The analysis of the article of construction of knowledge from the learning of individuals. The research was conducted by Emel Ültanır, whose main tenet of the study was that the interrelationship between an individual and the world is based on constructivist of the person. Individual knowledge learned need is applied in the real conditions world but in a constructive way. An individual knowledge is made of sensation and cognition. This also influences the individual experiences.
The research borrows information from other conducted researches thus the method of data collection is secondary. This means that the information provided if from the review of literatures done on constructivist theory. The participants in the research are mainly other researchers who have done the same nature of the study. These are such as John Dewey, (1859-1952), Jean Piaget, Lev Vigotsky, Carl Rogers.
The research analysis was done in July 2012, where the author, Emel Ültanır, conducted the review of the various researches by other constructivist theorists. Data collection is mainly from the secondary sources. The data were collected to cover the study gap left by the researchers on how individual experience and knowledge is influence of the structural nature of the world or individual surroundings.
The most of the information used in making the conclusion is based on the research done by other researchers. This means that the information is secondary. This shows that the information gathered does not fully cover the context under study. Most of the researches used were conducted in the 18 century. The world has changed and individual knowledge and perception has also changed. Use of the theory to analyze the current condition may fail to fully cover the area under study.
The conclusion of the study indicates that the constructivist theory applies in influencing the nature of perception and understanding of an individual. The based example of the analysis is a student, where the teacher only guides the student in gaining the necessary knowledge. The nature of individual perception and knowledge of the objective of the study where the goal was to evaluate the impact of the surrounding environment on the individual’s capabilities.
