“Dr. Kilpatrick sets forth some of the principles underlying creative or progressive education. He develops the idea that the child’s learning must be related to real life situations. Methods by which this dynamic learning can be fostered are illustrated in actual classroom scenes.”
Encyclopedia Britannica, (1931)

This film clip shows Professor Kilpatrick demonstrate in a classroom what he thinks "To Learn" means. He speaks about academic learning as well as what he refers to as "home learning". Kilpatrick believes that the child is an active participant - that learning is active and dynamic.
