Abstract: Promoting active participation among learnersfur meaningful learning with technology has been a challenging task for many educators. This paper presents an engaged learning model based on studies on E-Learning and distance learning, as well as cognitive and constructivist pedagogies. We propose the SMART (student, motivation, activities, regulation and management, and technology)framework, which details five important dimensions for designing and implementing learning with technology. Using the SMART approach, a case study was conducted on 18 trainee teachers who went through a blended instruction on designing constructivist learning activities. Results show that engaged learning was achieved when trainees participated actively in class and in online forums, developed constructive ideas, engaged in reflective thinking, set learning goals and displayed dispositions towards a constructivist approach of instruction.
