Week 5 Social constructivism

A lot of pedagogies are based on the theory of constructivism,
and with the rise of the gap between the digital natives
and digital immigrants the constructivism theory applies very well in the new learning process in which both the rols of the students and the teachers have changed.

Social constructivism
views each learner as an unique individual, complex, active learner, who has needs and learns by doing. Interaction with others and the environement is important. While teachers are the facillitators who do not tell, but ask.

Seymour Papert came up with a new term
Constructionism -> constructivism theory + co-design + e-tools

I see Constructionism as Blended learning. Co producing with the help of the new technology.
