The Greeks were the first people in Europe to develop civilization; but it was from the Minoans, Egyptians and the Phoenician traders that the Greeks learned how to write, to use metals, to trade, and to build and sail ships. 1. 2. There are two contrasting types of education in Greece: Spartan Education Athenian Education

It is controlled by the state and exercised the right to expose sickly babies on the mountainside to die A seven boys and girls were gathered in the barracks for physical training

Memorizing the laws of Lycurgus the Spartan lawgiver and the epics of Homer, Iliad and the Odyssey At 18, definite training in the use of arms and warfare began

At 20-30, service in the army and guarding the borders of the state were required Physical training for the girls were also rigorous to bear healthy children at 20 Agoge state training

Arete a virtue or excellence, moral goodness, one which makes a thing a hero, the best, the most effective of its kind. Paidonomus a barracks commander

The Spartan education system ensured that the citizens were reared in such a way that they neither would , nor could live by themselves one with the public good. This involved a long process of conditioning, beginning at birth where deemed much less the children of their parents than the wards of the state.

The first state in the worlds history where human capacities were allowed to develop freely They believed that the greatest work of art was the human form Man should be molded in the ideals of the arte or chivalrous honor School attendance was voluntary At seven, boys can be sent to the palaestra for physical training

Introduced Holistic education the development of perfect citizens, knowing both how to rule and to be ruled on the basis of justice (Plato & Aristotle) They approached their problem in a scientific way, by examining principles governing human life , asking what a man was, body, mind and spirit. Education is the making of man, not training men to make things (technicism). Teaching someone the skills of using a computer or a mobile phone is not education, it is not a true culture of the whole person. To Plato and Aristotle, useful, no doubt necessary, but not education. Palaestrae public gymnasiums Didaskaleon music school

Paidogogus once a slave but very learned and was in-charge with teaching the boys with the intricacies of manner and morals Heterae cultured women who participated in social life and intellectual discussions of the upper class males Kitharist music teacher Grammalist grammar teacher Paedotribe gymnastics teacher

Ephebus a young man at 18, enters military training and join the Ephebi. Two categories of curriculum: 1. 2. Mousike- includes music, language and literature gymnastike- physical training and athletics needed in war and competitions.

The aim of Roman education was utilitarian, not theory but application, not learning but practice. It emphasized a practical training for the military life and citizenship acquired through memorization of the Laws of the Twelve Tables and the historical traditions of Rome. It is concerned with the development of a vir bonus, a man endowed with the highest virtues, a good citizen.

Agencies Public and private schools (Elementary, secondary and Colleges) Contributions: Ladder system of education Free and absolute education for all

A psychological movement advocating a child-centered point of view which aimed to unfold the natural capacities of the child which can be enhanced or retarded by the methods used in the school. Noted Developmentalists: 1. JOHANN HEINRICH PESTALOZZI He believed that

pedagogical reform would lead to social reform. Learning come through the senses. 2. FREIDRICK FROEBEL- known for his kindergarten.

Children should not be thought why they dont understand. 3. JONATHAN HERBART- known for his highly structured methodology of teaching (Herbartian Method) 4. MARIA MONTESSORI- known internationally because of her Casa de Bambini which offered early childhood education. Three major activities: practical, sensory and muscular, and formal. 5. JOHN DEWEY-known for his philosophy of pragmatism. He viewed education as a process of social activity and the school was related to the society which it served. 6. JEAN PIAGET-known for his contribution to early childhood education in the field of cognitive development.

7. EDWARD L. THORNDIKE- a scientific educator known for his laws of learning such as: the law of readiness, law of exercise and the law of effect.

This leading movement in education is attributed to John Dewey. The focus is on the contribution of education to the preservation and progress of the society; what he called as the social function of education. Two points of View: 1.Social Traditionalism Aim: To give pupils insight into their traditions to arouse sympathy toward social service 2. Social Experimentalism Aim: To foster social change specially in the field of science and technology to meet the needs of the changing society.

Ethical belief or scientific approach where in which people of different nations are held to be equal as opposed to national chauvinism and racism. It encourages an active partnership between teachers and students moving from awareness and analysis of issues to action. Styles of internationalism 1. 2. 3. Unilateral internationalism Bilateral internationalism Multilateral internationalism

A. NATURALISM Considered to be the oldest philosophy in the Western world. The early Greek thinkers were naturalists. Some of them were Thales, Democritus, Epicurus and Lucritus. The contemporary naturalists are: 1. THOMAS HOBBES

According to him, the native condition of man is a war of everyone against everyone. He is continually in competition with others, grasping for honor and dignity. Man should be kept busy from which he must struggle for something better, because he is troublesome if he is not at ease. His hunger for power is unquenchable and only ceases at death. 2. JEAN JACQUES ROUSSEAU

He views that everything is good as it comes from the hands of nature but everything degenerates in the hands of man.

