The main aim of education is all-round development of an individual i.e. Physical Development, Mental Development, Social Development, Spiritual Development, Political Development, Economic Development, Technological Development and so on. The home and school are playing a pivotal role in the process of all-round development of a student. A school/an educational institution is a miniature of society. A student can learn at any time and place from/through any person or thing. A systematic learning process helps a student to learn more easily and quickly within a given time. There are various types of learning theories (Behaviourism, Cognitivism, and Constructivism) which really help the individual for systematic learning. Learning is a lifelong process. There is no unique definition for learning. Behaviourism says that learning and behaviour changes are acquired by linking stimuli and response; according to cognitivism learning is internal and is a result of an individual processing and organizing new information; and according to Constructivism, knowledge is constructed by adapting new information based on previous knowledge and experience of an individual. Social constructivism is playing a major role in learning process of an individual in the present digital world. Social constructivism reflects the work of Russian Psychologist Lev Vygotsky, who researched the role of social interaction in learning. Vygotsky believed that learning is driven by external forces including culture, language, and social interaction, and that every mental function has a social component. He is best known for his theory of the Zone of Proximal Development (ZPD). The main aim of the workshop is to show right paths to students and scholars to integrate theory and practice of learning.
