The purpose of this study was to investigate the influences of Constructivist Learning Environments (CLEs) through the use of laptops supported within 1:1 e-learning education in Malaysian schools. The main objectives of this study were to investigate (a) different possible gaps between constructivist theory and classroom practices in Malaysian schools, (b) success, if any, of the classroom students who would undertake Classmate PC (CMPC) classroom putting while into practice a constructivist approach to learning, and (c) develop a conceptual framework model based on students' communication in a constructivist learning environment. Yet, (d) there is a strong need to address Constructivist Learning Environments (CLEs) practices on local Malaysian settings. A modified Constructivist eLearning Environment Questionnaire (CLEQ) survey used in this study was multiply regressed against student Perceived Learning Outcomes (PRCVD). Findings revealed different aspects of students' learning outcomes and enforcement to use creative thinking in building students' knowledge within constructivism learning context.
