Education and Learning

THIS SITE IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION:-) BUT, CHECK IT OUT ANYWAY. THERE IS A LOT OF WORK THAT NEEDS TO BE DONE.

 

We all have theoretical principles that dictate our actions and behavior, and this particularly is the case when it comes to our understanding of education, teaching, and learning. Understanding what these terms mean is determined by our own ontology. Our own way of viewing the world. This way inevitably has been learned.

Learning inherently is a social phenomenon. Nobody learns on their own. Even the student sitting in a dormitory room reading a book alone still relies on others for that event to happen. That learning is social is irrefutable and essential to being human.

Language is a transient phenomenon, see dialogic learning, dialogic imagination (self also is transient)
