Burns, Mary; Burniske, Jackie; Dimock, Vicki
TAP into Learning, v1 n2 Spr 1999
The first issue of "TAP into Learning" examined constructivism and some ways technology might be employed to support learning environments based on constructivist theory. This issue examines one of these principles and some classroom activities based on practices consistent with this principle. Highlights include: "On the Road to Student-Centered Learning"; "A Framework for Constructivism"; "Learning about Estimation"; "I Voted!" (a student activity to simulate real world voting procedures); "Let's examine the ways in which the voting unit was a constructivist activity supported by technology"; "What is Database Software?"; and "But I don't teach civics and the elections are over, how can I use databases in my class?". Selected resources for using database software in the classroom are also described. (AEF)
