Constructivists see knowledge construction as a dynamic process that happens through the interactions between the learners’ internal and external environments
- The internal environment meaning cognitive abilities, values and beliefs, emotions, perceptual filters, personality, confidence and current state of knowledge. In short, the learners acquired frame of reference.
- The external environment meaning the social and cultural structures and the traditions of thought and language where the learner lives and learner. It is the external environment that sets the nature of knowledge, what knowledge is worth knowing and what is not.
Help your learners construct the knowledge they need.
