SERRANO GONZALEZ-TEJERO, José Manuel  e  PONS PARRA, Rosa María. Constructivism Today: Constructivist Approaches in Education. REDIE [online]. 2011, vol.13, n.1, pp. 1-27. ISSN 1607-4041.

This article presents an analysis of constructivism and constructivist approaches in education, and establishes a system of spatial coordinates in which different approaches are located, so as to place them then, on an established continuum based on the mechanisms and on the inter-mental and intra-mental components in play in the process of knowledge construction. After a brief discussion of these approaches and theories, we analyze the general structure underlying them all and locating a possible constructivist approach in the area of competencies. This is done by means of a constructivist analysis of teaching and learning processes, based on the concept that this idea engenders the project Definition and Selection of Competencies. We conclude with a possible work agenda offered by constructivism as the next challenge.

Palavras-chave : Constructivism; competence; teaching methods; learning methods.
