Storyboard Text

  • Needs Analysis
  • Interview Participants using the Performance Pyramid Framework (Jones, Murray, Steege, 2012): What do you know about constructivism? What tools/resources do you use to stay up to date on knowledge regarding constructivism? How do you use constructivism in your learning activities? What kind of feedback do you get in regards to use of this theory? What problems do you face when applying constructivism? What do you feel most confident in about using constructivism? What knowledge or skills do you need to help you be successful in using this learning theory?
  • Engage
  • Set goals and expectations: By the end of the course, the learner will have a deep understanding of what the constructivist theory is, why it plays an important role in learning, and how to implement in their courses to improve learning.
  • Prior Activity: True Colors Personality Test Show video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nA1Aqp0sPQo Have students compare and contrast ideas to own experiences in learning opportunities over their lifetime. 
  • Explore
  • Jigsaw activity: Find researched information on higher order thinking skills, depths of knowledge, connections to real-world, and conversation/discussions
  • Divide students into four subgroups.  Students are assigned different key questions that require them to analyze the same materials from different view points.  Each group studies one subgroup and each new group has one expert.  New group requires them to peer teach; cooperate to find things in common, unique characteristics, benefits and cons.
  • Possible Grouping: A1B1C1D1    A2B2C2D2    A3B3C3D3    A4B4C4D4 A1B2C3D4   A2B3C4D5    A3B4C1D2    A4B1C2D3 A1B3C1D3   A2B4C2D4   A3B1C3D1     A4B2C4D2 A1B4C3D2   A2B1C3D2   A3B2C1D4      A4B3C2D1    
  • Explain
  • Find a video or case study of a real life learning experience.  Have students pull out the areas of the lesson that the theory is evident.  In this activity, the teacher can reinforce some key points or correct any misconceptions.
  • Elaborate
  • Students choose a standard or learning goal and create a lesson using constructivist ideas.
  • Evaluate
  • Evaluation should occur throughout the lesson.  This includes the interview, pre-schema, jigsaw activity, analysis of learning experience and the lesson plan.  The instructor can use observations, interviews, project outcomes, and a rubric.
