technology supporting innovation
The most widely supported constructivist approaches at present --e.g., 'learning communities,' 'project-based learning,' 'anchored instruction'--all reserve for the teacher or designer the high-level parts of inquiry: the goal-setting, resource providing, monitoring, and modification of goals and strategies in light of progress or difficulties. Knowledge building engages students as fully as possible in the whole range of sociocognitive activity that characterizes a productive adult research or design team, anticipating the time when there is no guide.
