D. Muniyappan, Dr. P. Sivakumar

Abstract :

 

Social constructivism is a theory of knowledge in sociology and communication theory that examines the knowledge and understandings of the world that are developed jointly by individuals. the roots of individuals’ knowledge are found in their interactions with their surroundings and other people before their knowledge is internalized. Social constructivists believes that the process of shå individual perspectives–called collaborative elaboration , results in learners constructing understanding together and this construction cannot be possible alone within individuals. Vygotsky (1978) believes that learning is a continual movement from the current intellectual level to a higher level which more closely approximates the learner‘s potential. This movement occurs in the zone of proximal development (ZPD) as a result of social interaction.  This paper ings out the views of social constructivism on instructional methods and pesrpectives of teaching and learning.
