I think I created a link to a Discussion page but I really don't know what I'm doing. I'm really confused on how to get this going. I thought I received a message from one of my group members asking for a time to meet up online but now I can't find that message so I'm starting to think I imagined it! I see that Amy has been editing the page but I do not know if another means of communication has already been created and I'm just really behind the loop here. Hopefully I did this correctly and I can get some feedback!

Start by reading the information in Chapters 1 & 2 in your textbook. Google Constructivism, definition, theories, concepts, educational implications, instructional strategies, techniques, methods, ... (gsk)
