Chalk Talk: Constructivist Theory
Constructivism is an educational philosophy that focuses on real life experiences and allows students to “construct” their own knowledge. Educators who subscribe to this theory of instruction provide hands-on opportunities to discover new learning and scaffold on prior knowledge. The teacher guides the students while students create their learning. Constructivism can be seen in the works of Maria Montessori and John Dewey. The students should develop abilities through practice and applied situational learning experiences that help them to build an understanding of how “things” work. While there is room for direct instruction within this theory, it also promotes project-based learning and inquiry-guided learning as well.
