This chapter looks some of the theoretical views about the learning process. The authors examine recent curriculum reforms in Hong Kong and identify what kinds of learning are promoted in these reforms. They then move on to discuss questions of the contexts in which learning takes place, including: (1) What is learning? (2) How does learning occur? (3) What should be learnt? and (4) Who should make decisions about learning?

Keywords:   socialization, experiential knowledge, procedural knowledge, declarative knowledge, behavioural models, constructivist models, information processing models, humanistic models, Confucian models, metacognition, self-regulation
