Summary of the Learning theory

            What all the theories basically say is that children learn from cognitive, emotional and environmental influences in a child’s life. The theory is used to describe how people learn and in ways it helps us learn how to teach others. In terms of the Bloom’s Taxonomy, there are three specific types of learning: cognitive, affective and psychomotor. Each discuss ways that learners connect with things through their five senses. They also uses their feelings and personalities to make connections and they build on experiences. In other word no person ever stops learning from their mistakes and there accomplishments.

            Constructive learning is basically the same thing except they focus more on teaching students things that will more likely peak their interests, which in my opinion can be done with any style since they are going to be sampling different things at once. Multiple Intelligence is more curious about what makes children tick, basically what in their past has made them who they are today.
