The definitions were operational. When you hear a lecture on organic chemistry it draws on your knowledge of spatial geometry and high school level talk about orbitals and valancies. One spirals, with previously learned content allowing for extension through omni-triangulation (a fancy way of saying, connecting the dots, using the terminology of map-making). Constructivism / Constructionism is about taking responsibility for creating one's mental maps aka models. Anti-constructionists would prefer you outsource any model-making to them, the authorities who know better.
Recog is the lecture about chemistry (on Youtube, some Stanford professor maybe), recall is doing it yourself in the lab, hands-on (means you need to go somewhere interesting, they send around a van, might say Intel on the door, among other sponsors).

I think my terms were coherent. You're having trouble following but that's not surprising given I'm thinking outside your box and you're what's known in the business as an "in the box" thinker.

I'm glad you admit that it's babysitting. When we almost had a teachers strike here recently it was "send your kid with a book, our subs won't teach them anything as we work with the union negotiators, but the day care functions will be continued, as we know you all have jobs other than parenting."
