me.edu.au (myedna) » I know it works, but is the theory valid? - 2 views

  • Common  sense tells us that learning is enhanced by social activity, which is the basic idea underlying the use of Web 2.0 tools. But is there educational theory to support it? Of the three dominant theories, one strongly emphasises the importance of social interaction. The theory of Social Constructivism is well established. Vygotsky is considered the father of the concept. As the Wikipedia says in its excellent entry, “Where Piaget argued that people should create their own version of the truth, Vygotsky added the importance of discussing this version of truth with others, in order to, through the process of mediation, get to a higher order of truth that has also been socially tested (Derry 1999)”
