Thank You for sharing this!
I sometimes fail to find the perfect balance between the Constructivist idea that inquiry/tension is the catalyst for engaged learning and this following quote:
”During scaffolding the first step is to build interest and engage the learner. Once the learner is actively participating, the given task should be simplified by breaking it into smaller sub-tasks. During this task, the teacher needs to keep the learner focused, while concentrating on the most important ideas of the assignment. One of the most integral steps in scaffolding consists of keeping the learner from becoming frustrated. The final task associated with scaffolding involves the teacher modelling possible ways of completing tasks, which the learner can then imitate and eventually internalise” (Dahms et al., 2007).
This article gave me some important things to think about. Thanks
