Changing the Nature of Knowledge

Changing the Nature of Knowledge | Teaching Psychology | Scoop.it

"The Nature of Knowing

One of the most important innovations that an educator can  embrace is not a software program or particular technological tool, but rather  a philosophy of teaching. In the 20th Century, the theory behind  learning and the very nature of knowledge has changed several times. Learning  theory has moved from Pavlovian and Skinnerian Behaviorism at the start of the 20th Century , to Cognitivism inspired by Bruner and Piaget in the 1960’s, to the Constructivist ideas of Vygotsky in the 1990’s and, most recently, to Social Constructivism (SC)   with theorist such as Lave and Wenger leading the way. Under the social  constructivist paradigm, social interaction is required for learning to take  place. This most recent change aligns nicely with online education because of  the advanced communication technology of the Internet and the prevalence of  online social networks and the collaborative meaning-making tools of Web 2.0.  These elements are central to both social constructivism and Web 2.0 and the  delivery of online education on the Internet and the use of these technologies  makes social constructivism a natural fit for virtual learning."

 

Dr Justin Marquis makes a case for Social Constructivism as the learning theory for today's digital age leveraging Web 2.0 social media to support the design of authentic learning experiences and collaborative meaning formation.
