Constructivism, an umbrella term for many different educational approaches, finds its origins in the work of Jerome Bruner, a psychologist who
developed a framework for instruction based upon child development and cognition research. In his 1966 book, Toward a Theory of Instruction, he
described learning as an active process and laid out cognitive science principles that support effective instruction.

Hypertext theorist of course get all googly eyed over Derrida, too. So,
I'll close with this quote from Post Card, that very weird ramble that
Derrida goes into about a postcard he found that seems to depict Socrates

"What I prefer, about post cards, is that one does not know what is in front
or what is in back, here or there, near or far, the Plato or the Socrates,
recto or verso. Nor what is the most important, the picture or the text,
and in the text, the message ro the caption, or the address. Here, in my
post card apocalypse, there are proper names, S. and p., above the picture,
and reversibility unleashes itself, goes mad."
