Constructivism in Education
Constructivism in Education is a compilation of writings of international educational scholars from the Alternative Epistemologies in Education Conference held in 1992. The focus of the conference, and thus the book, are in-depth discussions concerning Radical Constructivism and Social Constructionism as innovative learning and teaching strategies. Constructivism grew from the work of Jean Piaget. Much of Social Constructionism is based on the work of L.S. Vygotsky.

Social Constructivism: Broadly Defined

"Constructivist learning is based on students' active participation in problem-solving and critical thinking regarding a learning activity which they find relevant and engaging. They are "constructing" their own knowledge by testing ideas and approaches based on their prior knowledge and experience, applying these to a new situation, and integrating the new knowledge gained with pre-existing intellectual constructs."
Information on Jean Piaget, Seymour Papert, Jerome Bruner, Lev Vygotsky & John Dewey
