I have gained further insight into the philosophies behind education after reading the course material for this second module.
After originally having some of my own mis-conceptions about reconstructionism I have come to the conclusion that it does have relevance to my own teaching practice. However, my day to day teaching philosophy is more pragmatic than any other philosophy. I feel that my teaching reflects pragmatic philosophies through: students-centred learning, activity-based learning and attitude based learning that is to central to the PYP curriculum I am currently teaching.
Please enjoy the modified Prezi that Kerrin Celestine and I have made as a collaborative project.
Comments and suggestions are more than welcome, but please reference individual statements within the document rather than slide numbers (as they are ever-changing).
