Educational Leadership


As a population we know more today than ever before, with everyone having a wealth of knowledge and skills to offer others (Draves, 1984). This especially holds true for students entering college. Students in post secondary education bring with them different types of knowledge. The first type of knowledge students bring to the classroom includes stored information containing learning principles and even games that students use in order that learning can take place. The second type of knowledge deals with learning specific content information, and the third type of knowledge involves information that the student has acquired in dealing with the learning assignment at hand (Johnson, 1983).
