Gestalt Theory

The Gestalt Theory believes that learning takes place as a result of patterns and associations.

Theorists believe that it is the building up of parts, as opposed to the Behaviorists who see these parts as segments of a whole.

Theorists trust that learning happens as a result of putting pieces together, as in solving puzzles. They see it as a problem solving method that is the foundation that leads to learning.

Much of the theory that comprises Gestalt learning is a result of understanding the space-time continuum and realizing that learning takes place as a result of sensual stimuli the individual student can comprehend.

The most popular images of Gestalt Theory are the images that can be viewed as one of two things. Whatever the mind perceives, it is difficult to view as something else.