He established three (3) great principles of learning: 1) The principle of growth the order of nature is need, activity, experience and knowledge. The teachers role is not to impel learning but merely to guide it in such a way that it follows the natural order. 2) The principle of student activity- Nothing must be done for the student that he can do for himself. 3) The principle of individualization The needs and interests of the student must be placed above those of the society. 3. HERBERT SPENCER He believed in an Absolute Being, the foundation of all phenomena which man can observe. It is conceivable yet unknowable. It is the continuing force or power in the world of nature. Defined education as complete living. B. REALISM

The philosophical doctrine that universals have a real objective existence. It is based on what is real as they are; something that exists independently of all other things and from which all others are derived. Some realist thinkers: a. ST. THOMAS AQUINAS-According to him, matter

which is the material substance out of which the world was made, did not co-exist with God before the creation of the universe. b. JOHN AMOS COMENIUS The mind of man is like a spherical, mirror suspended in a room which reflects images of all things that are around it. Father of Modern Education. c. d. God. RENE DESCARTES- Believes that the physical world is real and his senses are not deceived. BARUCH SPINOZA- Believes that there is only one substance and this is his being identical with

e. JOHN LOCKE- Believes that there are no innate ideas in the mind. At birth, it is just similar to a blank sheet of paper (tabula rasa) upon which the world writes its impressions. f. IMMANUEL KANT-Our sensory experience and perceptions are representations of the external world and not direct representations of it. Our experience of the world is private. C. IDEALISM

Reality is composed of thought related to mind and idea, and that matter is just an appearance. Reality is spirit. Act of knowing takes place in the mind. Contemporary Idealist: GEORGE BERKELEY

Considered as the founder of modern idealism. Believes that the fundamental element of the world is not matter but spirit or mind. D. PRAGMATISM OR EXPERIMENTALISM

A philosophical movement stressing practical consequences as constituting the essential criterion in determining meaning, truth or values. This was primarily an American philosophical movement formulated by CHARLES SANDERS PEIRCE. WILLIAM JAMES For him, the test of a theory, doctrine or belief must be its results. The only reason that we have for asserting that anything is true is whether it works. E. INSTRUMENTALISM According to JOHN DEWEY, what constitutes our brute or animalistic experience is the interaction between a biological organism and its environment. Experience is not an object known, but rather, an action performed. He proposed that the educational system should try to develop methods for problem solving. If the student learned how to solve problems, presumably he would be better fit for living in our ever-changing world with its manifold perplexities. For him knowledge is not an end but an instrument an individual can utilize to attain his desired goal. It emphasizes the importance of experience, experimentation, and learning by doing which brought tremendous influence on the learner. F. EXISTENTIALISM A modern movement encompassing the doctrine that individual existence determines essence, that man has no absolute freedom of choice but there are no rational criteria serving as a basis for choice. Two prominent exponents of existentialism: 1. SOREN KIERKEGAARD-For him, man is a subjective thinker and comprehends himself not as an abstraction but as an ethically engaged existing subject. An authentic choice is fundamentally a product of passion and zealous intention. 2. FRIEDRICH NIETZSHE-He sees that the nature of man makes him vulnerable to deficiencies which have to be corrected to produce a superior race. He said that traditional morality is the reason of an inferior race of man. Nature is beyond good and evil; all men are unequal; morality is an invention of the weak to limit and deter the strong; that power is the supreme virtue and the supreme desire of man; and that of all forms of government, the wisest and most natural is aristocracy.

1. JEAN PAUL SARTRE- According to him, in anxiety, man becomes aware of his freedom, knows himself and is responsible for his own actions and commitment. He believes that there is no creator of man. Man determines his essence. Man first is, then he defines himself. 2. KARL JASPERS- For him existence is always in a situation. It is mans reactions to inescapable situations (death, suffering, guilt, struggles) that our potential existence becomes actual.

