  Older But Wiser?



 



This timeline shows the lifespans of the principle theorists for each learning perspective. While it is not unexpected that the Behaviorists would be older than the Cognitivists, it is interesting to see that the Constructivists, whose perspective is considered more modern, are really contemporaries of the Behaviorists.

In the following pages we will get to know a bit more about these men and sample some lessons inpired by their perspectives
