Educating for the Real World: An Illustration of John Dewey's Principles of Continuity and Interaction
Bassey, Magnus O.
Educational Studies, v36 n1 p13-20 Feb 2010
The principles of interaction and continuity (intersection between experience and education) form a major part of John Dewey's philosophical discourse. According to Dewey, these principles determine the quality of educative experience for meaningful life-long learning. In this article, I argue that nowhere is the relationship between experience and education better illustrated than in Carter G. Woodson's work, "The mis-education of the Negro", and in Malcolm X's intrinsic life experiences.
