Abstract: The project aims to design a constructivist learning environment (CLE). The learning problem of the CLE is global warming. The pedagogical model of CLE is cognitive flexible hypertext (CFH) which promotes learning in complex, authentic and ill-structured domain. Therefore, the knowledge domain of global warming is interdisciplinary. The target audience of CFH are high school seniors. The design includes learning activities, learning outcomes and assessment that aligns to CFH principles. Students will explore the dilemma of the global warming individually, and there are blogs require collaborative learning in some activities.
