I want to post here two excellent images that I have come across to explain the various theories and concepts that can be drawn on in relation to learning and pedagogy.
The first is an image that I found via TeachThought (an excellent website – set aside a good hour to go and browse):
The image originally came from a 2008 post by Andrew Churches on edorigami, which also features diagrams explaining thinking skills, assessment and ‘fluency’. You can check that post out here: http://edorigami.edublogs.org/2008/08/16/21st-century-pedagogy/
The second image I am sharing here is this maaassssssive map of Learning Theory produced by the HoTEL project in the EU:
While all of the links made in the maps above are open to challenge and discussion, I really value them as texts! Both maps do a great job of visualising some of the theoretical complexity that sits behind education practice and decision making. I’ll definitely be sharing them with my pre-service teachers next year.

Thanks for the learning theories map Kelli. It would be a good tool for starting discussion and further research. It might work as a trigger for one of your ‘inquire, create, share’ activities too. Thanks! 🙂

How can I get a hold of one of the learning theory map for my team of educstors. WhenI printed it does not come out clear I would like to make it like poster board size for the wall. Can you help me figure out how to get my hands on the appropriate size so that I can reprint it or purchase it at that size?
