AECT 2017 Convention Page
Socratic Seminar is an international forum composed of leading teachers, researchers, and educational philosophers who provide analysis and critiques on philosophy of education and all aspects of educational technology including cultural, social, economic, and political impacts of media design for instruction. Describing philosophies of education and various teaching and learning methods, a panel of international professors and a graduate student will enter into what is known as Socrates method of discovery learning and teaching -- called “dialectic.” The strength of the method transpires the fact that mentors must not make statements, but provide guidance that encourages critical thinking, leading to true knowledge.
