I’d like to share for thought, a colleague utilizes constructivism when creating trainings.
In review, I suggested to expand on the discussion, as constructivism per Piaget’s theories, tell us that learning is constructed by the learner, not received or obtained from someone, and acquired through active engagement by the learner, that being dependent on the learner’s prior knowledge. Constructivist learning therefore requires the learner to construct new knowledge or understanding using an active process that relates or builds upon previously acquired knowledge (Becker, 2002).
However, and of which may be of benefit to her current work, in considering connectivism, a learner utilizes previously discovered information in network analysis to analyze to interpret knowledge and assumes knowledge as a network (AlDahdouh, Orsorio, & Caires, 2015).
Connectivism gives knowledge into the elements of systems, situations, and ecologies that backs up a persistent learning process. Furthermore, connectivism addresses the difficulties that numerous partnerships look in information administration exercises. Information that resides in a database should be associated with the correct individuals in the correct setting with the end goal to be delegated learning (Siemens, 2004).
