Constructing and Transforming

Within the week 4 Learning Material for EDC3100, we have been required to turn our focus onto Assignment 2 and look at specific Curriculum Content Descriptors which Construct and Transform student knowledge for the development of a unit plan.

The student learning of Constructing and Transforming Knowledge fits in with the research surrounding that we have two types of knowledge:

Declarative Knowledge (Constructing) – Knowledge and Understanding

Procedural Knowledge (Transforming) – Ways of Working

This link provides a very clear description of the two, as well as how they apply in classroom practices.

Another resource that has really assisted me in developing a clearer understanding of this is the always helpful, Bloom’s Taxonomy!

Go have a read of Leisha’s blog where she also discusses this concept and the trouble she has had with distinguishing the two forms of knowledge.

Always Learning,

Ellen
