    • Constructivism:• “is based on a type of learning in which the learner forms, or constructs, much of what he or she learns or comprehends”• Focus on active participation in lessons l
    • What is it?• Constructivism is about building upon prior experiences to create knowledge• Students are actively engaged and creating• Teacher based lecturing can still be considered constructivism – As long as the student is actively connecting what they are learning to past experiences – This is called “scaffolding”, building knowledge from previous knowledge
    • Constructivists• John Dewey• Jerome Bruner• Lev Vygotsky• Jean Piaget
    • John Dewey QuickTimeª and a decompressor are needed to see this picture.• John Dewey is known as the father of progressive education• His philosophy had emphasis on experiential learning• He wanted to make students well rounded “physically, mentally and socially” – To be active contributors in the community
    • In the Classroom• Teachers can create lesson plans where students are: – Creating – Collaborating – Connecting past experiences with new knowledge
    • My Opinion• I believe that constructive learning theory is effective! – Teachers keep students interested and stimulated throughout the lesson – Students retain information better when learning hands-on • Teachers can use software programs like Inspiration to: Have students participate in the lesson Visually organize what they are learning
