What Constructivism Demands of the Learner

Educational Technology Volume 31, Number 9, ISSN 0013-1962


Discussion of constructivism that is based on concerns raised in an earlier issue focuses on demands placed on the learners. Three areas are explored: (1) cognitive complexity; (2) task management, to help sequence students through a learning experience; and (3) learners "buying in" to the constructivist agenda of the instruction.
