20091105 scaffolding

  1. 1. Some ideas on the concept of scaffolding<br />By Víctor Lugo<br />
  2. 2. Scaffolding is a learning process which…<br />Exploits the learners’ initial interest and encourages their curiosity as a key requirement to learn.<br />
  3. 3. Promotes social exchange and discussion through the inclusion of different viewpoints on the same issue <br />
  4. 4. Departs from the clear identification of learning needs and goals, and learners’ strengths and weaknesses and individual learning style.<br />
  5. 5. Requires informed guidance to provide learners with logical steps promoting discovery and permanent goalposts for them to monitor their progress.<br />
  6. 6. Scaffolding empowers learners by helping them<br />Take responsibility of their own learning, <br />… this highly reflective learning process makes learners demand high-quality services from their teachers and tutors, and commitment from their peers<br />and, something probably far more important…<br />
  7. 7. In the end, as a result of scaffolding, learners come to understand that learning is a gate to discover and make sense of the world.<br />
