10-Rep Learning ~ Teague's Tech Treks

Learning Technology & Tech Observations by Dr. Helen Teague


Video Review of Constructivism and Constructionism

Here is an updated video review of the Constructivism and Constructionism Learning Theories.

The video features a Microsoft digital storytelling app for creating interactive presentation called Sway. Here is the Sway link if you would like to scroll through at your own pace: https://tinyurl.com/TeagueSwayPVP

Please note: This is a video excerpt from a Webinar I gave for graduate students and presented onsite in Tampere, Finland and Dublin, Ireland. This is a very low-tech, summary version of a much longer conference presentation. Participant questions and discussion are edited and gaps may be present. The video has been edited for time and content. Some edits are choppy and will never win awards. 🙂


Weekend Ed. Quote ~ April 30


“… the original decision about how to use computers placed the teacher on a collision course with School’s system of control: As soon as she (the teacher) decided not to control the students, she took away School’s established way of controlling her. The question has moved from how power is distributed within the educational hierarchy to whether hierarchy to whether hierarchy is an appropriate mode of organization for education.”

~Seymour Papert, The Children’s Machine: Rethinking school in the age of the computer, 1993

Weekend Ed. Quote ~ September 23

Give yourself time is an absurdly obvious principle that falls equally under heuristics and mathetics. Yet school flagrantly contravenes it by its ways of chopping time … Seymour Papert, A Word for Learning, In Constructionism in Practice, by Yasmin Kafai and Mitchel Resnick
