Description: Constructionism asserts that knowledge is not simply transmitted from teacher to student, but is actively constructed by the mind of the learner, and that learners are particularly likely to create new ideas when they are actively engaged in making external artifacts that they can reflect upon and share with others. The research of the Epistemology and Learning Group develops new technological tools to support children as designers, helping them create their own video games, robots, and simulations. The projects also probe how and what children learn through the process of designing and making. Members, themes, projects, papers, and seminars.
