Constructionism (learning theory)

Paradigm Shifts in Designed Instruction: Early childhood education series. Constructivism in Science Education. This study also found that inquiry-based constguctivisme methods greatly reduced the achievement gap for African-American students. Historical Foundations of Educational Psychology. Teaching “at” students is replaced by assisting them to understand—and help one another to understand—problems in a hands-on way.

Learners should constantly be challenged with tasks that refer to skills and knowledge just beyond their current level of mastery. In museum educationconstructivist theories inform exhibit design.

Approaches based on constructivism stress the importance of mechanisms for mutual planning, diagnosis of learner needs and interests, cooperative learning climate, sequential activities for achieving the objectives, formulation of learning objectives based on the cknstructivisme needs and interests.

Papert’s ideas became well known through the publication of his seminal book Mindstorms: Everyone is expected to contribute by using these skills. Social constructivism thus emphasizes the importance of the learner being actively involved in the learning process, unlike previous educational viewpoints where the responsibility rested with the instructor to teach and where the learner played a passive, receptive role.

Authentic assessment Criterion-referenced test Norm-referenced test High school graduation examination. There are many flavors of constructivism, but one prominent theorist is Jean Piagetwho focused on how humans make meaning in relation to the interaction between their experiences and their ideas. Learners look for meaning and will try to find regularity and order in the events of the world even in the absence of full or complete information.


Constructionist learning is when learners construct mental models to understand the world around them.

A further characteristic of the role of the facilitator in the social constructivist viewpoint, is that the instructor and the learners are equally involved in learning from each other as well. If students have to present and train new contents with their classmates, a non-linear process of collective knowledge-construction will be set up.

Archived from the original PDF on A manifesto for a constructivist approach to uses of technology in higher education. While constructionism has, due to its impetus, been primarily used in science and mathematics teaching in the form of inquiry-based scienceit is arguable that it developed in a different form in the field of media studies in which students often engage with media theory and practice simultaneously in a complementary praxis.

The primary differentiation from the traditional approach being that the engagement of the students in their learning makes them more receptive to learning things at an appropriate time, rather than on a preset schedule. Knowledge should not be divided into different subjects or compartments, but should be discovered as an integrated whole. Then it awakens and rouses to life an entire set of functions in the stage of maturing, which lie in the zone of proximal development.

Historical developments and symbol systems, such as language, logicand mathematical systemsare inherited by the learner as a member of a particular culture and these are learned throughout the learner’s life.

Constructivism and the Technology of Instruction: In contrast, when individuals’ experiences contradict their internal representations, they may change their perceptions of the experiences to fit their internal representations. The constructionist teacher takes on a mediational role rather than adopting an instructional role.

In the seminal European SchoolNet research where for the first time academics were testing out how the internet could support classroom practice and pedagogy, experts from a number of countries set up test situations to generate and understand new possibilities for educational practice.

He identified processes of assimilation and accommodation that are key in this interaction as individuals construct new knowledge from their experiences. Anders; Glaser, Robert By experiencing the successful completion of challenging tasks, learners gain confidence and motivation to embark on more complex challenges.

Several educators have also questioned the effectiveness of this approach toward instructional design, especially as it applies to the development of instruction for novices [7] [42] While some constructivists argue that “learning by doing” enhances learning, critics of this instructional strategy argue that little empirical evidence exists to support this statement given novice learners. Discussion skills are important. This also stresses the importance of the nature of the learner’s social interaction with knowledgeable members of the society.

In so far as there is any evidence from controlled studies, it almost uniformly supports direct, strong instructional guidance rather constructivist-based minimal guidance during the instruction of novice to intermediate learners.
