The students of today will be the leaders of tomorrow, which is why it is so important that they develop the critical thinking necessary for arriving at multiple answers/solutions for the complex problems, challenges, or situations that are facing our ever-changing world. As it will be seen later, this application leads us to consider what this field specializes at Philosophy of teaching thus specializes on ontological, epistemological, axiological, and logical assumptions related to teaching in its all descriptions to be elaborated in latter lectures.
From our discussion we have built three premises that lead to the conclusion that Philosophy should be offered in schools. Probably in section one you learnt that when a preposition ‘of’ is added to the term philosophy, a phrase becomes Philosophy of”. It emphasizes teachers to teach principles example principles of education rather than facts about education.
Before the start of each year, or when changing classrooms, set aside time to reflect on your philosophy statement. Writing a teaching philosophy statement may take some time, but most instructors will find the process easy once they pause and think about what drew them to this field in the first place.
Develops competencies in leadership roles within formal and/or informal educational institutions, agencies, or communities. Though often seen as a wholly abstract field, philosophy is not without practical applications. But we see that sociological tendency in education developed out of scientific tendency.
This is to say that there are applied philosophies such as political philosophy, Philosophy of law, philosophy of economics, philosophy of religion and the like. These five schools of thought do not exhaust the list of possible educational philosophies however they do present strong frameworks for one to constantly redefine their own educational philosophy.
