People may have knowledge to handle a certain situation; however, often they might not be able to perform their behaviour well when encountering the actual situation. There are knowledge-to-action gaps that make ones do not aware the existing knowledge and act improperly. This research aims to motivate learner to become aware of their thought by proposing 1) a learning model using “surprise” as a trigger for motivating learner to realize their thinking process; and 2) a Relax-Half-Baked Microworld and its decision-making model which are used as a simulated environment. Learners could modify parameters, anticipate expected outcomes and compare observed simulated outcomes with their expected ones. Learners would feel surprise from unexpected results in the comparison, and used it to reflect their thought and to be aware of how did they make decision.
