Abstract

Making the transition from an instructive classroom to a constructive learning environment is difficult for the best teachers, and seemingly impossible for beginning teachers to manage. This paper presents techniques that were used for converting existing science units into constructivist experiences through the use of computer-based Mindtools (Jonassen, 1999) as the unifying principle. Students remain at the center of their own learning, even as direct instruction is added to the environment.
