Effective learning CONSTRUCTIVISM
Empoweringis really what teaching is all about. Ironically, though, many teachers act as if empowering students means weakening themselves--their authority as both a classroom disciplinarian and a subject-matter authority. But maybe power is like love: the more you give, the more you get.
IN PRACTISE ? HOW DOES IT WORK ? • New ideas – CONNECT - topreviousknowledge • Modelling of acomplextaskandindicatetolearnersthePROCESShowto do it in order tobecomeindependent • “SCAFFOLDING” tobuild.

The DEVELOPMENTAL PHASES and the PREPAREDNESS of the child is very important when you make a choice about the types of methods you will apply as well as the SOPHISTICATION of the type of media you will use.
PRE OPERATIONAL PHASE (12-OLDER) • Create different situations for a specific situation in a systematic manner • Imagine, create, • Analyze
What must the teacher do? • Vgotsky • Zone of proximal development • Gap • Collaboration • Accommodating all learners (Who ? Why? ) • Compare constructivist approach, OBE, NCS
