Disneyland as A Learners’ View (ALV) of Learning



This Preface discusses how Disneyland offers one of the most elaborate and entertaining lessons in the uses of a learners’ view of learning.

When you look through the entertainment, you can see patterns of how Disneyland demonstrates ways that teachers use the same patterns while instructing lessons that learners learn.

It’s a fun professional development session for educators as well as parents in how to organize lessons.

How to organize the sights, sounds, smells, etc. with the subject matter you want someone else to learn to use to solve a problem.

The two productions share the use of principles of social action described by a learners’ view of learning during lessons of teachers.

Development of this Disney production occurred before and independent from publication of descriptions of a learners’ view of learning.
