 Chrysalis Campaign, Inc. www.richardclose.com
  2. 2. Constructivism in Instructional Design Dewey View "The teacher is not in the school to impose certain ideas or to form certain habits in the child, but is there as a member of the community to select the influences which shall affect the child and to assist him in properly responding to these.......I believe, therefore, in the so-called expressive or constructive activities as the centre of correlation." John Dewey, Education and Experience, 1938/1997. New York. Touchstone.
  3. 3. Constructivism in Instructional Design Neuroscience View Rock (2014) suggests the research points to four must-haves to embed new ideas:  1. Attention has to be very high; multitasking dramatically reduces recall. The chemical processes to encode memories only activate when we’re very focused, 2. People need to Generate their own mental maps around new ideas. They can’t just watch or listen; effort is central, 3. Emotions need to be high; learners only remember things they feel strongly about, 4. People grow their memories, so Spacing out learning is critical’.  These four elements, attention, generation, emotion and spacing, form the Neuroscience Institute AGES model. Rock (2014), believes that high AGES are necessary for people to recall ideas, but when AGES domains are low, idea recall will be poor. Rock (2014), further advocates that designing learning programs must begin with a focus on the brain, take each of the AGES points into account, and then getting creative on how to execute the learning intervention. UNESCO “I am Africa. This is my story… project
  4. 4. Constructivism in Instructional Design PBL View Thomas Markham (2011) describes project-based learning (PBL) thus: "PBL integrates knowing and doing. Students learn knowledge and elements of the core curriculum, but also apply what they know to solve authentic problems and produce results that matter. PBL students take advantage of digital tools to produce high quality, collaborative products. PBL refocuses education on the student, not the curriculum--a shift mandated by the global world, which rewards intangible assets such as drive, passion, creativity, empathy, and resiliency. These cannot be taught out of a textbook, but must be activated through experience.” Markham, T. (2011). Project Based Learning. Teacher Librarian, 39(2), 38-42. Zambia Thunder Farm
