Over the centuries, psychologists and scientists have explained the learning process based on two paradigms-Objectivism and Constructivism. The advent of the Internet ushered in the Web 1.0 initiative in the 1990’s, which evolved into Web 2.0 that emphasizes collaboration, interactivity and dynamism. This paper will attempt to provide an in-depth analysis of the constructivist learning theory in light of emerging technologies and approaches to learning with a focus on Web 2.0.
