It’s not All about Cognitive-Affective Learning merits consideration too

Affective learning projects put their focus on using current knowledge to help inform new information, says Walter Smith in his post, “Affective Learning and Prior Knowledge“.

 Evaluation of affective learning offers a real alternative to conventional evaluation because it evaluates the entire learning picture, not just the outcomes of learning. Its focus on integrating past learning makes it ideal for returning, lifelong learners. ~Walter Smith

What is substantially important for me is that students see an emphasis on context and connection. A balanced curriculum approach would include, must include, the treatment of the Affective Domain first proposed by D.R. Krathwhol. Long a fixture link on my OOPS website, Krathwohl’s Affective Domain values information Receiving, Responding, Valuing, Organizing, and Internalization.
