Conceptual Models in Educational Research and Practice.
Von Glaserfeld, Ernst; Steffe, Leslie P.
Journal of Educational Thought/Revue de la Pensee Educative, v25 n2 p91-103 Aug 1991
Suggests that conceptual models may bridge the gap between educational researchers and teachers. Discusses "models" in terms of explanatory theories, teachers' understanding of students, and students' understanding of mathematics. Considers Piaget's concept of accommodation and scheme theory. Argues that students must operate deliberately and autonomously to understand. (DMM)
