Transcript of John Dewey

"Arriving at one goal is the starting point to another." John Dewey Justin, Krystina, Kelly Dewey believed in interactive teaching opposed to only reading from the book, such as learning math by figuring it out by cooking with proportions
He believed that education needs to be gradual, starting from main concepts and building on ,similar to a tree
He advocated for education to be balanced between the student's interest and delivering knowledge
Dewey strongly believed that a school needs to be a social environment
Some of his views originated from Aristotle, Plato, and Confucius. Biography - Core Philosophy Prevalence Today A great deal of our school experience was inspired by Dewey's theories. For example, modern teaching is a lot more interactive compared to when Dewey was proposing his theories. "The idea of traditional education for Dewey is essentially what today we consider to be the stereotypical classroom: teacher standing at the front of the room, children sitting in desks, note-taking from books, lectures, etc."
School as we know it way may not have come to be had it not been for Dewey's theories on how every child understands and learns at different levels.
