My Learning Philosophy

Pulling together to solve a problem

So now that I have established my personal learning theory, I set out to build my learning philosophy where I incorporate my beliefs about myself as a learner and incorporate a learning theory that accounts for the present culture and education environment. I believe that instead of teachers lecturing, standardized testing, memorization and worksheets (Behaviorism), I emphasize and model that educators should allow for opportunities where students collaborate and create learning experiences that are authentic and engaging knowing that each student will process the knowledge in their own unique way. Studying about the learning theories has been fascinating as I can see where each one has impacted me in my years in education.
