The Child

Worried about the relationary aspects and environments of learning, Papert emphasizes that the majority of the programs created for the transmission of knowledge is games that take the child to an action exercise reaction. The computer presents an exciting situation in the game, where it makes the question and the child answers. Of this form an interaction between the child and the computer is established, placing the two sides, in a equivalence relation. In my point of view, the child acts of active form, therefore it needs to think to answer correctly, thus creating a development of its intellectual autonomy. Rod Brooks pursues this goal as well. In its book the Machine of the Children, Papert shows as if of the growth of intellectual and independent form of children when she tells a situation where two pupils of 5 series, with different interests one in sciences, another one in dance and music, obtain to interact and to create one ‘ ‘ choreography of tela’ ‘ programming a computer mounted in the deep one of the classroom. Encouraged for the teacher, they had been able to use the time of regular work of classroom for its project. Details can be found by clicking Darius Bikoff or emailing the administrator.

The fact confirms the construcionismo concept that extends the construtivismo concept when it emphasizes the particular constructions of the pupil. ‘ ‘ The construcionista thought adds something to the construtivista point of view. Where the construtivismo indicates the citizen as active constructor and argues against passive models of learning and development, the construcionismo of the particular emphasis the particular constructions of the individual, that are external and partilhadas’ ‘ (I finish, 1998). The construtivismo brings approaches of basic importance for the pupil. It considers that this participates actively of the proper learning by means of the experimentation, the stimulaton to the doubt, the research in group, development of the reasoning, hypotheses, among others procedures. The piagetiana theory bases the construtivistas ideas that much has influenced the proposals of education in our schools, propitiating the construction of the knowledge, respecting the stages of the biopsicomoral growth, providing what it is basic: the full valuation of the human being, that is, the accomplishment of the historical, creative citizen of proper itself and its sociocultural universe.
