|Content Focused (Answer “What” Questions)||Process Driven (Answer “Why” and “How” questions)|
|Mistakes are avoided||Mistakes are embraced and learned from|
|Students are passive learners||Students are active learners|
|Learn from experts solely in a classroom||Learn from various sources in real world environments|
|Students answer a teacher’s questions||Students create their own questions and search for answers|
