DEFINITION:Social constructivist approach emphasize the social contexts of learning and idea that knowledge is mutually built and constructed . Involvement with others creates opportunity for students to evaluate and refine their understanding as they are exposed to the thinking of others and as they participates creating shared understanding.(Gauvain & Parke ,2010) In this way, experiences in social contexts provide an important mechanism for the development of students thinking.(Johson & Johson ,2010)5/4/20164PRESENTATION BY MISS MOMINA MUSSARAT ALI
SOCIAL CONSTRUCTIVISM IN THE BROADER CONSTRUCTIVIST CONTEXT: There are two theories related to constructivism in the field of educational psychology .a)VYGOTSKYS SOCIAL THEORY.b)PIAGETS COGNITIVE CONSTRUCTIVISM THEORY. Piagets and Vygotskys theories are constructivist . Piagets theory is a cognitive constructivist theory, where as Vygotskys is a social construcivist . The implication of Vygotskys model for teaching is to establish opportunities for students to learn through social interactions with others with the teacher and peers in constructing knowledge and understanding . In Piagets view , students construct knowledge by transforming , organizing and reorganizing previous knowledge and information . In both Piagets & Vygotskys models , teachers are facilitator not director .Distinctions between cognitive and social constructivist approaches are not always clear cut . All social constructivist approaches emphasize that social factors contribute to students construction of knowedge and understanding.

SITUATED COGNITION:Situated cognition is an important assumption in the social constructivist approaches . It refers to the idea that thinking occurs (is situated) in social and physical contexts . In other words , knowledge is embedded in , and connected to the context in which the knowledge developed(langer , 2009). If this is so , it makes sense to create learning situations that are as close to real world circumstances as possible .5/4/20166PRESENTATION BY MISS MOMINA MUSSARAT ALI
FOR EXAMPLE:Problem Based learning & Project Based learningThese two methods emphasis on situated cognition To expand students knowledge and understanding of volcanos , some students are placed in the role of scientists studying an active volcano , while other students are given the task of reporting what to expect to an emergency evacuation team .Using internet resources , the scientists students examine new stories about active volcanos; the evacuation team students search for information about the impact that volcanos have no inhabitants and how they can be removed from the danger of an erupting volcano. 5/4/20167PRESENTATION BY MISS MOMINA MUSSARAT ALI
