Knowledge is actively built. Students construct their own knowledge of the world through experiences. They fit new information with what they already know. Students must think critically about what they are learning to make sense of the world through their own experiences and by thinking for themselves.

Collaborating allows students opportunities to talk things through with others. This thinking and discussion helps them make sense of what they are learning.
