Using Technology Tools to Engage Students with Multiple Learning Styles in a Constructivist Learning Environment
Solvie, Pamela; Kloek, Molly
Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), v7 n2 p7-27 2007
This research study investigated the use of technology tools to support constructivist learning experiences in a preservice teacher education reading methods course. Learning opportunities based on Kolb's learning styles model were used to support understanding of course content in the constructivist environment. Technology tools were used during class presentations to communicate, scaffold, and clarify course concepts and content while engaging students with information. Technology was used outside of class as a collaboration tool in mediating and negotiating learning between the instructor and students as well as between students and students. In addition to demonstration and application of reading methods, students' perceptions of their learning experience and understanding of course content were considered in analyzing the effectiveness of technology used to address multiple learning styles in a constructivist environment.
