The mode of psychological teaching combined with daily life emphasizes the connection of psychological teaching with learners’ daily life and teachers’ instructing learners or students to apply the knowledge of psychology in the process of analyzing the phenomena of psychology in daily life and to learn psychology based on their daily life experiences. It is supported by the relevant psychological research and includes the following basic steps. Firstly, the teacher can collect typical phenomena of psychology from daily life based on the analysis of the teaching goal. Secondly, the teacher can request learners to raise their questions about the phenomena and arouse their interest or motives to explore the phenomena. Thirdly, the teacher can instruct learners to answer the question based on their explorations. Finally, the teacher can direct learners to integrate the extant knowledge with the newly obtained knowledge. In the process the Internet plays an indispensable role. The Internet can be used as the convenient tool of information searching and personalized interactions between learners and between learners and instructors, and it can also be adopted to support online learning and to arouse the learner’s interest in learning psychology.
