Summary

"Holosagogy" is proposed as a new, complete system of learning and teaching that applies to teachers and learners of all ages, cultures, and disciplines in all educational settings. The first section of the paper discusses facts about the human brain and explains why educators must understand and respect how the brain works to perceive, process, store, and retrieve information so they will not inhibit learning with brain antagonistic teaching, administration, and organizational practices. The second section examines human modalities, learning styles, and intelligences, explaining that all students learn in different ways and have intelligences and strengths in different areas. The third section discusses the component of community, an important cornerstone for the holosagistic paradigm. Meaningfulness can only be measured in the context of the individual's learning community. Educators cannot expect earlier systems of teaching to respond adequately to a culturally diverse, information-based society and its educational needs. Holosagogy can celebrate and accommodate great diversity and developmental learning patterns, both biological and environmental, of all individuals. (Contains 23 references). (SM)
