Chapters 2 & 3 are partial translations (1984) of Chapters II & III from Sonnekus, M. C. H. & G. V. Ferreira, Die psigiese lewe van die kind-in-opvoeding. University Publishers & Booksellers, Stellenbosch, 1979.
In Chapter 1, it is argued that the three models of learning considered (signal or respondent, operant and information processing) are NOT of central relevance to one interested in how children learn, generally, and how they learn in an educational situation, specifically, mainly because none have the learning child as their point of departure. Chapters 2 & 3 present an alternative view that is based on a learning child-in-education, as such, rather than applying one or another theory of learning.
