Constructivism, Education, Science, and Technology
Boudourides, Moses A.
Canadian Journal of Learning and Technology, v29 n3 Fall 2003
The purpose of this paper is to present a brief review of the various streams of constructivism in studies of education, society, science and technology. It is intended to present a number of answers to the question (what really is constructivism?) in the context of various disciplines from the humanities and the sciences (both natural and social). In particular the discussion will focus on four varieties of constructivism: philosophical, cybernetic, educational, and sociological constructivism.
