According to the constructivist learning theory, knowledge is constructed as student integrate new information with their pre-existing knowledge base.

Proponents of constructivism suggest that students learn best when they are actively engaged in  performing activities that relates to their real world.  In essence, constructivists would like for students to “think like a scientist.”
