The Maker Movement and the Rebirth of Constructionism - Hybrid Pedagogy

The Maker Movement and the Rebirth of Constructionism - Hybrid Pedagogy | The Future of Education  - Where do we go now? | 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. 

 

Educational theory and practice have begun to appear more frequently in the popular press. Terms such as collaborative learning, [http://oregonstate.edu/instruct/comm440-540/CL2pager.htm ] project-based learning, [ http://www.edutopia.org/project-based-learning] metacognition, [ https://teal.ed.gov/tealGuide/metacognitive ] inquiry-based learning, [ http://www.inquirybasedlearning.org/?page=What_is_IBL ] and so on, might be new to some audiences, but they have a relatively long and well-documented history for many educators. The most widely-known and promising pedagogical approach is constructivism [http://www.edpsycinteractive.org/topics/cognition/construct.html ] grounded on the work of Piaget,  [ http://www.piaget.org/aboutPiaget.html ] Vygotsky, [http://www.simplypsychology.org/vygotsky.html ] and Bruner [http://infed.org/mobi/jerome-bruner-and-the-process-of-education/ ]. Given how it has transformed my own understanding of pedagogy, teaching, and learning, constructionism [ http://www.edpsycinteractive.org/topics/cognition/construct.html ] seems ripe for a similar resurgence — like a phoenix rising from the ashes of Taylorization and standardized testing.

Agron S. Dida's curator insight, March 6, 2:42 AM

From inside the article: "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."

Channylt's curator insight, April 3, 5:51 AM

A great article about Constructionism a hybrid pedagogy - a theory based upon collaborative, project-based and student ownership of learning resulting in a learning that is largely 'constructed' by the learner themselves. 

Paul Oliveri's curator insight, April 6, 1:23 AM

Constructionism, constructivism, learner centred, authentic, real world, active process, problem based, integration of technology in an authentic way and most importantly transformative.

 

With 63 scoopit interactions this article obviously resonates with the broader education community.

 

How do I use these principles to facilitate someone becoming a Paramedic via the distance mode of learning. I use technology to create learner centred, authentic and problem based activities to facilitate their learning.


This may be having the student develop a video of their interactions with simulated patients, participate in lecturer facilitated collaborative exercises (synchronous and asynchronous) or collaborating in groups with their peers in both synchronous and asynchronous activities.


All of the interactions were previously done in a live environment. Today technology is just the vessel for which these interactions occur.

 

Me I’m still just one of many resources available to them.

“What does achievement look like?” The question lingers as does the pedagogical implications of how to create it in my classroom and because of the weight of this question constantly pressuring my consciousness, the need to excel as an educator continuous bubbles forcing me to reflect further on my part in that process.

White paper: Information Research Fluency – Strengthening Student Success & Retention | Entrepreneurial Library Program

nformation has become increasingly complex, as have the mechanisms for accessing and manipulating it. Online growth has been dramatic and rapid, with “90% of all the data in the world… generated in the last two years” (SINTEF, 2013). The Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL) suggests that an escalating and complex information environment causes “diverse, abundant information choice” in academic studies, the work place, and in personal lives. Compelling evidence illustrates the positive and tangible impact of information literacy and research skills:

Assessment data links a higher GPA to an information literacy course for undergraduates, provided and taught by Entrepreneurial Library Program (ELP) librarians (Norton, 2013).According to a recent case study, 87% of students at Columbia University reported that the strength of their papers increased significantly as a result of using information literacy resources (CredoRef, 2012).First-year students who use the library during their first semester have higher grade point averages and student retention, according to a recent study from the University of Minnesota (Soria, 2013, p.162).
