Behaviourism, Cognitivism, Constructivism, Connectivism, Humanism and design based learning

Fig.1. The Contents of my brain

If I include ‘Humanism’ are congnitivism and constructivism subsets?

If I add ‘Design Based Learning’ as a learning theory is it a subset of ‘constructivism’?


Fig. 2. Grabbed from Edudemic – A Simple Guide to Four Complex Learning Theories

Fig.1. draws on Fig.2 from the Edudemic website. It is school situated, so primary and secondary rather than tertiary and beyond into the workplace. Isn’t ‘connectivism’ a process rather than a theory that links everything between the behaviourist, cognitivist and constructivist sets? On balance can we not help be get a ‘blend’ wherever we learn given that we are social beasts with brains.
Can something be simplified too far?
