Building Future-Ready Learners: Constructivism and Lesson Planning
Pédagogie constructiviste et planification des leçons
As the world undergoes rapid transition, at the same time that it faces unprecedented global challenges, it becomes increasingly apparent that our focus ought to be on teaching learners how to learn, how to be mindfully and critically evaluative and reflective, and how to be resilient and adapt to the challenges expected in an uncertain future. For educators to meet the ever-changing learning needs of society, the ability to weave together knowledge of pedagogy, content, and instructional design is a prerequisite for effective future teaching and learning. This paper illustrates these relationships by applying a constructivism lens to an existing Creative Commons lesson plan.
