This essay reports on an investigation of an integrative solution to facilitating cooperative learning for net generation learners in a technology-rich environment. Of specific interest is the changing roles of learners and educators as well as the enabling role of technology. The case study investigated and utilised to compile this dissertation is the Earthly Aliens Theme Day. Data obtained by interviewing and observing Theme Day participants is utilised to support the answers of the research questions.
The research results of this study have shown that St Alban's College successfully managed to implement computer-integrated Theme Days. The College broke the barriers between subjects; learners participated in a learning experience that is closer to reality than just another 'thumb suck' educational experience. The concept of group work has been introduced to learners, and they are allowed to be creative, lateral thinkers and problem solvers.
A small committee of learners gained managerial skills, while College graduates who are entering the job market are equipped with the necessary cross-curricular life skills to cope in today's technological advanced world
