The Maker Movement and the Rebirth of Constructionism - Hybrid Pedagogy

The Maker Movement and the Rebirth of Constructionism - Hybrid Pedagogy | A New Society, a new education! | Scoop.it
The culmination of my quest for more powerful learning grounded in theory and research came when recently I conducted an experiment in pushing constructionism into the digital age.

 

Constructionism is based on two types of construction. First, it asserts that learning is an active process, in which people actively construct knowledge from their experience in the world. People don’t get ideas; they make them. This aspect of construction comes from the constructivist theory of knowledge development by Jean Piaget. To Piaget’s concept, Papert added another type of construction, arguing that people construct new knowledge with particular effectiveness when they are engaged in constructing personally meaningful products.

Imagine my surprise and joy when I realized that I had arrived at constructionism prior to knowing that such a theory even existed. I believe that thousands of other educators are unknowingly working within the constructionist paradigm as well. Although many within the Maker movement are aware that it has it’s roots in constructionism, the movement is gaining impressive momentum without the majority of Makers realizing that there is a strong theoretical foundation behind their work.

 

After I came to understand this connection between my practices and the supporting theoretical framework I was better able to focus and refine my practice. Even more importantly, I felt more confident and powerful in forging ahead with further experiments in the learning situations I design for my learners.

We learn by doing, so teaching should ask us to do.

We've heard of the term 'digital footprints' where companys track your movements around the web. Check out and download this eye-opening Ghostery video free. Ghostery will track all the 'ghosts' that follow you. Look at the video to see how this simple web app does it. The web stalker that I am, I need to erase some of those digital footprints. Mek we go (Let's go) check it it out now.

Useful and highly recommended, as I've checked the reviews, to understand what is being tracked & communicated as your browse the web.  ~  Deb

Innovations in Education - Teacher Creativity Leads to Student Creativity

Innovations in Education - Teacher Creativity Leads to Student Creativity | A New Society, a new education! | Scoop.it

One way to design a transfer task is to imagine what someone in “the real world” might do with that knowledge and skill – what kind of work would they be doing? 

 

Then, build a plausible scenario where students can be in those roles, and/or make it real by having their final product, thinking, and ideas shared with an authentic audience.
