Constructionism
  • by Seymour Papert
  • learning by doing (instead of knowledge transfer - transmissionism)
  • constructing connections and mental models, and using current knowledge to acquire more knowledge (Seymour Papert) (links)
  • Logo is "mathland" - it's as natural to learn math in mathland, as it is to learn French in France

Understanding Requires Effort

  • this is related to constructionism - there's no way to just "download" the knowledge (transmissionism)
    • this also might be why some of the best workshops/lessons are the ones where students work on their own projects
    • obviously it's easier to make this effort when an idea is interesting to the student - it's hard to learn things which we are not interested in
