According to Prof. Dykeman, here are the questions you will need to answer as part of your assignment:
Below, I'll explain which resources can help you answer each of these questions.
These resources should help you find information about the influences and history behind your learning theory / theorist, as well as key points about the theory. Since theories or philosophies were likely informed by observation, the history of the theory may shed some light on how it was evident in "past iterations of school."
The first two sources are (online) multi-volume encyclopedias, and they're somewhat dated. If you have a newer theory / theorist (ex. Bransford), you might want to skip to the last two links.
You might also want to see if we have any books that talk about your theory / theorist. I understand you probably don't have time to read an entire book for this assignment, but you might find a chapter or two that is useful!
For the last few questions, you may want to search some of the library's databases to see if articles have been written about your theory / theorist, and how they relate to technology and engineering.

In addition to your theory / theorist, you might try searching for these topics:
