Towards Concept Understanding Relying on Conceptualisation in Constructivist Learning
Badie, Farshad
International Association for Development of the Information Society, Paper presented at the International Association for Development of the Information Society (IADIS) International Conference on Cognition and Exploratory Learning in the Digital Age (CELDA) (13th, Mannheim, Germany, Oct 28-30, 2016)
This research works within the framework of constructivist learning (based on constructivist epistemology) and examines learning as an activity of construction, and it posits that knowledge acquisition (and learning) are transformative through self-involvement in some subject matter. Thus it leads, through this constructivism to a pedagogical theory of learning. I will mainly focus on conceptual and epistemological analysis of humans' conceptualisations based on their own mental objects (schemata). Subsequently, I will propose an analytical specification of humans' conceptualisations and understandings over their mental structures in the framework of constructivism, and I will clarify my logical [and semantic] conceptions of humans' concept understandings. This research focuses on philosophy of education and on logics of human learning. It connects with the topics "Cognition in Education" and "Mental Models". [For full proceedings, see ED571332.]
