Firstly, I will talk about the Constructivism theory is which known for a long time extends across the centuries. However, according to Applefield, Huber & Moallem (2000) unlike other theories, the Constructivism theory view was that learning is inseparable from the developmental evolution of the relationship between subject and object. More than that, the theory based on observation and scientific study, their view was that each learner has his own way of understanding by builds information and knowledge of the world within the surrounding environment, society and experiencing things which live a significant impact in the construction of knowledge. Nevertheless, the learner in the Constructivism theory builds knowledge within individual mind…show more content…
One of the strengths in the Constructivism theory is, it makes the learner the centered of the education process by activating its role, and letting the learner discovers and performs activities (Mergel, 1998). In my opinion, that will give the learner the opportunity to represent the role of scientists; this develops has the positive trend towards science and scientists and to the community and the various issues and problems. In the other hand, one of the weaknesses in the Constructivism theory that the theory relies on the access of the information to the learner main who form this information in a personal sense (Mergel, 1998). In my opinion, that might cause issues in solving some of the problems that the learner faces in his life because each learner will solve the problem based on the personal meaning of the information. In addition, one of the strengths in the Behaviorism theory is the learner is focusing on one clear objective that he should achieve.

In my opinion, that can cause…show more content…
More than that, the education process cannot succeed without the use of the right tools that assist the teacher promoting the enhancement and development of educationally. On the other hand, the Constructivism theory view was that the learner must ask questions, explore, and evaluate what he know in order to build his information and knowledge. Nevertheless, the learning in this theory combined with experience, not by instruction. In my opinion, from the above I learned that they contain educational ways provide better educated if they combined together because each one of them might fit a certain learners or learning environment available species. However, I think it is advisable to apply them in schools and universities. Because it is based on the not rush and provide information to the learner on plates of gold, but the learner has to fight to get this
