Constructivist Approach to Early Childhood Education : Reflections on Constructivist Teaching
Sun Young Kim
The purpose of this article was to clarify the meaning of constructivist teaching and to improve methods related to constructivist teaching. As a theory of learning, constructivism is serving as the basis for many of the current reforms in education. Many educators, however, misconceive what constructivist teaching means. The application of Piagetian theory to early childhood education was reviewed and analyzed. This article provides the overarching principles of constructivist teaching in early childhood classrooms with emphasis on illumination of the misconception. It postulates that constructivist teachers find their own autonomously selected ways to integrate the principles of constructivist teaching.
