    Teacher practices are partially determined by their implicit epistemological beliefs: "whether a teacher expects students to act as passive receivers of information ( = the objectivist classroom) or as active builders of understanding ( = the constructivist classroom)." A total of 349 responses were obtained from students of which 39 (11.2%) chose the objectivist classroom and 310 (88.8%) chose the constructivist one. "After administering the question sheet with the concept cartoons, some teachers from the schools involved expressed surprise at the large proportion of student selecting the constructivist classroom, given that their students had seemed so comfortable in an objectivist one. Students who selected the constructivist classroom fell into three dominant categories which consider class B to be more interesting, more effective and allowing the students to have greater ownership of their own learning.

    This vision for the classroom of the future is not new. It's one that people have talked and dreamed about for years in a variety of forms: Students partake in interactive learning with computers and other technology devices; teachers roam around as mentors and individual learning coaches; learning is tailored to each student's differences; students are engaged and motivated.
