Imagine your class …

Welcome to Cognitive Construction

Active, engaged students … that’s what we’re all about here at Cognitive Construction. Our aim is to help you develop broad, deep, and flexible knowledge structures with your students through critical cognition. Critical cognition builds knowledge structures on a foundation of rigorous social assessment of facts, suppositions, beliefs, and ideologies presented in the development of meaning.

We believe that learning environments, be they K-12, college, graduate, or professional learning environments, should be active environments within which teachers and learners interact and construct new meaning and knowledge. As we build out our site, we will provide you with:

  • strategies to plan and construct active classroom learning
  • techniques to enhance teacher-student, student-student, and student-environment learning opportunities
  • tools to build constructive learning communities
  • contemporary discussion of cognition and learning
  • classes to help you gain more skill in building better knowledge structures

We’ll be building our site out over the next few weeks. Here’s what we’ll look like when the site is built out:
