The article provides author's conclusions on the impact of constructivism, which has been widely recognized as an approach to e-learning, on education. The author enumerates the benefits constructivism offers for education yet mostly underlines its negative implications. It is argued that the problem with constructivism is that it causes devaluation of the role of the teacher, and consequently, the loss of the aim of teaching, the appearance of the phenomenon of 'false consensous' and the students' excessive sense of relativism of knowledge.
