Student-Centered, Technology-Rich Learning Environments (SCenTRLE): Operationalizing Constructivist Approaches to Teaching and Learning

Abstract

This article presents a model for designing student-centered,
technology-rich learning environments (SCenTRLE). The
model helps educators operationalize constructivist and student-
centered approaches to teaching and learning by delimiting
eight instructional events for facilitating knowledge
construction and the development of life-long learners. The
article describes theoretical and conceptual foundations for
the model, details the model and discusses enduring issues,
including the use of technology, student attitudes, levels of
implementation, holistic versus analytic performance assessment,
and the application of constructivist principles within
the context of traditional instructional systems design (ISD)
models.
