  1. 1. Source: http://www.thelearningcommunity.us/about-us/faqs.aspxCONSTRUCTIVISM Brittany P. Clare D. Courtney L. Samantha R. Jessica O. Nicole S.
  2. 2. KEY POINTSA theory based on the idea that students learn by doing A student builds and constructs what they know themselves using previous knowledge The instructor is there to translate information into a format that students can use and comprehend Is very broad and has several different versions  Radical constructivism, social constructivism, etc. Image source: http://dir.coolclips.com/Business/Metaphors_O_to_Z/Success_and_Ambition/Stairways_to_Success/building_blocks_vc020099.html
  3. 3. IMPORTANT CONSTRUCTIVISTSJean Piaget (1896-1980) Developed the cognitive learning theory after observing children for many years  Children learn by constructing new knowledge by building on what they already know Believed there were 4 stages children progressed through for learning  Sensorimotor: learning takes place through the child’s senses and motor actions  Preoperational: children use symbols and images using language symbols and play pretend games  Concrete Operational (age 7): children begin to think logically and learn facts  Formal Operational (age 12): children transition from concrete thinking to abstract thinking by forming hypotheses and understanding case and effect During these 4 stages children use adaptation, assimilation and accommodation  Adaptation: children’s cognitive understanding at a given time  Assimilation: children assimilate new knowledge and they experience new things  Accommodation: children take the new information and relate it to their previous knowledge to make sense of the world around them
  4. 4. IMPORTANT CONSTRUCTIVISTSJerome Bruner (1915- ) Proposed that learning is an active process where the learner constructs new ideas based on current/past knowledge Constructivist learners are participatory learners; actively engaged learners Children learn a subjects through doing different activities His constructivist theory provides a framework for the study of cognition  Cognition: a individual progresses though different intellectual stages
  5. 5. IMPORTANT CONSTRUCTIVISTSLev Vygotsky (1896-1934) Vygotsky’s Social Development Theory is one of the foundations of constructivism Three major themes in his theory:  Social interaction plays a fundamental role in the process of cognitive development  The More Knowledgeable Other (MKO). The MKO is anyone who has a better understanding or a higher ability level than the learner, with respect to a particular task, process, or concept  The Zone of Proximal Development (ZPD). The ZPD is the distance between a student’s ability to perform a task under adult guidance and/or with peer collaboration and the student’s ability solving the problem independently.  Learning occurred in the ZPD Vygotsky focused on the connections between people and the sociocultural context in which they act and interact in shared experiences
  6. 6. IMPORTANT CONSTRUCTIVISTSJohn Dewey (1859-1952) An educational psychologist, philosopher, and political activist who was an advocate for child-centered instruction Learning should engage and expand the experiences of the learners Agreed with Vygotsky that education was a social process He began the University Elementary School (the Dewey School)  School should be an extension of society and students should play a role in it  Felt learning should be student-directed with a teacher serving as a guide for resources He was a part of progressive education  Focused on educating the whole child, physically, mentally, and socially
  7. 7. CLASSROOM IMPLICATIONSTeacher’s RoleTeachers must develop a rich learning environment where the students in their class can learn hands on. The students, based on this theory, learn best when the activities are student centered and can actively engage. Vgotsky went further to say that teachers should promote collaboration and discussion because it allows students to learn from one another. Teachers should develop a curriculum that allows the students to solve problems using critical thinking to come to an answer while the teacher monitors the learning. Using technology teachers could have the students do research using a computer and/or books to put together a brochure or report of some sort. Make a powerpoint, a movie, song, or collage of pictures about a topic they are learning in class rather than working on a worksheet. Without technology a teacher could have the students do group work, have a student teach the lesson or even build/create a project using everyday materials.
  8. 8. CLASSROOM IMPLICATIONSStudents - Constructivism can be used in virtually every classroom setting as it allows for children to create their own learning setting. - Communities of practice theory can be used by creating small groups of children with the same interests. The use of elective classes utilizes this theory because students in the classroom have the same level of excitement for the subject. - Discovery learning caters toward students who are good with numbers, such as students who work well in math or science. Experiments allow students to work out problems through doing, not just seeing. - Stage theory is useful for teachers to get an idea about the level of thinking that their students are able to achieve. Knowing these boundaries can help teachers when they are making lesson plans and activities for their class. Image source: http://msbroegseloblog.blogspot.com/
  9. 9. HOW I’D APPLY THIS IN MY CLASSROOMNicole: I think constructivism is good for the classroom because it gives students the chance to basically teach themselves. As we see it, this is something that the teacher will start and based off of that the students will learn something from their own discussion or questions. This theory is good for teachers as well because not only do students learn from the teacher, but lots of learning in the classroom comes from personal lessons and thoughts. I also believe that students can also teach a teacher as much as a teacher teaches a student. This is a learning process for all people in the classroom. Teachers are looking for things that work and dont work and students are looking for information that they can relate to their lives to be able to be a better person or make their lives easier. Its good for teaching because its a theory that can get the brains of students thinking in a different way then just learning from a text book.
  10. 10. HOW I’D APPLY THIS IN MY CLASSROOMSamantha: Have students desks grouped together for cooperative groups. Students learn by helping each other with the topic/problem. They use peer support and help one another only using the teacher as a last resort. Have different “centers” set up throughout the class for students to choose their area they want to study for the day, or find the method for learning a subject that will work best for them (hands on group activity, listening to a lecture, working alone on a computer, etc)
  11. 11. HOW I’D APPLY THIS IN MY CLASSROOMClare: For my own teaching it will be about allowing the students to form their own conclusions and explain what they see happening before telling them what it’s called. Allow students to work together and allow them to research something on their own instead of just handing them the information.Brittany: I’d use constructivism in my classroom by incorporating group work into my lessons. I believe that like Bruner said, children should be actively participating in school so I would try to include activities for students to move around the room, such as different stations. Another way I’d encourage students to participate in their education is through field trips and more learning outside of the classroom.
