This morning, I had a glimpse at one of the videos on Educational Philosophy. Initially, I thought of not even looking at it. But later, I realised, it would be a 'crime' to ignore it. Very quickly some of the 'educational basics' were flashing through my mind: Conditioning, Connectionism and Law of Effect, Progressive Education, Constructivism, Social Cognitive Theory, Situated Learning, Community of Practice, Constructionism . Reason I am mentioning them, because I wanted to see if the 'Auto-correction' system in this word processor can recognise them. I was amazed how the auto correct system failed to identify these words as valid terms in our world!
I will end today's conversation with the following quote:
"We always seem to think about how does technology influence learning. Sometimes these roles actually have to be reversed. We have to think about how learning influences technology because there are greater changes occurring in our society and not just within technology." (Siemens on Technology and Learning).
Sometimes, in our busy school life, we want to find answer to some of the 'things' we do. I figured out something- most of the answers are/ were given by Educational Philosophers, in particular and philosophers, in general.
