Transcript

  • 1. By Sarah B
  • 2. Constructivism: What is it?Jean Piaget Piaget’s Cognitive StagesJerome Bruner Bruner’s Spiral CurriculumConstructivism in the classroom The Socratic MethodMy educational philosophy
  • 3.  “Ihear and forget. I see and remember. I do and I understand.”-ConfuciusA learner never comprehends something “from scratch,” but learns new information by relating it to information they already know Students form what they learn or comprehend by active engagement
  • 4.  Piagetbelieved that children and adults think very differently Hebelieved that children were natural, active learners and did not need motivation from adults to learn
  • 5.  Piagetbelieved that children were constructing new knowledge as the moved through different cognitive stages, building on information they already knew
  • 6.  Proposed that learning is an active process Believed that the learner constructed new ideas or concepts based on their current knowledge Constructivist learners are participatory learners
  • 7.  Constructivismemphasizes an integrated curriculum where students learn a subject through varying ways and activities
  • 8.  Students actively engaged in a variety of activities which build of knowledge that already have
  • 9.  Example: Students studying the parts of a flower by researching using books, videos, and digital media.  Drawing the parts of a flower  Reading about the parts of a flower  Looking at a physical flower  Working in groups
  • 10.  Teachersshould encourage students to discover concepts on their own Teachers should engage students by guiding them through activities which create opportunities for discussion Use the Socratic Method
  • 11.  When students learn how to analyze problems Students are able to think critically about their view and the opinions of others Students can articulate and defend their position
  • 12. My teaching philosophy: I believe, much like Jerome Bruner, that teachers should actively engage students in their own learning Childrennaturally enjoy learning; teachers need only to appropriately foster that drive for students to be successful
  • 13.  Students should work collaboratively, to gain insight on the perspectives of othersI can integrate technology into my classroom to help support constructivism and engage learning too!  Digital learning games  Electronic group presentations  Various videos, digital media, and Websites
