Tuesdays, 10:15a&#150;12:15p, OS210A

The Learning Environments course is a reading/discussion course focusing on the intersection of technology, pedagogy, and learning.  We will review learning theories of constructivism (Piaget), socio-constructivism (Vygotsky), and constructionism (Papert). 

Then we will read and discuss pedagogical approaches and technological supports for learning in a variety of specific domains, including mathematics, science, and computer science.

The class will be reading and discussion-oriented, with some writing assignments over the semester.  A term paper will be assigned.

[[<<]]

Here is a partial list of authors whom we will read:

* Edith Ackermann (discussion of learning theories; kids' relationships with tangible objects; constructionism)
* Richard Lesh (learning to think mathematically)
* Wolff-Michael Roth (learning physics)
* William Sandoval; Chinn and Samarapungavan (knowing in science)
* du Boulay; Elliot Soloway; Robins, Rountree & Rountree (learning how to program)
* Ann Brown (design-based research)
* Donald Schön (&#147;reflective practitioner&#148;; knowing-in-action)
* Lucy Suchman
* Lave/Wenger -- Communities of Practice / Legitimate Peripheral Participation
