Resolved Question:

Ok, this is from the educational theory class. I need to know if the schools today apply the educational theories (Behavirism, Cognitivism, contructivism, ..) even if rhey were old learning theories found by dead Western men? Do we still use thier theories to inform how we teach today? Or we use one more than another? Or we are not using them heavily anymore and what new theories may influence today's class?

In today's educational realm, teachers are bombarded with teaching to the state standards and the ever increasing need to raise test scores. However, it is often important to reflect back to the educational theories of years past that seemed to assist teachers in meeting the needs of the total child. However in today's educational systems, teachers do not even think about learning theories as they are guiding their students along the educational path. Nonetheless, some educational theories are still in place but in a fragmented version although many teachers are not even aware that they are being utilized. The part of constructivism that is used is when the teacher utilizes student's prior knowledge to customize the curriculum as well as hands on problem solving. In the behaviorism theory, teachers use positive and negative reinforcement techniques daily. Additionally, observation learning is utilized as it greatly impacts the curriculum, instruction, and assessments. With regards XXXXX XXXXX theory, Brain based learning theory and cognitivism, most teachers know what the theories are but do not center their teaching around the theories.
