Philosophy of Education - Philosophy of Education It seems that everyone has a different opinion of what education should be and why it is important. In this paper, I will address the philosophy I most agree with: progressivism. I will briefly explain what it’s about and why I agree with it. Then I will give you a brief look at my viewpoints on teaching and education in general. First of all, I feel that it is obviously in a student’s nature to want to be around others and be social in all that they do. Aside from that, I believe that students also want to gain knowledge and are naturally curious about subject matters both in and out of the school setting....   [tags: Philosophy of Teaching Statement] 1542 words

Philosophy of Education - Philosophy of Education I believe the key to a happy and successful life is having the choice to do what you really want, whether it’s being a sail boat captain, a scientist, or a tax collector. The only way to have these choices in life is through education. The more information you have and the clearer you can think, the more power you have over your future.

Progressivism: The Philosophy of Education That Best Suits Me as Teacher - Before beginning any paper on a philosophy of education, it is important to define the terms used so that both the author and the reader are “on the same page.” Webster’s New World Dictionary, in the third definition, defines philosophy as “the general principles or laws of a field of knowledge” (p. 1015). Education is likewise defined in the first definition as “the process of training and developing the knowledge, skill, mind, character, etc., esp. by formal schooling” (p. 432). Hence, a philosophy of education would be elaboration and discussion of the general principles of training and developing the knowledge, skill, mind and character of a person or people....   [tags: Educational philosophy, teaching]

The Philosophy of Education - ... It is a teachers duty to help students reach their full potential. I want to inspire people. I want someone to look at me and say “Because of you, I didn’t give up.”” Everybody is a different color in a crayon box so teaching differently is the way to get students involved. The students are the future of tomorrow so all of them need to learn in the way they understand and can grasp the information. Everybody learns differently so a teacher should do all things possible to work with students as well as planning suitable activities to get students to be liberated thinkers, be engaged and enthusiastic to continue to learn....   [tags: teaching, environment, methods] 542 words

My Philosophy of Education - My Philosophy of Education Education today is very different than that of twenty years ago. I think that today’s educators have more interest in test scores and the outcome of standardized testing, than the level of content that a child is learning and the successfulness of the teaching and learning process. I want to meet both of the aspects. I want my students to have high test scores and do well for our school, yet at the same time have fun learning. I want to make a child excited about learning and thrilled about coming to school to learn....   [tags: Philosophy of Teaching Educational Learning Essay] 970 words

Rethinking the Philosophy of Education - Rethinking the Philosophy of Education ABSTRACT: Philosophy is a special way of signifying the world. If philosophy is the place where the question is radical, then the task of the philosophy of education is to turn education into a problem through the practice of criticism. With this in mind we ask, Is teaching possible. What can really be transmitted. If man, as psychoanalysis indicates, is constituted as a desirous being, learning is possible only if desire is present. This interweaving of philosophy and psychoanalysis leads us to consider the impossibility of education in terms of three questions....   [tags: Teaching Education Research]

My Philosophy of Education - I believe that when students are comfortable, whether it be with a teacher or just a setting, they will learn much more quickly. Therefore, I think that it is extremely important to create an environment that is safe and comfortable for the students. Because of the “laid back” atmosphere, I think that my model for discipline would fall under the umbrella of constructivism. The reason is that I believe that students need to be able to learn in a way that relates to their lives in the present day....   [tags: Constructivism]

My Philosophy of Education - When asked how one would define education many may say it is learning subjects such as Mathematics and English, being tested to see what one has absorbed and that the subsequent marks indicate the level of one’s success. Until recently, due to my experiences in education, I too agreed with this as well as believing that I was of a certain ability level. Only now, through having being introduced to various learning theories, experiences and influences during teacher training have I started to develop a different philosophy of education....   [tags: teaching, teacher] 1612 words

My Philosophy of Education - Introduction The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.-William A. Ward My philosophy of education is that learning requires retention of knowledge and the ability to transfer the knowledge for a meaningful purpose. Retention of knowledge requires that data being introduced by teacher conveys a value through direct meaning or through associative value by blending with previously obtained knowledge (Mayer, 2002). The most difficult job a teacher faces is determining these motivators in order to make the material desirable and obtainable....   [tags: teacher reflections, student motivation] 2006 words

My Personal Philosophy of Education - My Personal Philosophy of Education Without education, society as we know it would cease to exist. Formal education is what has made our country and other industrialized nations great. Thus, as a future educator, I anticipate the opportunity to assist in the molding of future generations by imparting essential knowledge. The famous philosopher and educator, John Dewey, once said, "Education is the process of living through a continuous reconstruction of experience. It is the development of all those capacities in the individual which will enable him to control his environment and fulfill his possibilities." Identifying with Dewey's pragmatist philosophy, I believe that children are...   [tags: Teaching Education Essays] 693 words

However, each student manifests this ability at a different level and pace. Thus, it is the role of the teacher to facilitate learning by providing each student with the opportunity to grasp mathematical concepts. Too often teachers assume that only those who have demonstrated a high level of achievement in the classroom will be able to experience higher-order problem solving situations. Often, problems that require critical thinking are simplified to mere procedures and rules....   [tags: Education Teachers Reflective Writing Essays] 641 words
