Educational psychology: an application of critical constructivism
Critical constructivist pedagogy considers social justice and the freedom of students to learn as the most important aspects of the teacher's work in the classroom. Educational Psychology: An Application of Critical Constructivism is a clarion call for pre-service teachers to identify their students' needs and apply critical constructivist pedagogy to facilitate their learning. Collectively, these essays emphasize the need for pre-service teachers to consider their role as fundamental to the development of their students' leadership, and awareness of social justice and equality in education as critical for a healthier and saner world.
