The Integration of Technology into a Constructivist Curriculum: Beyond PowerPoint[R].
Tucker, Gary R.; Batchelder, Ann
This paper reports on a three-year study of a model that uses the tenets of constructionism to integrate technology into a constructivist curriculum. The model has been used in regular face-to-face courses, in interactive instructional television courses, and in an online course. The following three significant themes emerged from analysis of the data: (1) the nature and characteristics of successful learners; (2) the power of project-based instruction; and (3) the power of interaction and collaboration. The model has proved to be effective both from the standpoint of being able to achieve the course objectives and the students' view of their success and learning in the classes.
