The constructive teacher Is an active participant in communication exchange as both lecturer and listener. Harbors a creative learning environment. Allows open interpretation and insemination of information and facts. Presents curriculum in a manner that is beneficial to all learning styles. Conforms to the needs of student adaptation.
The constructive student Responds to the teacher and peer group through social networking/open forum. Engages in exploratory learning built upon personal interests. Is subjective to various educational view points. Takes ownership of individualized learning. Shares in the role of teacher instruction.
Reflection Constructivist practices are an excellent complement and are appropriate to the advent of curriculum integration for the current generation of students. Since technology is a powerful tool and source for navigating many topics of interest, students must have a strong capacity for manipulating and controlling the basis for the direction in which they learn. Profound cognitive development that is autodidactic in nature, shows better results in creating value and efficiency for future and lifelong learning.
