Infographic – People of Pedagogy

This infographic looks at some of the leading pedagogues from the past.  Those listed on the graphic are:

  1. Lev Vygotsky is a behaviourist theorist and was behind the popular  carrot-and-stick concept in education.
  2. Jean Piaget is much reputed for his theory of children’s  cognitive development which posits that the cognitive abilities of kids grow gradually passing from one stage to the other.
  3.  Brumer’s insights have tremendously helped the subsequent education theorists in understanding the perceptive abilities of learners and its correlation with the learning motivation.
  4. Bloom is best know for “Bloom’s Taxonomy” which he developed together with other educators to provide teachers with a thinking continuum to help them define how well a skill or competency is learned or mastered.
  5. Gardner’s ground breaking theory of multiple intelligences has shed more light on the different mental dispositions students possess and the relation of these dispositions with learning styles.
  6. Erikson’s theory of psychosocial development serves as the roadmap for a better understanding of the social growth of individuals.

Classic Works: Chickering and Gamson

One of the classic works in undergraduate education is Seven Principles for Good Practice In Undergraduate Education, by Arthur W. Chickering and Zelda F. Gamson. The article begins:
