Play

Can we find a model for knowledge acquisition that respects the individual by combining aspects of the dominant learning theories, instead of discarding them entirely?

Topics:
1. John, the Admin of the Libertarian Teachers Group at schoolsucksproject.com, posted an interesting piece in the forum called Learning Theories and their Subsequent Pedagogy – Which one is most Libertarian?
2. Osborne and I discuss this post on our 3-21-13 live show, and I read a paper I wrote in 2002 called "My Philosophy of Education", written for an Intro to Education class.
3. I provide more detail of the newest of the learning theories: connectivism
4. I try to answer the question, Which learning theory is most Libertarian?
