Why Educators Need to Know Learning Theory

Why Educators Need to Know Learning Theory | Emily's World | Scoop.it

This article covers three categories of learning theories, objectivist, constructivist, andconnectivist. Connectivism is relatively new [2004]. Its theoretical principles describe how learning happens within a networked and connected society. Objectivist and constructivist theories have, and continue to have, significant influence on teaching methods and practices in K-12, higher education and professional development programs. Connectivism on the other hand, is associated with learning in an open virtual space on the web, typically in massive open online courses or MOOCs. The theories differ significantly in the perspectives on learning, though each has influenced and shaped instructional methods and practices to some degree. An example is assessment practices using standardized tests. This method is based upon principles of the behaviorist learning theory: instructor delivers content → student studies to commit knowledge to memory → completes an assessment → feedback is provided on his or her responses. This is one example I use here to [try to] emphasize the point that educators are better equipped to handle a variety of learning situations with an understanding of how these theories affect teaching methods.

Physics can be studied through any sport or dance and this looks like an interesting way to learn concepts first hand.
