3. The Constructivists thinking skills is this:

I agree to what Constructivist learning intended. Learning is a process which not


always includes teacher who will always serves as lecturers and they will just discuss
what the students need to learn. Learning can also happen without their full attention
and in this situation, teachers can clearly see how the students will act so that they can
foster their learning without the support of the teacher. An example of this is group
activities such as debates or oral performances. In this kind of activities, students will be
accountable for their learning and their classmates. Through this, teachers can clearly
identify whether the students learn of they need reinforcements.

5. Why use technology in Teaching? Answer this question based on what you learned
from this lesson. Present it……

As a future educator, we must indicate the application of Technology as it


supports the students learning and as it helps to bridge the gaps between the diverse
types/kinds of learner. We also use technology as help in teaching. In particularly in
making our Instructional Materials. Instead of cutting out strip of papers, cartolina,
charts or visual aids we can use different software that can the same thing in a better
way. Applications like PowerPoints Presentations, Movie Maker, Audio Editor and Prezi
which are software that can help us to foster learning and so that we are able to not
just give the student knowledge but also to be entertained.
