Dervin states, as an individual moves through an experience it is potentially a sense making moment. This is something to keep in mind. Students need to experience things in order to make sense of it. So how can I make it a meaningful experience for my students in order to make sense of the topics? Baggio talks about Constructivism focusing on the learner instead of the instructor. It also has a collaborative nature which works well in a technology society. Baggio also talks about how in a constructionist approach, the learner doesn't necessarily learn from an instructor. I wonder how this would look in a second grade classroom?
I agree with Baggio when she says that it is important to have visuals for students to learn. As she mentions, most people are visual learners and it is important to show information through visuals. When I create lessons I try to make sure I have something for the students to see to connect what they are learning. For example, if I am teaching contractions I find a Youtube video or song to help students remember the concept. Lastly, I found it mind blowing the section about imagination. She mentions that all inventions, creations and technology were once part of someones imagination. I feel this was an eye opener for me. I do not feel kids these days use their imagination like they use to. So my last question would be, how can I help my students use their imaginations and be creative?
