Critical Reflection on James Paul Gee

  • Luke Panaccio

Abstract

I decided to focus on this text ahead of the others because it was a good chance to write about some of the ideas in Gee’s book in a reflective manner, instead of using a theory to justify the kind of work I am producing. In the first part of this reflection, I will take two of Gee’s 36 Learning Principles and explain why I think they are important.
