CASTELLARO, Mariano Andrés. Theoretical definitions and research areas proposed from constructivism, in Latin American publications of psychologyand education in Database REDALYC. liber. [online]. 2012, vol.18, n.2, pp.131-146. ISSN 1729-4827.

This paper aimed to provide an updated summary of theoretical tendences and research areas proposed from constructivism, in Latin American journals of psychology and education published during last ten years. For that, we explored the database REDALYC, which is considered as one of main Latin American open-access repository, with full text articles linked to psychology and education. First, we analyzed the epistemological assumptions of constructivism. Then, directly related to psychology and education, we reviewed central aspects and internal theoretical distinctions of this perspective. Finally, we identified some research topics studied from constructivism in psychology and education, in explored database. These were grouped into three areas: teaching and learning strategies, science teaching, and incorporation of TICs into teaching and learning process.

Keywords : Constructivism; Education; Latin America; Psychology; REDALYC.
