-based e-learning product developed. Learners’ cognitive abilities will be addressed as part of the research data collected.
