In philosophy, ontology is the study of being. In other words, it asks the question, "What is?" It looks at what exists in the world and how those things exist. When applied to education, ontology looks at the nature of educational experience and tries to answer questions such as What is learning? What is knowledge? Ontology also attempts to address what reality is for humans and their experiences with the world. By examining these fundamental questions, a more complete understanding of the nature of education can be gained.
