Final report of the Brookline Logo Project: Well of course she was still going to her school classes. She was in the weakest math group. Fortunately there are several extensions that got towards this direction.

In the process, we learn our subject well because we have to think hard about it and think of the best ways to convey it to others. Seymour Papert defined constructionism in a proposal to the National Science Foundation titled Constructionism: But when the concept itself is in evolution it is appropriate to papeert intellectual doors open and this is where we are now.

This boy was appropriating mathematics in a deeply personal way.

A fifth grader who was in his second year of working with LogoWriter was showing a spectacular sample of screen graphics he had programmed. Ebonique is not hanging out with the other kids. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. These two key ideas set the stage for the evolution of constructionism. It is clear enough that each of these constrkccionismo taken separately carries implications for education.

Constructionist learning involves students drawing their own conclusions through creative experimentation and the making of social objects. Those who like to play with images of structures emerging from their own chaos, lifting themselves by their own bootstraps, are very likely predisposed to constructionism.

One such application has been the use of the popular game SimCity as a means of teaching English using constructionist techniques. Collaborative knowledge construction is definitly the way Moodle has to go if it doesn’t want to become yet another Scorm engine.


Although it is conceivable that science may one day show that there is a “best way,” no such conclusion seems to be on the horizon. The question at issue is on a different level: More than 20 years ago, I was working on a project at the Muzzey Junior High School in Lexington, MA, which had been persuaded by Wally Feuerzeig to allow a papwrt grade to “do Logo” instead of math for that year.

Paperh of the classroom, it’s the same sad story. But we noticed that although everyone had space ships they did not make them the same way. The construction of physical cybernetic creatures is made construccionism by novel hardware. For a long time it existed in my head as “soap-sculpture math. But feminist scholars have argued that many women prefer working with more personal, less-detached knowledge and do so very successfully.

A Logo Casebook How did she get an improvement in how to add and subtract and multiply fractions from doing this? Her experiments show that children’s attention can be held for an hour a day over periods of several months by making as opposed to using educational software–even when the children consider the content of the software to be utterly boring in its usual classroom form.

It is tangled with central issues of radical thinking in feminism, in Africanism, and in other areas where people fight for the right not only to think what they please, but to think it in their own ways.

The example of children building a snake suggests ways of working in which those who like bricolage and staying close to the object can do as well as those who prefer a more analytic formal style.

My little play on the words construct and constructionism already hints at two of these multiple facets–one seemingly “serious” and one seemingly “playful. The caterpillar turned into a butterfly. In fact, at Muzzey School there was no screen, only clanging teletype terminals connected to a distant “time-shared” computer. What was going on? Although most of the examples in the book use computers, some do not.

Problem-based learning is a constructionist method which allows students to learn about a subject by exposing them to multiple problems and asking them to construct their understanding of the subject through these problems.


At school, children do not talk about mathematics. I am trying to say, that you use fractions, almost every day of your life.

There cannot be many research groups in education with the capability of innovating in so many ways. The Clearing House, The theoretical thrust of “Epistemological Pluralism” is to see this epistemological challenge as meshing with those made by the other two trends it analyzes.

The first space shuttle was about to go up, and in the tension of waiting for it appeared in many representations on screens all over the construccionnismo. But because she developed a good relationship with fractions, because she was thinking about fractions, and she thought about it as her knowledge, not teachers’ knowledge, she could now listen to what was happening in the class, and she could learn from it.

Page last modified The human spirit in the computer culture. For example, instead of having students memorize geography facts, a teacher could give students blank maps that show unlabeled rivers, lakes, and mountains, and then ask the students to decipher where major cities might be located without the help of books or maps.

Some programmed their space ships as if they had read a book on “structured programming,” in the top-down style of work that proceeds through careful planning to organize the work and by making subprocedures for every part under the hierarchical control of a superprocedure.

He feels also that the construction of web sites and computer sofware Dougiamas, has a similar effect. This kind of learning can be very effective in mathematics classes because students try to solve the problems in many different ways, stimulating their minds.
