Matthewneason constructivists

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