Constructivism as a Paradigm for Teaching and Learning

As with many of the methods addressed in this series of workshops, in the constructivist classroom, the focus tends to shift from the teacher to the students. The classroom is no longer a place where the teacher ("expert") pours knowledge into passive students, who wait like empty vessels to be filled. In the constructivist model, the students are urged to be actively involved in their own process of learning. The teacher functions more as a facilitator who coaches, mediates, prompts, and helps students develop and assess their understanding, and thereby their learning. One of the teacher's biggest jobs becomes ASKING GOOD QUESTIONS.

"Learning is one of those topics that the more you learn about it the more you want to learn. As teachers and educators we all have  at least some basic knowledge of some of the  foundational theories on Learning including Behaviourism, constructivism, constructivism, and the list of isms goes on and on. What is of particular interest to us is to explore how students learn and what strategies they use to learn. Knowing about such theories help us take informed decisions as to what can be done to meet the different learning styles of our students."

Critical Review of Connectivism: A Learning Theory for the Digital Age

Critical Review of Connectivism: A Learning Theory for the Digital Age | Learning theories | Scoop.it

In his 2005 article Connectivism: A Learning Theory for the Digital Age, Siemens outlined a new way of thinking about learning based on the recent advances in information technology. He argues that this new theory, connectivism, supersedes previous learning theories, including behaviourism, cognitivism, and contructivism. In this post, I am seeking to further my understanding of this new theory, examine its limitations, and consider its relevance to both classroom teaching as well as knowledge management practices within organizations.

A useful read for teachers to understand different learner capabilities.

I'm going to rebadge this as "models" of learning /instruction as opposed to theories - which would suggest a hypothesis of how learning occurs

Constructivism, the 5 E's, and Background Knowledge

Constructivism:  A learning strategy that draws on students' existing knowledge, beliefs, and skills. With a constructivist approach, students synthesize new understanding from prior learning and new information.

 

The 5 E's is an instructional model based on the constructivist approach to learning, which says that learners build or construct new ideas on top of their old ideas. The 5 E's can be used with students of all ages, including adults.
