What is knowledge building (KB)?

A second theory of learning integral to the instructional design of Through My Window is called knowledge building (KB).  In KB, students collaborate and share ideas to promote deeper group understanding of relevant, open-ended problems and questions—like the kinds of questions engineers face in real world.  With KB, students learn through discourse that all ideas are valuable and diverse perspectives key to solving these complex questions.
