True pedagogy

Learning with e's

Pedagogy is not about directing children. In its absolute form, pedagogy is not just about teaching. In the truest sense, teaching is just one element of pedagogy and not the entire story. Pedagogy focuses on the learner and what they are capable of achieving.

Pedagogy vs. Andragogy: Where Many Get it Wrong In Their Learning Strategy

eLearningMind

Most professionals in the learning space have used the words “pedagogy” and “andragogy” before. Broken down, pedagogy and andragogy essentially translate to “child guide” and “man guide” respectively. One of the most obvious differences between andragogy and pedagogy is the motivation of the learner. It’s a common mistake and one that might seem like no big deal, but mixing up pedagogy and andragogy (and using the wrong one strategically) makes your learning less effective.

Mapping Pedagogies For Performance

Big Dog, Little Dog

Clark Quinn wrote an extremely interesting post, X-based learning: sorting out pedagogies and design , on activity based learning. Wanting to see how these different models would interconnect on a mindmap, I started playing with them.

X-based learning: sorting out pedagogies and design

Clark Quinn

I frankly want an activity-based pedagogy and curriculum to support all of these models. Understanding by design is a design approach that works backwards from goals, and if you set your outcomes on performance, and then align activities to require that performance, you have a good chance of impacting pedagogy, and learning, in meaningful ways. The point is to find an umbrella that holds a suite of appropriate pedagogies and makes it difficult to do inappropriate ones.

Andragogy + Pedagogy

Marcia Conner

It seems the core themes of Adult Learning are in the air right now. This week alone Arthur Ogden's Op-Ed"Learning as a life-long activity" for the Demopolis Times (Demopolis, AL USA) referenced a paper I wrote in 1995 and I've had two requests to reprint the same paper about adult

Andragogy vs. Pedagogy

Big Dog, Little Dog

Pedagogy is derived from the Greek words paid meaning “child&# and agogus meaning “leader of.&# In this pedagogy classroom, the teachers are responsible for all decisions about learning in that they decided what is to be learned, how it is to be learned, when it should be learned, and if it has been learned. They wanted to be able to discuss the growing body of knowledge about adult learners in parallel with pedagogy.