3. MARTIN HEIDEGGER- Man is a being-in-a- world by participation and involvement. His world is a world which he shares with others. Human existence itself is essentially togetherness. There are three (3) fundamental features of man. They are factuality (He is already involved in the world); Existentiality (He is a project and a possibility); and fallenness or forfeiture ( He has the tendency to become a mere presence in the world; failing to make the most of his possibilities because of gossip, curiosity and ambiguity)

It views truth as constant or perennial. The aim of education according to perennialist thinking is to ensure that students acquire knowledge of these unchanging principles or great ideas. It also believes that the natural world and human nature have remained basically unchanged over the centuries, thus the great ideas continue to have the most potential for solving the problems of any era. 1. Education must promote humankinds continuing search for truth. Whatever is true will always and everywhere be true. Truth is universal and timeless. 2. Since the minds work is intellectual and focuses on ideas, education must also focus on ideas. The cultivation of human rationality is the essential function of education. 3. Education should stimulate students to think thoughtfully about significant ideas.

Two of the best known advocates of this philosophical orientation were: a. ROBERT MAYNARD HUTCHINS.

Education must be based on the study of the Great Books which contain enduring classics from Plato to Einstein. b. MORTIMER ADLER.

In his Paidea Proposal, he stressed the significance of the study of humanities and literature. He also reiterate the idea The best education for the best is the best education for all.

It says that education begins with the child rather than with the subject-matter discipline. It contends that knowledge that is true in the present may not be true in the future and the best way to prepare students for an unknown future is to equip them with problem-solving strategies that will enable them to cope with new challenges in life and to discover what truths are relevant to the present. The Deweyian assumptions of progressivism : 1. The content of the curriculum ought to be derived from students interests rather than from the academic discipline. 2. Effective teaching takes into account the whole child, his or her interests and needs in regard to cognitive, affective and psychomotor areas.

3. Learning is essentially active rather than passive; effective teachers provide students with experiences that enable them to learn by doing. 4. The aim of education is to teach students to think rationally so that they may become intelligent, contributing members of society. 5. At school, students learn personal, as well as social values.

6. Humankind is in a constant state of change, and education makes possible a future that is better than the past.

It is a conservative philosophy of education that was originally formulated as a response to progressive trends in school. William C. Bagley was its recognized founder. This philosophy holds that our culture has a core of common knowledge that the schools are obligated to transmit to students in a systematic, disciplined way. It stresses not on truth but on which advocates believe to be the essential knowledge and skills that productive members of our society need to know. According to this philosophy, schooling should be practical and provide children with sound instruction that prepares them to live life; schools should not try to influence or set social policies. One of the trends in essentialism is the back-tobasics movement. Training the students to communicate clearly and logically and focus on the core skills of reading, writing and speaking is central to this orientation. There are certain essentials that all men need to know such as essential skills : the 3 Rs and essential subjects: English, History, Math, Science and Foreign Language. Individuals should be able to distinguish between the essentials and non-essentials in ones existence.

accident. According to behaviorists, it is an illusion to say that humans have a free will. While we may act as if we are free, our behavior is really determined by forces in the environment that shape our behavior. We are what we are and we do what we do, not because of any mysterious power of human volition, but because outside over which we look any semblance of control have us caught in an inflexible web. Whatever else we may be, we are not the captains of our fate or the masters of our souls.

John B. Watson was the foremost originator of this behavioristic psychology and Burrhus Frederic Skinner, its best known promoter. They maintain that, in the school, the teacher needs merely recognize that all learning is conditioning and must adhere to these steps: 1. Identify desired behaviors in concrete (observable and measurable) terms.

2. 3.

Establish a procedure for recording specific behaviors and counting their frequencies. For each behavior, identify an appropriate reinforce.

4. Ensure that students receive the reinforce as soon as possible after displaying a desired behavior.

It holds that schools should take the lead in reconstructing the current social order. Theodore Brameld, the acknowledged founder of reconstructionism bases his philosophy on two fundamental premises about the present: 1. We live in a period of great crisis, most evident in the fact that humans now have the capability of destroying civilization overnight, and 2. Humankind also has the intellectual, technological, and moral potential to create a world civilization of abundance, health, and humane capacity. In this time of great need, the schools should become the primary agent for planning and directing social change. The educative process should be based upon a continuous quest for a better society. The logical outcome of this quest would be the eventual realization of a worldwide democracy. Unless we actively seek to create this kind of world through the intelligent application of present knowledge, we run the risk that the destructive forces of the world will determine the conditions under which humans will live in the future.

