  • 1. Created by Mr. Thab Chanthorn Educational theories play a significant role in education, which can provide learners cognitive learning while they’re pursing their degree in academic life. There’re many beliefs that are created by philosophers such as postmodernism, constructivism, realism, sexism, eclecticism, existentialism, and so on, which can usefully facilitate learners how to adjudicate the reality in both learning and society. Anyways, among of these theories, I would like to distinguish the postmodernism and constructivism since they are really confusing. In postmodernism theory, a general and wide-ranging term is applied to literature, art, philosophy, architecture, fiction, and cultural and literal criticism. Postmodernism is largely a relation to the certain scientific, object to explain reality, which comes from one generation to one generation. In essence, it’s not simply mirrored in human understand, yet it constructed as the mind tries to understand its own particular reality. Moreover, post modernism relies on concrete experience and development, knowing always the outcome of one’s own experience will necessarily be fallible and relative. Constructivism is the notion that meaning is imposed to one world rather than extant in it. In constructivism is also focuses on a real world we experience, yet the meaning exist in that world need to be discovered by us. Constructivists believe that we impose meaning on it. They think that meaning is constructed in our mind as we interact with physical, social, and mental worlds. Thus, constructivism refers to a set of psychological theory that share common assumption about knowing and learning or about what it has existed in the present. Based on the theories above, we can differentiate that constructivism covers on the postmodernism. The main difference, in my estimation, is that postmodernism is concerned
  • 2. Created by Mr. Thab Chanthorn with the power exchange all human interaction and action. For example, a feminist who is trying to demonstrate the male hegemony in a certain text or society is postmodernism while a philosopher who insists that we create actual world by deciding between two comparable theories is constructivism. In other words, if one is taking about human and the relation they are postmodernism and if they are talking about we live in or create then that same person is constructivism. In conclusion, both postmodernism and constructivism should be applied in Cambodia context of education. Even though they are quite similar, they can really facilitate learners’ thinking by following the theories, and put them in to the real life. By learning through these theories, cognitive learning will be named as a useful strategy to study.
