    Abstract

    An effective teaching process makes it necessary primarily to know the quality of learning and how learning occurs. Learning theories explain in which conditions learning occurs. Also, learning theories set principles for how to realize teaching applications. Recently, constructivism which is accepted as a new learning theory effects learning applications deeply. In constructivism, which wants individuals do not take knowledge passively from the environment but taking responsibility in learning process and being active, learning theories are used such as cooperative learning, problem based learning and project based learning. In this study, firstly perspectives of learning theories from behaviorism to constructivism to learning and teaching are emphasized, then similarities and difference teaching applications which are reflections of constructivism to teaching applications, such as cooperative learning, problem based learning and project based learning are explained by asserting these features of these learning approach.
