Maker Education: Pedagogy, Andragogy, Heutagogy

Jackie Gerstein, User Generated Education, Jun 27, 2016
Commentary by Stephen Downes

To be clear, the term 'Andragogy' does not mean (as suggested in this article) "self-directed learning". The term refers specifically to adult learning - "andr (meaning ‘man’) could be contrasted with pedagogy (paid- meaning ‘child’ and agogos (meaning ‘leading’)". And educators do love their levels and series of progressions, hence the movement in this article from pedagogy to andragogy to heutagogy (from 'heut', meaning 'self). All of that said, the PAH framework (educators do love frameworks) could serve as a useful guide for thought in the area.