METAPHYSICS- Studies the nature of reality and being EPISTEMOLOGY-Inquires about the nature, presuppositions, and scope of knowledge LOGIC- Studies correct thinking or rules of inference to arguments ETHICS- Inquires into morally right conduct and morally good life AESTHETICS- Analyzes standards and values in art and aesthetic experience AXIOLOGY- Studies the nature, status and types of values

It provides a means of systematic inquiry by which teachers can examine their values, knowledge, and actions and subsequently make decisions that lead to the accomplishment of classroom, school and societal goals.

Metaphysics-the branch of philosophy that seeks to explain the nature of being or reality (ontology) and the origin and structure of the world (cosmology). Epistemology-is the study of the origin, nature, methods, and limits of knowledge. Axiology-From metaphysical and epistemological questions emanate knowledge of standards and moral conduct (ethics) and concern about issues related to beauty and art ( aesthetics).


The Early Period (5th Century - 4th Century B.C.) Philosophers and their philosophy: Plato Ideas are perfect paradigms and

universal. b. Aristotle- Explained organisms in terms of their

contributions to society or to the ideal state. This is known as teleological explanation. c. Socrates- Knowledge is virtue and all virtuous actions are based on knowledge.

Key Concepts Perennialism - refers to the belief that truth is universal and unchanging and therefore education should have as its goal the preservation and transmission of lasting values and ideas. In practice, it is concerned with the development of the intellectual and spiritual potential of humankind. Essentialism- derives its name from the belief that the task of education is to instill students with the essentials of academic knowledge and character development.

1. Mortimer Adler-(1902-2001) Known for his proposal for an educational system that would fulfill the democratic promise of equal educational opportunities for all. (The Paideia Proposal) 2. Arthur Bestor-(1908-1994) For him, genuine education is intellectual education, and this is the only education that has worth. He stressed that the function of education is to provide sound training in the fundamental ways of thinking. 3. E.D. Hirsch, Jr.-(1928- ) He is best known for his bookCultural Literacy: What Every American Needs to Know and another one entitled, The Schools We Need. He advocated that being culturally literate means understanding the necessary information (shared symbols) to communicate in the national community.

4. Robert M. Hutchins- He averred that education should be based on the classical disciplines of grammar, rhetoric, logic, mathematics, natural science, philosophy and ideas from the Modern World. He said that we should not allow students to think that the purpose of education is simply to get better jobs. 5. Theodore Sizer-He stressed the concept of less is more when applied to the curricular scope of schools. It means more is to be gained by committing the school and its resources to the task of cultivating the intellect through academic disciplines.

1. 2.

Belief in the need for a common course of study. A minimum of 12 years of study in the fundamental discipline

3. Development of the habit of self-discipline, thoughtfulness leading to ethical behavior, and the recognition of the need for lifelong learning. 4. Highly structured schools with universal standards for all, performance objectives and evaluation methods that are clear to all. 5. A recognition that a common course of studies for all students is necessary to fulfill the promise of citizenship in a democracy. 6. Toughening of standards for entrance to and completion of the teacher education program in order to prepare highly qualified teachers who possess the knowledge and skills to teach-and inspire students.

Developmentalism-refers to the belief that teaching based on the developmental stages of the child is the most effective teaching practice. It is also called developmentally appropriate practice and constructivism. The Advocates of this philosophy were:

1. Jean Jacques Rousseau 2.Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi 3.Friedrich Froebel WHAT THIS MEANS FOR SCHOOLS? Children are diverse in their abilities, and new information should be introduced only when the child is ready for it. A prepared environment is conducive to learning. Play is an integral factor in learning and uninterrupted time should be allotted to it. Curriculum and instruction should match the childs needs and interests. Schools provide society with an opportunity to better the world and the human condition.

The Advent of Rationalism and Empiricism Empiricism- stresses the search for knowledge through use of the five senses and through observation and experimentation. (Bacon and Locke) Rationalism emphasizes the importance of reason as secondary to sensory experience, feelings, or authority.

The ideal Filipino learner in our rapidly changing world is one who is empowered for lifelong learning, is an active maker of meaning, and can learn whatever s/he needs to know in any context. The empowered learner is a self-developed person who is Makabayan (patriotic Makatao (mindful of humanity Makakalikasan (respectful of nature) Maka-Diyos (godly)


A trustworthy facilitator or manager of the learning process ( not the authoritarian instructor) One who enables learner to become active constructors of knowledge One who knows his/her particular discipline One who is ready for collaborative teaching
