Irealized that every time when I was studying about any learning theory I had one of those moments of "aha" and related to my way of learning. During the first weeks we learned about behaviorism, cognitivism, and constructivism and discuss about how we personally learn in relation to those three theories. I posted in the classroom discussion board that I was using multiple ways to learn from behaviorism to constructivism.
ometimes I used the cognitivism theory encoding information and related to previous information to store it and use it when need it. I learned that sometimes is easier for me to organize information in chunks, and that the more senses I use to learn then it will be easier for me to retrieve information.
"Constructivism"Many times I find myself talking with peers about any specific topic and helping each other to construct our ideas using our past knowledge and discussing how to use and implement the new information. Sometimes I construct my knowledge using the information that I know with the one provided by the instructor to understand better the new information.
