Taken together, Dewey’s philosophical pragmatism, Lewin’s social psychology, and Piaget’s cognitive-developmental genetic epistemology form a unique perspective on learning and development. (Kolb, 1984). Introduced by David A. Kolb (1939), Kolb’s experiential learning theory is a four-stage cyclical theory of learning from a holistic perspective that combines experience, perception, cognition, and behavior (Kolb, 1984). The Experiential Theory of Learning (ELT) model outlines two related approaches toward gaining experience: Concrete Experience and Abstract Conceptualization, as well as two related approaches toward transforming experience: Reflective Observation and Active Experimentation. According to Kolb’s model, the ideal learning process engages all four of these modes in response to situational demands (Coffield, Moseley, Hall & Ecclestone ,2004).
The basic concepts of the social learning theory include observations and the assumption that individuals learn by watching other individual’s behaviors and actions. Observational learning explains that individuals watch and mimic behaviors he or she has seen. Albert Bandura explained three models of observational learning, including a live model, a verbal instruction model, and a symbolic model (Bandura, 1977). A live model illustrated the individual performing a particular behavior. A verbal instruction model included expressing a
Multimodal: Learners might prefer a particular mode or a dominant mode; multiple modes are frequently used in learning situations. The VARK test lists four scores, which compare the way a person applies the VARK learning modalities in their learning
(2012) discuss the importance of addressing the social skills and academic content in the classroom through the social learning theory, observational learning theory and the guided learning theory. They suggest that the Social Learning Theory, conceptualized by Albert Bandura argues that learning both behavioural and cognitive occurs through imitation, demonstration, and observation. The major characteristics of social learning theory include centrality of observational learning, self-efficacy and agency, and cognitive contributions. Modeling and learning takes place through live modeling, verbal instruction, and symbolic modeling. The process involves four major steps: attention, retention, reproduction, and motivation.
Jean Piaget focused his research on studying children and observing their thought processes. With the use of observations, dialogues and small-scale experiments, Piaget argued that to achieve reason and logic children experienced stages of ‘intellectual development’ (Smith, Cowie & Blades, 2003, p.514). According to Passer, M., Smith, R., Holt, N., Bremner, A., Sutherland, E., & Vliek, M. (2009) the four stages of cognitive growth that Piaget founded were the sensorimotor stage (from birth to two years of age), the pre-operational stage (ages 2 to 7), the concrete operational stage (ages 7 to 12) and finally the formal operational stage (ages 12 onwards). In the first stage infants “understand the world through sensory and motor experiences” and learn of object permanence. Object permanence is
This document is to review and outline some of the roles, responsibilities and boundaries in my experience as a tutor, trainer and practitioner, within teaching in terms of the training cycle. The teaching cycle helps us to organise what is going to be taught in the lesson and how is going to be taught and it is divided into five main categories; identify needs, plan and design, deliver/facilitate, assess, evaluate. In 1987 Neil Fleming individualised different approaches to study skills and suggested VAK as a definition which categorise three types of learners and therefore three types of learning styles; the Visual learner which prefers to learn through seeing, the Aural learner which prefers listening and discussing and the Kinaesthetic learner which prefers a more to-do approach. We plan the lesson at the planning stage, considering the different types of learners and need that we will be encountering and therefore preparing
Interactions between elements happen differently with individuals (Pashler, McDaniel, Rohrer, & Bjork, 2009). Determinations regarding each individual’s concentration, maintenance, and response to processing styles toward retention and long- term memories can be studied. These types of interactions and studies into learning permits for identification of preferences, strengths, and modes of learning specific to an individual that effect psychological, environmental, social, physiological, and emotional factors (Pashler, McDaniel, Rohrer, & Bjork, 2009). The purpose of this paper aids in evaluating and describing verbal learning, comparing, and contrasting paired associate, serial, and free recall learning, and exploring concepts of mnemonics within recalling verbal stimuli. Concept of Verbal Learning, Curve of Forgetting and Three Verbal Learning Methods Herman Ebbinghaus is associated with concepts of verbal learning regarding his work with memory.
The view of learning as restructuring and replacing old beliefs implies that transition involves unlearning as much as it does learning. A further hypothesis suggests that instruction may need to recapitulate transitions in the history of science to help learners transit from their own naive theories. Conceptual recapitulation refers to a means of remediating learning problems by retracing instructionally what should have been naturally occurring developmental stages for an individual (Case, Sandieson, & Dennis, 1986). But it might fit the historical recapitulation hypothesis as well. There also seem to be qualitative shifts in the mental models needed by learners to understand more complex systems, for example, in such domains as electricity (Frederiksen & White, in press).
<BR>There are many different theories of education, all of which have some merit. After studying many theories, both in class, and through personal study I have chosen four which I believe are the most applicable in todayâ€™s society. I will discuss Thorndikeâ€™s Connectionism Learning Theory, Rumelhart & Normanâ€™s Tri Modal Learning Theory, Banduraâ€™s Social Learning Theory and finally Laveâ€™s Situated Learning Theory. The two primary theories involve structured instruction, the final two rely upon the exposure of different elements of the environment and human nature. I will then compare the theories, highlighting their variances, whilst also focussing upon their application to life.
