SOCIAL ACTIVISM THEORY BY JOHN DEWEY
Transcript of SOCIAL ACTIVISM THEORY BY JOHN DEWEY
It is founded on the belief that " Learning takes place on a social environment where there are collaborative activities"
Learners communicate, interact and learn from each other.
learning is only useful in the context of social experience
there are 5 principles of Dewey's word on social activism
1)Curriculum should arise from students' interest
2)Curriculum topics should be integrated rather than isolated from each other
3)Education is growth rather than an end in itself.
4)Education occurs through its connection with life.Rather than participation through curriculum
5)Learning should be hands-on experience based,rather than abstract.
COMMON TEACHING PRACTICE
The major focus for this theory is a project based learning
According to Grant, " Individuals construct knowledge through interaction with their environment"
John Dewey's approach is the hands-on and experience-based.
Meaningful learning applies when students work together on something that are of the same interests
John Dewey( 1859-1952)
An American psychologist, educator and philosopher
His radical activism is the reason behind his education belief
Examples of the teaching practices
Students must participate in an engaging activities
For example: a lab experimentation that focuses on the students ability to investigate objects, materials, phenomena and ideas.
This ensures that there will be no "passive classroom learning"
For instance, the teacher must always encourage the students to talk, express themselves more rather than just give them the learning information
