  • 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)”

      These are 'influential presentations' but far better suited to the higher level thinker than the Year 6 class. YouTube is better for variety of video.

      These are indeed 'influential presentations' but better suited to higher level thinkers - not an upper primary class. YouTube offers better suited, more catchy videos.

      While TED looks to be useful and informative for adults, I have found it difficult to find any presentations relevant to the grade 5 and 6 level.

      Love the variety of videos available! (May need to be sifted through and checked to be sure of credibility)

      TED is an acronym for Technology, Entertainment, Design. It is a series of videos of 'great minds' speaking on their area of expertise. You could find small snippets of really good stuff - but YouTube has shorter, catchier, more visually stimulating stuff
