A Constructivist view of Edcuational Technology : 

A Constructivist view of Edcuational Technology

Constructivism definition : 

Constructivism definition a theory of knowledge that argues that humans generate knowledge and meaning from an interaction between their experiences and their ideas

Constructivism Learning Theory : 

Constructivism Learning Theory promotes active learning, or learning by doing, often called discovery learning is not a particular pedagogy is a theory describing how learning happens as we encounter something new, we have to merge it with our previous ideas and experience, maybe changing what we believe, or maybe discarding the new information as irrelevant.

Constructivist Teachers : 

Constructivist Teachers encourage students to assess how the activity is helping them gain understanding students become “expert learners” asks good questions uses inquiry, collaborative learning, and multiple intelligences

How Students Learn Best : 

How Students Learn Best Below is a list of different methods of learning. The percentages listed represent the average amount of information that is retained through that particular learning method. Note what method produces the highest retention rate. Lecture = 5% Reading = 10% Audiovisual = 20% Demonstration = 30% Discussion Group = 50% Practice by doing = 75% Teach others / immediate use of learning = 90%

Jean Piaget : 

Jean Piaget integrated both behavior and cognitive aspects in one developmental theory suggested that through processes of accommodation and assimilation, individuals construct new knowledge from their experiences Accomodation is learning from experience from failure.

Piaget : 


Vygotsky : 

Vygotsky was concerned with social interaction and social context He states that "Every function in the child's cultural development appears twice: first, on the social level, and later, on the individual level.” known for the Zone of Proximal Development- the range of skill that can be developed with adult guidance

Bruner’s View : 

Bruner’s View learning is an active process in which learners construct new ideas based upon their current and past knowledge Teachers should be able to change the materials to be learned so that it suits the learners’ cognitive level.

Bruner : 

Bruner Bruner (1966) states that a theory of instruction should address four major aspects: 1 predisposition towards learning 2 the ways in which a body of knowledge can be structured so that it can be most readily grasped by the learner 3 the most effective sequences in which to present material 4 the nature and pacing of rewards and punishments

Robert Gagné : 

Robert Gagné believes that learning results in behavior changes that are observable Outcomes are descriptions of educational goals in terms of what is to be accomplished through the prescribed learning activities. focuses on memory and how to plan curriculum in chunks so memory is not overloaded
