Transcript

  • 1. Learning as an active process Matthew Neason
  • 2. Constructivism Ideology
    • Learners are information constructors
    • Information is not acquired,
    • it is modified to fit a
    • subjective reality
    • Diverges into cognitive and
    • social elements
  • 3. Social Constructivism
    • A theory introduced by Lev  Vygotsky
    • Development is culturally relevant and influenced by all social interactions
    • Learning is collaborative and dependent upon social success
    • Teaching utilized a guided learning approach
    • The importance of knowledge is determined by social interaction
  • 4. Cognitive contructivism
    • Theory given merit by Jean Piaget
    • Classrooms are to be filled with fascinating objects to provoke exploration
    • Learning is active
    • Learning is wholistic
    • Focus on introspection and individual perception
  • 5. Intelligence
    • Constructivists find the I.Q. system to paint an incomplete picture
    • Multiple intelligences working together
    • Developed by Gardner (Cognitive theorist)
    • Linguistic
    • Logical
    • Spatial
    • Kinesthetic
    • Musical
    • Interpersonal
    • Intrapersonal
    • Naturalist
  • 6. Learning development
    • Piaget believed that children go through discrete stages of development
    • Dewey observed different levels of “The thinking Ladder”
    • Learning and cognitive development are both constructed by the learner and guided by the teacher
  • 7. Teaching as a constructivist
    • Learning occurs in a meaningful context, skills must not stand alone
    • Teachers act as coaches as well as dispensers of knowledge
    • Teachers lay a foundation and watch students build on it
  • 8. Constructivist Students
    • Gather knowledge and incorporate it into their own subjective reality
    • Gain insight into matters by applying socially relevant information
    • Learning is a continuous process of re-evaluation and synthesis of new perspectives
  • 9. Reflection
    • Constructivist learning theory has many boons for educational reform, yet cannot stand alone. Constructivist doctrine can be incorporated into any classroom and for me specifically it represents a bold move towards student centered education. This learning theory leaves the instructor considerable freedom to incorporate a varied multimedia curriculum that appeals to multiple intelligences and learning styles.
