Dr. Pramila Tanwar

Abstract :

 Constructivism envisages that learning is an active and constructive process. The role of the learner is shifted from passive listener to an active information constructor. A student has to create his/her on subjective representations of objective reality by linking it with the early experiences. The science subjects offer innumerable possibilities of learning through constructivist approach. It was observed that the teachers were not adequately trained on constructivist approach and still followed lecture method. They did not emphasis on discussion, experimentation, raise open–ended problems and also were unable to use students‘ ideas for more effective science learning. The study stresses on the need for orienting teachers for implementing constructivism in the classroom to make it learner–centered with lots of group discussions, explorations and problem solving
