Description. Science Education is now an established field within Education, and worldwide has its own journals, conferences, university departments and so forth. Although a diverse field, a major influence on its development was research considered to be undertaken from a constructivist perspective on learning, and supporting approaches to teaching that themselves became labelled constructivist.
This free course, Primary science: supporting children's learning, provides an opportunity to consider your own experiences, perceptions and attitudes to science.
You will explore and develop some of your scientific knowledge and understanding while considering how you can support primary-aged children's science learning. The aim of the Children’s Learning in Science Project (CLIS) was to discover how to use a constructivist approach to teach selected topics, and translate this into materials which could be used by teachers.
The teaching strategies suggested to achieve the CLIS objectives in lessons include a focus on the. re, and cognitive aspects of learning and teaching science.

It is claimed that constructivism is basically a variant of old-style empiricist epistemology, which had its origins in Aristotle's individualist and sense-based theory of by: science through applying the processes of science in individual inquiries (Bruner, ; National Research Council [NRC], ; Rutherford & Ahlgren, ).
In this paper, we describe a constructivist model we use to help early childhood teachers develop confidence and skill in teaching children how to do science. We call it process-oriented File Size: KB. The constructivism provides a perspective on teaching and learning science in classrooms, with a view to improving the effectiveness of science teaching in enhancing students' learning.
The core view of constructivists on learning science suggests that students construct their knowledge strongly influenced by social environments.
Modern interactive learning in science centers and children’s museums is based on Constructivist Learning Theory. Below is an excerpt from Wikepedia: “Formalization of the theory of constructivism is generally attributed to Jean Paiget, who articulated mechanisms by which knowledge is internalized by learners.
He suggested that through processes of accommodation and assimilation. The aim of the Children’s Learning in Science Project (CLIS) was to discover how to use a constructivist approach to teach selected topics, and translate this into materials which could be used by teachers. These are the key principles of the approach: *What is already in the learners mind matters*Individuals construct their own meanings*The construction of meaning is a continuous and active.
According to some experts, the best way to do so is allowing students the chance to get hands on experiences (Wellington & Ireson, ). Therefore, this research paper is going to focus on the concept of constructivism in the teaching and learning of science.
