6 Education Theorists That All Teachers Should Know
Thinking back to my time as a graduate student working on my masters in elementary education, I remember all of the educational theories and theorists that we learned about. From Lev Vygotsky to Jean Piaget, these education pioneers blazed a path that education thought leaders like myself still walk down today. Their theories helped me fully master the teaching an learning process, and provide my students with the best possible educational experiences.
So who are the education theorists that all teachers should know about? I am glad you asked. The graphic below lists the 6 education theorists that all teachers should know about. I will be the first to admit that this list needs to be revised, and should include individuals like Paulo Freire, James Comer, etc. I am sure the “The Classroom Key” had good intentions when they created this graphic, but they missed the mark. With that being, said, it still can serve as a starting point for educators.
