A Theoretical Frame for Education
To choose theoretical principles
we rely on a triangulation from
three independent research disciplines.
Ecological : observations of normal behavior,
in educational environments,
(mostly carried out by educational researchers)
Psychological : responses to simplified experiments
designed to get at fundamental cognitive structures,
(mostly carried out by psychologists)
Neurological : studies of the structure
and functioning of the brain,
(mostly carried out by neuroscientists)
