He argues that a full-bodied embrace of constructivist theory requires that educators forgo knowledge as we know it and recommends a rhetorical approach to constructivist instruction that recognizes the cultural, social, and behavioral practices which play an enormous role in defining learners real worlds. Applying this critique to the field of educational technology, the author does not merely lament constructivist theorys current shortcomings, but offers a means by which these shortcomings can be engaged and, perhaps, overcome.
