Active-Passive-Intuitive Learning Theory: A Unified Theory of Learning and Development
Sigette, Tyson
Online Submission
This paper addresses many theories of learning and human development which are very similar with regards as to how they suggest learning occurs. The differences in most of the theories exist in how they treat the development of the learner compared to methods of teaching. Most of the major learning theories taught to educators today are based on decades of research; thus, they are decades old. The time has come to unify many of the theories of learning and development into one that takes into account a modern approach utilizing technology and its effect on learning.Active-Passive-Intuitive (API) Theory takes into account several ideas that the great educational psychologists of the twentieth century neglected. Piaget, Erikson, Vygotsky and Gardner have their ideas modernized and combined to include the technological advances of the late twentieth century. API Theory defines an effective modern classroom. It also largely incorporates the ideas of multiple intelligences as differing active processes.
