Constructionism (learning theory) – Wikipedia

A fifth grader who was in his second year of working constrruccionismo LogoWriter was showing a spectacular sample of screen graphics he had programmed.

For example, traditional epistemology gives a privileged position to knowledge that is abstract, impersonal, and detached from the knower and treats other forms of knowledge as inferior.

Instead, I must confine myself to engage you in experiences including verbal ones liable to encourage your own personal construction of something in some sense like it. More like the tinkerer, the bricoleurwe can come to agreement about theories of learning at least for the present and perhaps in principle only by groping in our disorderly bags of tricks and tools for the wherewithal to build understandings. Ebonique also experienced genuine intellectual excitement with fractions.

Constructionism (learning theory)

With the instructional software design project, we did not expect to transform Ebonique’s personality.

And in this project, children spend two or three months, three or four hours a week, working on a long project to make a piece of software. He feels also that the construction of web sites and computer sofware Dougiamas, has a similar effect.

In fact, the origination of the Logo Turtle was inspired by the soap-sculpture image and a few others like it. Outside of the classroom, it’s the same sad story. Constructionism is connected with experiential learning and builds on some of the ideas of Construccionidmo Piaget. A variant of the strong claim is that this is the only framework that has been proposed that allows the full range of intellectual styles and preferences to each find a point of equilibrium.


Computer literacy and CAI, or indeed the use of word-processors, could conceivably set up waves that will change school, but in themselves they constitute very local innovations–fairly described as placing computers in a possibly improved but essentially unchanged school. It states that building knowledge occurs best through building things that are tangible an sharable Ackerman et al.

Constructionism asserts that constructivism occurs especially well when the learner is engaged in constructing construcionismo for others to see:.

What can we do to encourage this?


To do this, we may have to bone up on the subject, talk with others, prepare notes and draw diagrams. The caterpillar turned into a butterfly.

As you read the chapters you will find many examples of children’s work that exhibits one or another of features of the soap-sculpting class. An ambition was born: How did she get an improvement in how to add and subtract and multiply fractions from doing this?

It had no graphics, no Turtle. It then adds the idea that this happens especially felicitously in a context where the learner is consciously engaged in constructing a public entity, whether it’s a construccioismo castle on the beach or a theory of the universe. This is demonstrated by the complexities of some common issues that pappert in different guises in my own contributions to this collection.

There is a huge difference in status between these two splits. In a closely related example, Mitchel Resnick opened a new range of activities by creating a new software system: Case studies in instrumental design.

Ebonique is not hanging out with the other kids. In some cases there may be no way to do it one-on-one but a mutual understanding could still be socially mediated: I was struck by an incongruous image of the teacher in a regular math class pining to own the products of his students’ work!

The question at issue is on a different level: But these are not the questions to guide research in the next few years for they presuppose that the concept of constructionism has reached a certain level of construccilnismo and stability. But it does not follow that the route to better performance is constrruccionismo the invention by researchers of more powerful and effective means of instruction with or without computers.


But in saying all this I must be careful not to transgress the basic tenet shared by the V and the N forms: Constructionist learning is when learners construct mental models to understand the world around them. The emphasis has shifted from general laws of development to individuals’ conversation with their own representations, artifacts, or objects-to-think with.

The understanding that my concerns with ways of knowing and kinds of knowledge are not disconnected from educational concerns grew construccionismi of my concerns with papegt appropriation and styles of thinking or one’s style of making a piece of cosntruccionismo one’s own ; it is time to pick this thread up again.

I do not believe that anyone fully understands what gives these activities their quality of “learning-richness. MicroworldsConstructionist learning objectsand educational tangible objects represent the ideal-typical incarnation of constructionism. Both the creation process and the produced artifacts ought to be socially shared. These two key ideas set papery stage for the evolution of constructionism.

See also Chapters 4, 5, 6, and 22 in Constructionism. The diffusion of cybernetic construction kits into the lives of children could in construcciionismo change the context of the learning of mathematics. In fact, at Muzzey School there was no screen, only clanging teletype terminals connected to a distant “time-shared” computer.

A conceptually simple case is the addition of new elements to LEGO construction kits and to the Logo microworlds, so that children can build more “active” models. Indeed, in form they are very different, and intellectual work is needed to see what they have in common.

I want to be a person who puts math and art together.
