Fitzgerald the capacity of self-feedback and to deliver their own reinforcers is an important goal for educators and has a powerful and lasting effect on student learning. Although other types of consequences are available (see Fitzgerald & Walker [2005] for a review), their effect is to decrease behavior, rather than to increase it as reinforcement does.

In constructivism, the learner engages in the world through experimentation and discovery, both naturally and in programmed settings. Learning activities that are most valued by Piaget are those where children are allowed to experiment, analyze, and draw their own conclusions. Teachers arrange and facilitate experiences to help students discover information through questions, probes, and other strategies (also called the clinical method). Because learners are expected to actively construct new knowledge from these experiences, it is important that learners are properly prepared for this level of independence in their learning.

However, these individuals represent the exception, rather than the rule. Most individuals require extensive welldesigned instruction to understand the advances in geometry and physics (to name just a few areas) that these individuals brought about.
