  16. 16. Constructionism• Theory: Acquired learning is demonstrated “in acontext where the learner is consciously engagedin constructing a public entity, whether its asand castle on the beach or a theory of theuniverse.” (Papert & Harel, 1991)• Evidence: DS106 participants use digital buildingblocks to assemble creative artifacts displayedpublicly on the Internet, display their creativeprocess, and seek feedback.DS106-M.Plourde-May7,201316
  17. 17. Communities of Practice• Theory: Participation structures that arecharacteristic of a community or group areaspects of the communitys or groups practices,and learning to become more effective in onesparticipation corresponds to achieving fullerparticipation in a communitys practices. (Lave &Wenger, 1991, in Greeno, 2006)• Evidence: DS106 is a community with clear rulesof engagement, in which more activeparticipants gain greater influence.DS106-M.Plourde-May7,201317
