Assignment: Create a visual representation of the three main prevailing theories on learning.
Reflection: After reading about various learning styles, we were asked to come up with a visual representation of how the theories were constructed. I chose to do mine in a way that presented each theory as a tower built on a foundation, with subsequent portions contributing to the overall structure. There is also a sun and a cloud on each structure, representing the positives and negatives. Making this graphic helped me understand the differences and similarities among three major learning theories, as well as find my own comfort zone. Doing this will help me be a more effective educator, since I will be able to articulate not only my views of major learning theories but justify my own views and explain how I will run my classroom.
Standards Addressed: TL-II.B.1 Locate and evaluate current research on teaching and learning with technology when planning learning environments and experiences.
