Constructivism and educational practice

Journal/Book: Aust J Educ. 1996; 40: 9 Frederick Street, PO Box 210, Hawthorn Victoria 3122, Australia. Australian Counc Educ Res. 19-45.

Abstract: THE constructivist approach is seen to be useful notably in science, mathematics and tertiary education. An account of non-radical constructivism is advanced and applied to classroom teaching and learning, and teaching strategies derived from the application of constructivist principles are identified and evaluated. It is suggested that many traditional classrooms are places of over-control, and certain traditional teaching methods may actually hinder students' potential to procreate human knowledge. Constructivism represents a fundamental challenge to many aspects of educational praxis, and may change significantly the ways by which young people are mass educated.
