Constructionism Keywords and Concepts

Keyword and Concept Breakdown

Find keywords is a key part of the ongoing research process.
1) Find synonyms and antonyms,
2) Identify searchable parts of the research question

3) Brainstorm.  Who are people or groups that have something to do with your topic?  What is your topic? is it part of a larger theoretical concept? Is it the current term? What has been similar? What does it do? What groups are affected? Is it based on a time period, is it recurring, is it historical, or is it predictive? Where does this idea come up most? Where did the concept come from? Why is it important? 

4). Acronyms. If an idea has an acronym, be sure to do searches for both the acronym and the full phrase. EX:. Search ACA, and also the Affordable Care Act. If you are able to construct a Boolean search use:  ACA OR Affordable Care Act in the search field. 

What is it? Who came up with it or used it? Why is it different from other learning theories? How is it used, said, shared, or discussed?
