Multiple Intelligences This program delves into Harvard University professor Howard Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences, describing how people have learning skills that differ in significant ways.
Today, we explore the work of Albert Bandura on social learning theory. Selected Bibliography Driscoll, M. Featured are a sixth-grade teacher and two ninth-grade teachers, with expert commentary from University of Wisconsin professor Gloria Ladson-Billings and University of Arizona professor Luis Moll.
Role of the teacher Constructivist teachers do not take the role of the "sage on the stage. Unsourced material may be challenged and removed. For Vygotsky, culture gives the child the cognitive tools needed for development. Make instructions relatively short, using actions as well as words.
The Structure of the Disciplines This program covers the ways in which the organization of knowledge and understanding can influence learning.
Some of his research led to the belief that every interaction establishes cognitive structure in children. Criteria Marking Feedback Brooks and Brooks state that rather than saying "No" when a student does not give the exact answer being sought, the constructivist teacher attempts to understand the student's current thinking about the topic.
Exploration of questions leads to more questions. With student's repetitive exposure to these particular subjects, some scholars feel that the acquisition of knowledge pertaining to science, language and math is of "secondary importance", and believe that the strengthening and further development of the mind that this curriculum provides holds far greater significance to the progressing learner in the long haul.
Introduction to Learning Theory This program introduces the main themes of the course. In particular, it may bring more informed strategies for teaching students with learning disabilities.
Featured are a fourth-grade teacher, a 10th-grade biology teacher, and a ninth- through 12th-grade teacher, with expert commentary from Lee S. In the constructivist classroom, both teacher and students think of knowledge as a dynamic, ever-changing view of the world we live in and the ability to successfully stretch and explore that view - not as inert factoids to be memorized.
Formal and mental discipline[ edit ] This section does not cite any sources. Within social constructivism particularly there is greater scope for involving students in the entire process: Observation and Education Jean Piaget developed his methods of understanding children by directly observing them while they were working.
Featured are a fifth-grade teacher and an eighth-grade band teacher, with expert commentary from Daniel B. Students use inquiry methods to ask questions, investigate a topic, and use a variety of resources to find solutions and answers.
However, the theory of multiple intelligences is often cited as an example of pseudoscience because it lacks empirical evidence or falsifiability. They illustrate their skepticism by opining that it is foolish to blindly assume that people are better off in life, or at performing certain tasks, because of taking particular, yet unrelated courses.
Theory of multiple intelligences The existence of multiple intelligences is proposed by psychologist Howard Gardnerwho suggests that different kinds of intelligence exists in human beings. Being mindful means to be present with and engaged in whatever you are doing at a specific moment in time.
Creating Classrooms and Schools That Support Learning This program discusses how schools can organize for powerful learning through a coherent, connected approach to teaching and learning that is reinforced and supported by structural features.
The concept of structure introduced four stages of development, according to Teacher Education: When the learner applies their prior knowledge to the advanced topic, the learner can understand the meaning in the advanced topic, and learning can occur Cognitive theories look beyond behavior to consider how human memory works to promote learning, and an understanding of short term memory and long term memory is important to educators influenced by cognitive theory.
Psychology of learning for instruction. Building on What We Know: For example, formal and abstract syntax of math problems can be transformed by placing a traditional math problem within a practical story problem.
When students construct a new meaning, they may not believe it but may give it provisional acceptance or even rejection. How it can be applied to education Advertisement Social modelling is a very powerful method of education. Often that motivation originates from our observation of someone else being rewarded or punished for something they have done or said.iii The Authors Suzanne M.
Wilson is a professor of education and director of the Center for the Scholarship of Teaching at Michigan State University. Teacher interviews and classroom footage illustrate why learning theory is at the core of good classroom instruction and demonstrate the broad spectrum of theoretical knowledge available for use in.
Behaviorism is a worldview that assumes a learner is essentially passive, responding to environmental stimuli. The learner starts off as a clean slate (i.e. tabula rasa) and behavior is shaped through positive reinforcement or negative reinforcement .
