Constructivism Continuum Case

Congratulations! You have been hired for your ideal coaching position, in your ideal school district, or with the minor or major league team that you have been eyeing.

Living up to your “ideal” expectations, your new boss has been selected to host a panel discussion among a number of leading, world-renown scholars in teaching and sports coaching. Leading this panel discussion will be Ernst von Glasersfeld, L. S. Vygotsky (miraculously brought to life and speaking fluent English), and Jerome Bruner.

To your dismay, you find that your excitement about this opportunity is not shared among your colleagues at the school or in the community. Upon a meeting with your boss, you learn why ? unfortunately, your colleagues are not well-informed on the insights that these famous scholars have contributed to our understanding of constructivist-based teaching and learning. You begin to realize that while your colleagues speak of constructivism regularly, they are not well-informed of its foundations or the various perspectives from which constructivism is often interpreted. Also, your colleagues are not innovative thinkers when it comes to applying constructivism to coaching.

Given your insights and interest in this area, your boss has asked you to assist in preparing your colleagues for this “once in a lifetime” opportunity.

This brings you to your next Case Assignment.

First: prepare a PowerPoint presentation that illustrates the following different perspectives of constructivism:

  • Radical Constructivism
  • Social Constructivism
  • Cognitive Constructivism

To “illustrate” each perspective, also address each item below:

  • Who is the key theorist associated with each perspective?
  • How does each theorist believe knowledge is constructed, skills are developed, and/or learning occurs?

Second: Supplement your presentation with a narrative depiction of what you will be “saying” for each slide.

Depending on your skill and comfort level with PowerPoint, you may choose any one of the following formats for your supplement:

  • separate Word document
  • the “notes” feature of PowerPoint
  • the “record audio” feature of PowerPoint
