Separate behaviour is when someone tries to remain 'objective' and 'factual', and tends to defend their own ideas using logic to find holes in their opponent's ideas.
Connected behaviour is a more empathic approach that accepts subjectivity, trying to listen and ask questions in an effort to understand the other point of view.
Constructed behaviour is when a person is sensitive to both of these approaches and is able to choose either of them as appropriate to the current situation.
Constructionist learning is inspired by the constructivist theory that individual learners construct mental models to understand the world around them. However, constructionism holds that learning occurs when people create artifacts designed to be shared with others. Teaching and learning are not discrete tasks but integrated.The interactive web is ideal for constructionist learning. Creating wikis, blogs, podcasts and mindmaps with the intention of learning, reflecting and sharing are examples of constructionism. Papert, S., & Harel, I. (1991). Situating Constructionism.

People learn by doing and making
Blog,wiki, mindmap, podcast
Guided, Collaborative, publicly shared
Learners create artifacts that reflect their learning
Teacher and learner are not separate roles--you learn as you teach, teach as you learn.
We shape our tools then they shape us
Groups construct knowledge for one another, collaboratively creating a small culture of shared artifacts with shared meanings.
When one is immersed within a culture like this, one is learning all the time about how to be a part of that culture, on many levels.
People construct their knowledge of the world by interacting with reality
New experience is tested against previous knowledge and organized into a personal framework
No objective and obdurate reality, we create reality
