Abstract

The paper explores theoretical assumptions of social skills while learning in group with the view to constructivist learning theory. Fundamental basis of social constructivism is social interaction, stressing importance of social exchanges for cognitive growth and/or impact of cultural and historic context on learning. Assumptions of social constructivism reflect integration of information literacy to educational curriculum. Information literacy is transformation of information to perceived and meaningful knowledge. Social interaction is created in group learning, passing through group development stages, such as group formation, differentiation, integration, maturity and group finalizing.
