CONSTRUCTIVISM Constructivism is a view of learning based on the belief that knowledge isn't a thing that can be simply given by the teacher at the front of the room to students in their desks. Rather, knowledge is constructed by learners through an active, mental process of development where learners are the builders and creators of meaning and knowledge.

COGNITIVISM Cognitivism is also known as cognitive development. The underlying concepts of cognitivism involve how we think and gain knowledge. Cognitivism involves examining learning, memory, problem solving skills, and intelligence.

CONSTRUCTIVISM EFFORT TO LEARN: prepare oneself before entering class. does revision regularly.

COGNITIVISM EFFORT TO LEARN: create our own study groups. have timetable.

Research suggests that constructivist teaching is an effective way to teach. It encourages active and meaningful learning and promotes responsibility and autonomy. It is important for teachers to grow professionally towards a constructivist practice. When creating and implementing a learning environment, it is imperative that the teachers not only create a setting that promotes learning, but also take the time to understand each child. Classrooms are widely diverse and complex because students learn differently and are at various developmental levels. It is important that teachers create a learning environment that encourages students to do their best and makes learning interesting. This creates a motivational climate within the classroom.
