Section three presents an appraisal of constructivism as it impacts the teaching of science and mathematics. Section four examines the impact on researchers and final section, a science educator considers how constructivism applies not only to students but to teachersand researchers
Visions of childhood : influential models from Locke to Spock by John F Cleverley( Book )

14 editions published between 1986 and 2001 in English and held by 800 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout history certain theories of childhood have influenced the way we have understood, cared for, and educated our young. These theories form the bases of our attitudes toward children, and underpin our popular child rearing practices. This book unveils the central and often surprising notions that have shaped our conceptions of childhood in the western world. The authors examine those visions of the child that have become the most influential, including the work of Locke, Rousseau, Freud, Piaget, Marx, and Dewey. In probing these ideas, they trace the development of a variety of identifiable models, including the environmentalist, the atomistic, and the deterministic

Postpositivism and educational research by D. C Phillips( Book )

9 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents in a forthright and lively way, an account of the philosophical position generally identified as 'Postpositivistic' that undergirds much of mainstream research in education and the related social sciences. The discussion throughout is informed by recent developments in philosophy of science. This book argues that, while there is much to be learned from recent critiques regarding truth in research, traditional scientific values and assumptions are not outmoded

Philosophy of educational knowledge : an introduction to the foundations of science of education, philosophy of education, and practical pedagogics by Wolfgang Brezinka( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For two reasons, we are particularly proud to include Wolfgang Brezinka's Philosophy of Educational Knowledge in this series of books on Philosophy of Education. Thefirst is the philosophicalinterestoftheworkitself-its remarkablescholarship and the importance ofthe philosophical positionswill beobvious to allreaders. The secondisthat it brings to the English-speaking world a wonderful example ofeducational philosophy as now being practiced in the German-speaking world. All too often philosophers in the Anglo-American tradition have not seen the sort of perspective on educational thinking that infuses this work. And since this book has been widely read in its original version, it has had a considerable impactupon philosophy ofeducational research and science in the German-speaking countries. An understanding of this may help in the development of evenmore cooperativerelations amongstudentsofeducationin all countries. C. 1. B. Macmillan D.C. Phillips PREFACE TO THE ENGLISH EDmON '1 am not unmindful how little can be done ... in a mere treatise on Logic, or howvague and unsatisfactory all precepts of Method must necessarily appear, when not practically exemplified in the establishment of a body of doctrine. Doubtless, the most effectual mode of showing how the sciences ... maybe constructed, would be to construct them". JOHNSTUARTMILL (1843)1 Parents have a duty to educate their children, teachers to educate their pupils. For this reason there is widespread interest in education. Knowledge of education has long beenoffered under names like"pedagogics", "pedagogy"or"educational theory". Originally this meant practical knowledge based on common sense. Since the Enlightenment, however, attempts have been made to acquire scientific knowledge of education
