The Creation of Effective Modern Learning Communities: Constructivism in Practice

  • John Abbott
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (volume 105)

Abstract

The following paper is, I suspect, unusual in two ways. Firstly I am essentially a practitioner, rather than a theoretician. I have come to research late in my career… intuitively my experience, first as Principal of a large English Comprehensive School and latterly as Director of an Educational Foundation, has led me into exploring Constructivism from practice rather than theory. Secondly my current research requires me to express theory and research findings in ways which are comprehensible and, dare I say it, inspirational to lay audiences.
