This article provides an overview of constructivism and its implications for classroom practices. To that end, it first describes the basic features of constructivism along with its major forms or variations. It then elucidates the constructivist view of knowledge, learning, teach- ing, and the relationship among these constructs. More specifically, it explains the assumptions and principles of constructivist pedagogy, bringing to the fore its core characteristics that differ fundamentally from other instructional paradigms. Last, the article presents how con- structivism as a learning theory can guide the process of learning and teaching in real classroom settings.
