The LLS provides the basis for the didactic thinking in PresentPastFuture. The most important pedagogical theories and didactical framework for learning in PresentPastFuture are integrated into the ten pillars of Living Learning System (LLS) developed by Woodgate (2018). The social constructive and the connectivistic approaches have been important theories in the making of the subject.
“The LLS builds on ten underlying learner platforms, namely, 1) each student learns to his/her strategy – personal relevance, 2) alternative thinking techniques are critical, 3) technology enhanced immersive exposure and interaction, 4) optimized ZPD transitioning, 5) open communication, 6) opportunities for constant testing and enhancement of individual competencies, 7) technology supported learning, 8) increased creativity (input and output), 9) freestyle delivery of assignments, 10) contribution to the course design and progression” (Woodgate, 2018, p. 7).
