learning by building knowledge through doing things with others. This is described as

What is pedagogy?
Dewey (1966) suggested that the learner had to engage and take an active role to make meaning.
Piaget and Vygotsky both proposed constructivist learning theories, where students actively engage in a group in order to make meaning of their learning together
Vygotsky’s zone of proximal development theory suggested that, in order to deepen understanding, we need support from a teacher or peers. This social process helped us to go beyond what we could understand on our own.
