The professional learning resources on the promotion of student cognitive engagement are based on the ICAP (Interactive, Constructive, Active, Passive) Theoretical framework, developed by Chi & Wiley, 2014. The include two Modules that describe the theory and its application in the classroom and several video-based activities for teachers. The first Module presents a simple, easy to understand description of the ICAP theory.
It is accompanied by a read power point presentation that further elaborates the ICAP theory and explain how it is connected to brain processes taking place during learning. The second Module presents a framework for applying the ICAP theory to real classroom teaching. It is accompanied by two videos — one of a mathematics lesson and one of a biology lesson — and describes an ICAP coding system that can be used on transcripts of these lessons to evaluate the effects of instruction on student cognitive engagement.
