Connectivism and Teacher Constructivism in Science and Technology Education Focusing on Inquiry-based Science Education

  • XVII IOSTE SYMPOSIUM Science and Technology Education for a P IOSTE


Connectivism as a new pedagogical theory was recently born as a response to the fast ICT development. All students and young teachers are already members of the NET-generation. Teachers build up their pedagogical content knowledge, skills and competences using their own experience from teaching and thus connecting pedagogical theory and classroom practice, which can be defined as teacher constructivism. Inquiry-based science education is an appropriate innovative educational strategy based on student and teacher constructivism. This study presents the results of design-based research on the influence of connectivist factors on science and technology education, with an emphasis on teacher constructivism.
