Teachers have a sphere of knowledge that they want to insert into the minds of their students

CONSTRUCTIVISTS

The sphere is created inside the mind of the student by creating a learning environment


Definition l.jpg

Definition

  • Constructivism is a philosophy of learning founded on the premise that, by reflecting on our experiences, we color and construct our own understanding of the world we live in


Definition4 l.jpg

Definition

  • Each of us generates "rules" to make sense of our experiences

  • Learning is adjusting our rules to accommodate new experiences

  • Students can learn different meanings from the same lesson


Definition5 l.jpg

Definition

  • No knowledge can be transferred intact from one individual to another


Definition6 l.jpg

Definition

  • Information received is reshaped inside the learner’s mind to fitwithin his or her frame of reference

Issues


How does learning occur l.jpg

How does learning occur?

  • The learner creates meaning from experience. The mind filters input from the external world to create its own singular version of reality

  • Teachers must start from where the students are to align learning with existing states of mind


Which factors influence learning l.jpg

Which factors influence learning?

  • Learning is a search for meaning

  • Learning must start with the issues around which students are actively trying to construct meaning

  • Meaning requires understanding wholes as well as parts


What is the role of memory l.jpg

What is the role of memory?

  • Constructivists view memory as the repository not for intact knowledge, but for flexible threads of information that can be reorganized in an unending variety of ways


How does transfer occur l.jpg

How does transfer occur?

  • Transfer can occur by involving learners in authentic tasks anchored within a meaningful context


What types of learning are best explained by this theory l.jpg

What types of learning are best explained by this theory?

  • Not best for introductory knowledge

  • Not best for rote memorization of rules and facts


What types of learning are best explained by this theory16 l.jpg

What types of learning are best explained by this theory?

  • However, for advanced knowledge acquisition, this learning theory works quite well

  • There are no preconceived limitations. The student is free to create their own construct


What basic assumptions principles are relevant to instructional design l.jpg

What basic assumptions/principles are relevant to instructional design?

  • Educators focus on making connections between facts and fostering new understanding in students


How to structure instruction l.jpg

How to structure instruction?

  • Tailor strategies to student responses

  • Encourage analysis, interpretation, prediction

  • Use open-ended questions and discussion

  • Connect past experiences with new learning

  • Use project-based learning

  • Use problem-based learning


How to evaluate l.jpg

How to evaluate?

  • Learners to construct their own meaning, no memorized "right" answers; no regurgitation

  • Formative assessment ensures students are learning during the process

  • Use holistic evaluation


How to evaluate20 l.jpg

How to evaluate?

  • Constructivism calls for the elimination of grades and standardized testing
