Philosophical and Sociological Perspectives of Education

Towards learning curriculum for courses on education
Confidence towards learning about Technological Perspectives of Education




The module, Philosophical and Sociological Perspectives of Education, encapsulates the initiation towards Inclusive Education, Educational Sociology and Sociology of Education, social stratification, multicultural education, privatisation, pragmatic philosophy and socialization, as a process to create a social self, learning one's culture and learning the rules and expectations of the culture.

The teachers who motivate, differentiate, make content relevant and leave no student behind are more important than any other factor in particular. For students like the subject only when they like the teacher and is hence a directly proportional element within a classroom. The drive by the teacher in the class, with the vocabulary is signified with the equilibrium of learning together rather than teaching. The say, “Teachers know the best”, activates wisdom just in the say but in action. The sole reason for this far-fetched approach lies in the nutshell element of an easy approach of open knowledge which is free, versatile and dual with surprises. The satisfaction and the wow element within classrooms only prevails where there is a taste of “It is in the book, Ma’am, tell us something new!” As a teacher, it is our wisdom to inculcate the “I can do approach” instead of “I shall try approach” and that is universally possible only when we use kind words in the class. Compliment each kid, specially the difficult ones. That might be the only positive thing they hear all day.

The module is manipulated towards students revision for the courses related to degree/ diploma in education.
