Learning Theories

In today’s high tech world, limiting learning only at the knowledge will not only bound students’ abilities but will also hurt them in a long run. I believe that children should be given opportunities beyond knowledge level to discover their own world and recognize their own capabilities. Gardner identified nine different intelligences commonly known as Gardner’s multiple intelligences. My subpages include learning materials and activities such that it encompasses numerous of the intelligences that he mentioned in his theory. These subpages include pictures and Xtranormal videos to cater visual learners. The Xtranormal videos also have some background music to include students who learn and concentrate better with music. The subpages also have colorful text to accommodate students who are linguistic and intrapersonal. The best of all, there are hands-on activities that are aligned with the text to support students who are kinesthetic learners.

Constructivist theory calls for active learning. According to Jean Piaget’s constructivism, the learning takes place at its best when students actually do something hands-on. I do believe that the best way the students learn is by having them construct their own knowledge instead of having someone construct it for them. I believe that my subpages justify this theory well enough. The learning is delivered in many different forms to accommodate different learners, thus students can gain knowledge such that it fulfill their learning needs and style. In this way, students will gain deeper level of knowledge and will retain it for a longer period.
