Commentary on the chapters on the construction of knowledge

ByIVY KIDRON, JOHN MONAGHAN

Our reflections on the four chapters in Part 1 took us in many directions but here we address just three themes: theoretical frameworks; knowledge and learning; individual and social construction of knowledge. Behind these themes is the question, can these chapters contribute to a consistent wider understanding and analysis of knowledge construction? For brevity we refer to the chapters as SDH, T&M, YER and H&P.
