PIONEERS IN EDUCATION AND THEIR CONTRIBUTIONS
Jean-Jacques Rousseau
(1712 – 1778)
Educational Ideas of Rousseau
Rousseau conveyed his educational philosophy through his novel, Emile.
Emile was the story of a boy’s education from infancy to adulthood.
He against child depravity doctrine and book dominated education but believed that children’s instincts and needs are naturally good.
Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi
(1746-1827)
Educational ideas of Pestalozzi
Develop schools:
Like loving families
Nurture children’s development
Agreed with Rousseau
Human are naturally good but spoiled by corrupt society
Traditional schools followed dull routines (memorization and recitation)
Educational reform could improve society

JOHANN FRIEDRICH HERBERT
(1776-1841)

He emphasized the stages of human development.
Rousseau identified five development stages :
Infancy – (birth to age five)
Childhood – (ages five to twelve)
Boyhood – (ages twelve to fifteen)
Adolescence – (ages fifteen to eighteen)
Youth – (ages eighteen to twenty)

Rousseau was suspicious of schools, he believed taught children to conform to society’s artificial rules rather than live according to nature.
Rousseau highlighted key ideas
Childhood is the natural foundation for future human growth and development
Children’s natural interests and instincts will lead to a more thorough exploration of the environment
Human beings, in their life cycles, go through necessary stages of development
Adult coercion negatively impacts children’s development.
