How can one bring cognitive apprenticeship into the virtual world? This chapter addresses how to construct a 3D online digital environment that supports the methods of cognitive apprenticeship. As technology rapidly evolves, there has been an increased demand for more interactive and more flexible simulated learning environments that can go beyond the limits of conventional instruction. When carefully designed, a 3D online digital simulation can allow teachers and learners to share and compare their cognitive techniques. By gaining access to experts’ “hidden” skills, learners can better develop thinking and learning strategies that are applicable to real-world situations. This chapter discusses how to design cognitive apprenticeship tasks in a 3D online digital world.
