Examine how constructivism and information processing theories could be applied in an everyday learning situation. Reflecting upon what you have learned about constructivism and information processing theories:
Describe the basic tenets of each theory.
Using theory specific terminology, describe the elements of the case study related to each theory.
What elements of the case study would be important from a constructivism perspective?
What elements of the case study would be important from an information processing perspective?
Finally, pretend that the character in the scenario has overcome their learning barrier.
Speculate how one might achieve their goal supported by each of the learning theories.
For this assessment:
Describe the basic tenets of constructivism theory.
Describe the basic tenets of information processing theory.
Apply constructivism and information processing terminology and concepts to the case study (available in the Resources) that you selected for the first assessment in the course.
Explain how both constructivism and information processing theory might be used to resolve the problem presented in the case study.
