Secondly, children increase social and cognitive development from positive influences that are communicated by teachers. Emphasis around Vygotsky’s theory will explain the basis of social interaction facilitating learning with the benefit of good communication (Eggen & Kauchak, 2010). Thirdly, teachers must develop high level of written and verbal communication skills. This will develop good relationships between the teacher, student and family leading to proper educational practices that will improve student’s overall outcomes will enhance their literacy skill. Finally, educators with effective communication skills prove an ability to adapt teaching methods to suit the needs of students they are supporting (Kearns, 2012), and with appropriate delivery of good communication, student learning increases.
Critically discuss one of Piaget’s stages of development and consider the implications of his ideas for practice Piaget believed it was the child’s interactions with their surroundings that created learning and he did not accept that intelligence is a trait that is fixed at birth or that it could be measured using intelligence testing. Piaget was much more interested in how children learn things and how they use what they have learnt rather than measuring how much they know or how intelligent they are. Piaget’s theory of cognitive development is a stage theory consisting of four main stages/periods. These stages are; the sensory motor stage, the pre-operations stage, the concrete operations stage and the formal operations stage. Each of Piaget’s stages has an approximate age range and these age ranges are likely to vary considerably.
Engage CBIs children in self-management, which involve; self-control, self-instruction, self-evaluating, self-monitoring, and self-reinforcement. (Yell et al., 2009) Procedures of CBI In Cognitive Behavioral Intervention programs, children are encouraged to manage their behaviors by using reinforcement to help promote acceptable behavior. Through the CBI procedures children are engaged in observation, keeping records, and reinforcement. In many behavioral management strategies, the teacher controls the procedures of observation, record keeping, and reinforcement. Through the implementation of CBI, the target student, thus promoting self-management, accountability for actions, and independence, completes three procedures.
Discuss the importance of play in children’s learning and development, focussing on the period from birth to six years. TASK 1 ESSAY PLAN Introduction Definition of Play and play types Play theories Infant development Play in a home setting and parent’s influence Adult support in play Play at an Early years Foundation setting Role of practitioners Montessori practice and principles, uniting work and play Influence on physical, social, cognitive and emotional development Conclusion TASK 2 INTRODUCTION Play is a crucial element in children’s learning and development, especially in their formative years from birth to six years of age. Play doesn’t have a set definition as such as it is so complex and there are many different play types and play theories I will cover briefly in this essay. My main aim is to explore and discuss how play affects children from infancy to and through the early years foundation setting. I will focus on how parents influence and support play and the very important role practitioners have once children start nursery.
Lev Vygotsky’s theory was based on social/emotional development needs to show demonstration/imagination to allow a child to progress. His belief was based on the kinaesthetic technique as he believed that when children observe someone that is more advanced than them they learn from them and imitate their actions. Lev Vygotsky“...suggested that this silent inner speech and spoken social speech are connected...” (Meggitt et al, 2012. P.80). It is critical to link his theory to practice as it encourages/allows children to communicate with other children using their social skills which they have developed and allows children to build self-confidence.
There are a lot of similarities in Piaget and Vygotsky’s theories. They both believed that children should be active in their learning and that first hand experiences encourages a child’s national curiosity, they also shared the belief that play was a very important factor to a child’s learning. However Piaget believed that a child’s development is more internal than interactive and that children should learn to work things out for
Four points which describes the child’s behaviour are operant conditioning, classical conditioning, observational learning and trajectories. Operant condition is a method of learning that occurs through rewards and punishments for behaviour. This type of situation, it reflects a positive reinforcement. If the child chooses to follow in his or her parent’s career path, he or she can be praised greatly by the parents’. The child can be rewarded or promises can be made for rewards or possibility of rewards.
If the Smith-Garcias want their child to develop a sharing behavior through the social learning theory they must be a good example for their child. For example they should show how sharing is a good thing. The parents can also have other people that they know come and share things in which the baby can see and learn through the environment that sharing is a good thing. C2. If the parents wanted the child to develop self reliance through Ainsworths attachment theory, they would have to teach the child to not always need their parents.
Children usually grow up and learn social skills by building relationships with peers, teachers, and authoritative figures naturally. Parents may look at this point as advantage to them because it takes out the possibilities of peer pressure, bullying, and bad
This concept focuses on children taking an active role in their learning through social interaction with others and objects. He believed that social learning proceeds development, and that social experiences shape a child’s thinking and helps them to understand the world around them. In this paper, I will attempt to show that by incorporating the social cultural theory of Vygotsky into the curriculum and activities of a kindergarten classroom, children will be provided with a foundation for lifelong learning. My personal philosophy of education is a combination of the developmental theories of Piaget, Vygotsky and my own beliefs, values and philosophy on life. Together, I feel they will
