To have a general overview of educational inquires, it is worth mentioning that education theory is divided into four subcategories:
- Democratic education
- Comparative education
- Sociology of education
It is an interdisciplinary concept which strands history, sociology and psychology among disciplines to guide, explain or describe educational practices while the theory of education by itself is normative or descriptive.
Now, the issue that arises in these tied conceptual schemes is to postulate a theory that ought to be, or concepts that are verified by observation. Herein, I found a journal named ”Journal of Thoughts” which represent educational viewpoints from the perspective of diverse disciplines (http://www.journalofthought.com/index.php?page=home).
Per our discussion about student engagement in educational systems, we talked about problem-based learning. Other sorts of students’ contribution are project-based learning and performance learning. In these concepts, students construct their knowledge of the subject during the time of engagement along with the desire to participate in.
Each of the mentioned notions in engagement includes educator-instructor as the major components to cultivate conditions that foster these interactions. However, the common characteristic of different schemes is to be student-centered. The focus of the activities is to identify the traits, conceptualize frameworks and develop relationships in a supportive environment.
