Classic Education: A Learners’ View (ALV) of Choices During Teaching and Learning is a guide to the richly textured behavior and social patterns people use to learn. It also includes ways people use these descriptions to accelerate, increase, and deepen (AID) learning promptly and dramatically. These descriptions are companions to discussions by others of classic, 21st century, and other ways of emphasizing particular aspects of learning.

No truly global order, description, or definition of learning exists. What passes for order in our time are philosophies referred to variously as schools of thought and practice such as behaviorism, cognitivism, constructivism, Deweyism, Freudianism, or Rogerianism. The ultimate challenge in this century is to build a shared view of learning in a world of divergent historical views and practices, ideological boundaries, and proliferating communication technology to collect data and disseminate what the most informed people know about teaching and learning.

Classic Education is built with a conviction that the keystone to uniting these views is a language of learning that emerges from what is common across experimental research results that describe learning. This site starts with and gives priority to descriptions of what is common across more than a century of empirical research findings of what people do to learn. These results describe a learners’ view (ALV) of learning. From this view, learning occurs in one step one person at a time. The rest is trial-and-error in search of a pattern that solves a problem. These results form an infrastructure of learning as do roads permit vehicle transportation.

Steps that learners take result from choices they make moment by moment in and out of schools from options they see, hear, and in other ways sense.

Behavioral and social scientists have described micro and chains of choices people make while learning as well as how these choices affect learners’ life chances. These chains form a triple helix with instruction used and content learned. Chains of choices also form levels as in a stack of pancakes.

Classic Education includes descriptions through links to video demonstrations, webinars, PowerPoint Slides, and graphic arts; essay length articles; lecture notes; short quick reference entries; suggested readings; glossary; and worksheets.

They breath life into the topic of how people learn and how observers can monitor and manage learning, including in the 21st Century.

No evidence exists that people have learned or are learning in ways other than as these scientists have been describing increasingly more precisely for more than a century.
