Best Constructivist Learning Theory Review
The Constructivist Theory of education is the idea that the learner is able to use current and past experiences to teach themselves and the teacher is only present to facilitate their learning and fill in any gaps the student may have. The learning is primarily done with hands-on experience. For example, a child may see their parent writing and want to learn how to write. So, when they go to school, they would try to teach themselves to write and the teacher would only help them if they cannot figure it out on their own. This style of education focuses on the student more than the subject.
