Application of the Cellular Learning Theory Model to the Professional Education of Preservice Teacher Trainees and the Inservice Training of Classroom Teachers and Supervisors.
Peters, Richard O.
The Cellular Learning Theory Model is based on the premise that all formalized instruction and pedagogical strategies can be reduced to a common denominator: personal interactions with people, places, and things. The learning/teaching process consists of two unique, but interrelated variables: primary and secondary cells. Primary Learning Cells are those organizational structures/patterns directly related to instruction and learning, e.g., self contained classrooms, team teaching, and individualized instruction. Secondary Learning Cells include Instructional Media Cells that have a specific effect upon learning and skills, and Organizational Cells, which are strategies and designs used to affect learning and to maximize human interactions. A description is offered of how this model enables the teacher to dissect the complicated and multifaceted instructional process and to analyze the components which make up a particular lesson or learning activity.
