example of a working memory different types of memory (long term, short term and echoic memory). How do you improve working memory? The above questions are what should have been included to have a better overall better understanding of the term working memory 1. the learning difficulties faced by the children comes about because they are unable to meet the memory demands of many structured learning activities ( Gathercole & Alloway, 2008) as a consequence their memory becomes overloaded . 2. when the working memory overloads, what happens is the child will be unable to proceed with the activity, will try to guess at this point but mostly likely lead to errors or to simply give up on the task before
Teachers’ beliefs about mathematics, mathematics learning and mathematics instruction can also impact on teachers’ instructional practices (Beswick, 2007; Leder, Pehkonen, & Törner, 2002; Wilkins, 2008), although the contextual nature of beliefs means that it is unwise to expect consistent links between beliefs and practice. While teachers’ beliefs have been described by Pajares (1992, p. 307) as “a messy construct”, their influence on instruction is sufficiently accepted to warrant further
For instance, word problems sometimes sound like a complete foreign language and you have to dissect how to solve the problem. However, not all students will have the same knowledge and it may be the first time they come across a word that now has a new or several new meanings. The language of math is very important and it should be included
(Hameed et al, 2008). The learning resources should matter the most towards the lecturers as the challenge for some of the lecturers, particularly in developing countries, because changing their practice of teaching in ways that accommodate the use of technology. It is time consuming as the lecturers need to get familiar with new technology compared to the traditional approach they used to apply. In e-learning, technology is simply a tool that educators may use in a number of ways within the new environment that can impact student learning
Challenges of Implementing Intranet While there appears to be many advantages of implementing intranet-based training, there are also significant challenges. Inexperience in a web-based learning environment is a challenge for the student, the instructor, and the designer. Proper course design is still essential for the training to be successful. The people needed to create and maintain such a system may also be more than the organization originally thought. The biggest challenge is that it is so new that the companies that are doing don't know what to ask for.
When teaching in the 21st century, teaching students to use technology for writing is an essential skill unless teachers want them to fail in this ever-advancing society. While students are being taught how to use technology for writing, they also need to be taught the proper skills in writing to be able to produce grammatically correct writings when technology is not present. Teaching writing using technology has both negatives and positives but when together, students have effective tools for using technology to the fullest as well having the proper skills for writing without
CHAPTER ONE 1.0 Introduction 1.1 Background of the Problem Competence Based Curriculum of students learning is an important component of any education system. The overall aim of CBC is to enhance attainment of educational objectives through meaningful learning. There is a global mistrust of paper and pencil based examination. This kind of assessment is however, criticised for its detrimental effects on students’ learning. Adams (1996) point out that paper and pencil particularly tests and examinations focus on irrelevant concepts that do not impact directly on students’ lives; they encourage superficial, rote learning and negligence of higher order thinking skills such as reasoning, problem solving and independent inquiry.
computers and internet. Technology has become so important for one to survive in this world. The rampant use of technology by students is very evident. It is a believed that studenst constant use of technology hinders their ability to persevere and face challenges in problem solving. But technology is more than using the computers and the internet.
In this theory learning take place when new knowledge obtained or previous knowledge is modified. Environment, feedback, social interaction and some other factors are used to assist in the implement the learning process. Cognitive learning theory plays important role when we use education technology in learning theories. In the learning process through technology not only had potential to create different and unique learning environment but also effectual learning environment that promote learning the
The results showed that there is a discrepancy between the students’ awareness of the instructors’ goals for using new technologies and the importance instructors placed on computer assisted language learning (CALL). The data also indicated a disparity between the students’ use of CALL and instructors’ perceptions of how students use CALL and also the types of technologies that instructors thought were useful for students’ success and ones that students perceived were useful for their own
