The learning platform, Moodle, is based on the concept of Socio-onstructivist pedagogy. Proponents of Constructionist Learning believe that knowledge is developed or ‘constructed’ in the mind of the student through collaborative learning processes rather than being merely passed on through traditional text books and teacher-to-student teaching methods.
Instead of simply distributing information which they believe students should read and retain, teachers that use a constructionist approach create a student-centred environment for each student, which empowers him or her to construct new knowledge through stimulated processes of inquiry and collaborative discussion.
Constructionist learning is at times seen as a contrast to results-driven education, such as the No Child Left Behind Act in the United States which emphasizes assessment by results rather than teaching techniques or pedagogy, thereby running the risk of neglecting learning in favour of a maximum number of passes.
All our courses use an e-learning (‘electronic learning’) methodology with variations according to the scope and level of the course chosen.
