    Examining the Role of Re-Presentation in Mathematical Problem Solving: An Application of Ernst von Glasersfeld's Conceptual Analysis.V. V. Cifarelli & V. Sevim - 2014 - Constructivist Foundations 9 (3):360-369.
    Context: The paper utilizes a conceptual analysis to examine the development of abstract conceptual structures in mathematical problem solving. In so doing, we address two questions: 1. How have the ideas of RC influenced our own educational theory? and 2. How has our application of the ideas of RC helped to improve our understanding of the connection between teaching practice and students’ learning processes? Problem: The paper documents how Ernst von Glasersfeld’s view of mental representation can be illustrated in the (...)

    Perspectives on Teaching Architectural Design Based on a Radical Constructivist Model of Knowing.V. V. Cifarelli - 2014 - Constructivist Foundations 9 (3):403-404.
    Open peer commentary on the article “Radical Constructivist Structural Design Education for Large Cohorts of Chinese Learners” by Christiane M. Herr. Upshot: Herr’s target article outlines a teaching approach that illustrates and explains how radical constructivism can be used to teach architectural design principles to a large cohort of students. Herr’s approach consists of a hybrid set of instructional activities whose implementation was supported by her establishment of a social climate in the classroom that encouraged the contributions of individuals in (...)

    Authors' Response: Radical Constructivist Conceptual Analyses in Mathematical Problem Solving and Their Implications for Teaching.V. Sevim & V. V. Cifarelli - 2014 - Constructivist Foundations 9 (3):386-392.
    Upshot: In this response to the open peer commentaries on our target article, we address two emerging themes: the need to explicate further the nature of learning processes from a radical constructivist perspective, and the need to investigate further the implications of our research for classroom teaching.
