Gagne’s theory of instruction include three components:
(Reiser & Demposey, 2007, p. 41)
According to Nejdi & Tochtermann (2006) “Gagne’s theory is information ـــ processing theory, so its goal is not only for getting attention but for directing attention to that which is to be learned” (p. 165).
Taxonomy of learning outcomes that determine the capacity of humans to learn Internal and external learning conditions related to learning outcomes Nin events of instruction simplify and enhance the cognitive process through learning
Gagne’s Instructional Theory 2. Information the learner of the objective. 1. Gaining attention. 3. Providing learning guidance. 5. Presenting the stimulus. 6. Eliciting performance. 8. Assessing performance. 9. Enhancing retention and transfer. 4. Stimulating recall of prior learning. 7. Providing feedback. (Reiser & Demposey, 2007, p.41)
constructivist theory based learner to build his/her own knowledge thought experience and information prior (Tobias & Duffy, 2009, p. 188).
Foundations of constructivist theory focuses on
Construction of knowledge itself and not transfer the information directly to the student Environment and society are part of knowledge construction.. Experiences and prior knowledge whether the concept wrong or correct. (Reiser & Demposey, 2007, p. 42)

The learning environment is the place where the learner feels comfortable safety and support both the means and technical devices to allow the learner’s individual learning opportunities and learning in groups. This environment create activity, cooperation, schema, innovation, access to the concepts themselves. This environment is an integrated environment in terms of learner and teacher.
