Let's talk theory for a while

It is important  in your rationale for your lesson plan and unit plan that you refer to learning theories. I know you have done a lot on learning theories during your studies but I thought it was worth reminding you about the importance of referencing them when you are designing the learning for students

A site too check out about learning theories is at

In the Australian Curriculum you will see many learning theories in action via the inquiry model used in HaSS


The philosophy about learning, that proposes learners need to build their own understanding of new ideas, has been labelled constructivism.

Some other learning theories to refer to in HaSS:

·        Multiple Intelligences

·        Systems thinking

·        Experiential learning
