Role of Teachers in Constructivistic Approach
Karpagam, S.; Ananthasayanam, R.
Journal on School Educational Technology, v7 n1 p14-18 Jun-Aug 2011
This paper attempts to explain learner centered methodology of teaching at the school level due to implementation of National curriculum frame work for school (2005), since NCF [National Curriculum Framework] 2005 emphasizes the process of constructing knowledge i.e. learning to learn, willing to unlearn, and relearn as a new paradigm of learning in a flexible and creative manner. This Learner centered interactive pedagogic approach insists certain psychological principles as a representation of current knowledge base of learners and learning. This approach is based on Constructivist learning approach which socializes the people into the culture of self-reliance, resourcefulness, peace oriented values and health and also facilitates learner in acquisition of key knowledge, attitude and behavior to face the society at large. Considering above the teachers' role becomes more complex, difficult and pivotal in the context of new curriculum and has to transform the teacher as a facilitator, co-learner, democratic leader and diagnostician.
