THE STUDENT AS LEARNER.
GUZZETTA, CHARLES
LEARNING THEORIES, METHODOLOGIES, AND PROCESSES ARE DISCUSSED, AND THEIR RELATIONSHIPS TO SOCIAL WORK EDUCATION MARKED. EARLY DISCUSSIONS CENTERED ON WHETHER LEARNING RESULTED FROM SPECIFIC RESPONSES TO SPECIFIC STIMULI OR GENERALIZED RESPONSES TO ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS. TODAY, MOST THEORIZING HAS CONCENTRATED ON SPECIFIC TYPES OF LEARNING, RESULTING IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF MANY EDUCATIONAL INNOVATIONS. THESE INNOVATIONS INCLUDE "EDUCATIONAL HARDWARE" AND CORPORATION MERGERS WHICH HAVE ENABLED EDUCATORS TO TEACH MORE, BETTER AND MORE EFFECTIVELY. THE DANGER LIES IN VIEWING PEOPLE AS OBJECTS TO BE PROCESSED, SORTED, AND GRADED AS WELL AS IN THE TENDENCY TO DO WHAT IS TECHNOLOGICALLY EFFICIENT RATHER THAN PROFESSIONALLY GOOD. DECISIONS ABOUT WHAT NEEDS TO BE TAUGHT SHOULD BE MADE, AND TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATIONS TO CONNECT LEARNING THEORY WITH THE ACT OF TEACHING SHOULD BE USED. THE STUDENT NEEDS TO BE VIEWED AS A PERSON AND NEEDS TO BE TAUGHT BROADENING CONTENT. INDIVIDUALIZED INSTRUCTION, WITH TEACHER-PUPIL INTERACTION, IS NECESSARY. THE STUDENT IS INHERENTLY RESPONSIBLE FOR HIS OWN LEARNING. DIFFERENCES OF OPINION ABOUT THE GOAL AND PROCESS OF EDUCATION CAN BE RESOLVED. THE PRINCIPLES OF VARIOUS LEARNING THEORIES ALL NEED TO BE UTILIZED, EACH IN ITS PLACE, AND EACH WHERE ITS APPLICATION WOULD BE MOST BENEFICIAL. (SK)
