Big Life Picture and Education

Integrating student education with the big picture of their life will support students’ ways of thinking about education, personal lives, career and work settings. Removing the disjointed approach to education will help prepare young adults for effective citizenship in today’s’ complex culture (P. M. King, Baxter,M., 1996).

“When learning and personal development are integrated, the cognitive and affective dimensions are seen as one process, and the hallmark of a successful educational experience is when increased cognitive understanding is complimented by increased sense of self, personal maturity and interpersonal effectiveness” (P. M. King, Baxter,M., 1996)
