Conclusion

In this Unit, you have evaluated and compared the theories of two major figures of twentieth century educational psychology.

You have explored their ideas in the light of your own classroom experiences and you have considered some of the main criticisms levelled against each theorist.

If, in the course of this analysis, you have had any thoughts or ideas which lead you to wish to revise your draft personal learning theory, please do so now.

In the next Unit, you will be introduced to another psychologist who comes from the cognitive family of learning theory. He is the social constructivist, Lev Vygotsky.
