Automation Foundation - Constructivism Presentation

  1. 3. <ul><ul><li>IS the theory that knowledge is obtained through an active process and is constructed . </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Learning new material is built off of previous knowledge. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Learning is not a passive process. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>It provides students with a more individualized learning. </li></ul></ul>
  2. 4. <ul><ul><li>The teacher is to act as a guide in this model. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The teacher provides the students with the necessary materials and information to test their ideas on a new topic. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The teacher asks the students to then explain their understanding about a topic. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Teacher no longer acts as the Sage who just lectures. </li></ul></ul>
  3. 5. <ul><ul><li>Jean Piaget and John Dewey developed theories of childhood development and education. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>They came up with the idea that learning is most effect and efficient when the student is actively participating in their own learning. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>So students should no longer be a passive bystander in their own learning. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  4. 6. PROs of Constructivism <ul><ul><li>Engages students in activities rather than listening to lecture </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A learning style that can be used for years to come, even outside of school </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Promotes active role in the discovery of new information  </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Using all faculties promotes a higher level of thinking </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Hands-on discovery is always better than being &quot;taught&quot; </li></ul></ul>
  5. 7. CONs of Constructivism <ul><ul><li>Lack of structure </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Instructor accountability </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>&quot;Group thinking&quot; may lead to majority rules philosophy </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Socio-economic class may prove advantageous to some while proving dis-advantageous to others </li></ul></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>
  6. 9. Advantages to Constructivism <ul><ul><li>Encourages active engagement </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Promotes motivation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Promotes autonomy, responsibility, independence </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Development of reativity and problem solving skills </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A tailored learning experience </li></ul></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>
  7. 10. Disadvantages to Constructivism <ul><ul><li>Creation of cognitive overload </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Potential misconceptions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Instructors may fail to detect problems and misconceptions </li></ul></ul>
  8. 12. <ul><ul><li>Engage </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Explore </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Explain </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Elaborate </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Evaluate </li></ul></ul>
  9. 13. <ul><ul><li>Science lesson plans lend themselves to this type of instruction. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>In our lesson we picked a lesson on spreading viruses. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Students will be engaged by thinking back to a personal time when they were sick. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>This will help them to build on their prior knowledge of what it was like to be sick and to think about how they got sick in the first place. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  10. 14. <ul><ul><li>For the explorations the students will have a chance to see how sharing a drink 2 class mates can spread a sickness through the entire class. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>After the experiment students will have to explain how they got the sickness and how they think it spread from one to almost the entire class . </li></ul></ul>
  11. 15. <ul><ul><li>Students will then elaborate to the rest of the class on who they think was originally infected. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Once the class has come to a consensus on who was originally infected, the students will evaluate their learning by answering some questions. </li></ul></ul>
