What kind of a learner does Constructivist Theory promote?
I have come up with these definitions and keywords from readings about constructivist teachers and classroom designs. Of the readings from, in particular, Brooks and Brooks(1999) on Constructivist teacher and constructivist classroom design I inferred the characteristics of the learner or the person Constructivist Theory aims at serving and actually creating (by the end of the education process). While preparing this entry I went googling however I could not find anything worth reading on "constructivist learner".
