The Maker Movement and the Rebirth of Constructionism - Hybrid Pedagogy

The Maker Movement and the Rebirth of Constructionism - Hybrid Pedagogy | Personal [e-]Learning Environments | 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.

This article is very insightful. It clearly explains and demonstrates the differences that have occured in education over the last 20 years, particularly in the context of technology. Mobile learning is becoming more prominent in classrooms and requires teachers to be active participants in the use of technology.

Humble hyperlink - warp-drive of learning - a profound MOOP (Massive Online Open Pedagogy) | Personal [e-]Learning Environments | Scoop.it

The humble hyperlink has now had a profound effect on learning. It is the ‘warp drive’ of online learning. You can find, locate, explain, look, buy, sell, bid, follow, friend; literally go at hyper-speed to new worlds. We now do it without thinking, in every Google search, Facebook update and Tweet.

 

===> It is the springboard to further knowledge and takes you in leaps to people, places, products and pleasures you would never have dreamed off before the coming of the web. <===
