This paper discusses how schools will have to offer well-rounded education to successfully prepare the next generations of students to meet a wide variety of experiences and face many different challenges. The paper then looks at studies that recognize that children learn differently and the teacher-lecture approach does not provide the best education for everyone. In addition, the paper explores the philosophy of constructivism that places the emphasis on the learner rather than the teacher and refers to the ideas of Piaget, Roger and Bruner. Furthermore, the paper explains the common learning styles and environmental factors that should be considered when attempting to create the best learning conditions and reviews Gardner's list of intelligences and his approach to a curriculum.
