Learning is a spontaneous and continuous social process in human life in which man or learner learns himself through his experiences interacting with his environment. The child is easily connected to the environment around him, due to which he feels comfortable to learn under natural conditions. This law or principle of learning is called constructivism in which the child creates or constructs his own knowledge by interacting with his environment. It would be more accurate if constructivism is called a natural or naturalistic theory of learning. Emphasis should be laid on making teaching student-centred rather than teacher-centred because the traditional method of teaching does not provide opportunities to the students to interact, and this method encourages rote system. Whereas the first duty of the teacher is to develop the inherent abilities of the students. During teaching-learning, the teacher should provide such opportunities to the students in which the learning meaning of the students can be complete, permanent, and easy. If the method of teaching used by the teacher is meaningful, then the learning becomes interesting, simple, and easy. Along with pedagogy, the teacher should also keep in mind the interests and needs of the students.
