Constructivist Way • Here, technology helps the learner build more meaningful personal interpretations of life and his/her world. • Technology is a “learning tool to learn with, not from”. • It makes the learner gather, think, analyze, synthesize information and construct meaning with what technology presents. • Technology serves as a medium in representing what the learner knows what he/she is learning.
  5. 5. Roles of technology in learning based on the Constructivist perspective: • Technology as tools to support knowledge construction. • Technology as information vehicles for exploring knowledge to support learning –by-constructing. • Technology as “context to support learning-by-doing”. • Technology as a “social medium” to support learning by conversing • Technology as “intellectual partners” to support learning-by-reflecting.
