Framework of the Study Cognitive Theory Cognitive theory is the dominant theory in instructional design and many of the instructional strategies advocated and utilized by behaviorists are also used by cognitivists. When designing from a behaviorist-cognitivist position, the designer will study the situation and sets a goal. Learning objectives are developed and individual tasks are broken down. In this approach, the designer selects what is significant for the learner to know and recognize, and tries to transfer that knowledge to the learner. Cognitivists consider learners develop learning through receiving, storing, and retrieving information.
The behaviour we observed is models. In social life, children encompassed with effective people like parents, siblings, friends, tv characters and teachers etc. They attract to certain people and encode the behaviour and later imitate the behaviour interest to them regardless whether it is appropriate or inappropriate for them. MEDITATIONAL PROCESS: it is referred as a bridge between traditional learning theory and cognitive approach. Bandura believes that individuals are effective "informative processors" and always anticipate the connection between their behaviour and its outcome and such factor involved in the learning process to evaluate if the new response is accomplished.
Education is centered on themes and concepts and the connections between them, rather than isolated information. Constructivism is first of all a theory of learning based on the idea that knowledge is constructed by the knower based on mental activity. Learners are considered to be active organisms seeking meaning. Constructivism is founded on the premise that, by reflecting on our experiences, we construct our own understanding of the world consciously we live in. Each of us generates our own "rules" and "mental models," which we use to make sense of our experiences.
Self-regulated Learning: A Compatible Concept Husain Abdulhay University of Kashan, Iran firstname.lastname@example.org Abstract: Issue of self versus other is also diligently stressed and applied in education so as to put person at the helm of situation, not a pawn at the mercy of circumstances. In the same vein, this study aims to draw attention to a newly developed concept of learning which overemphasizes the role of individual learner in attunement of his thought, emotions and strategies to accelerate and escalate the extent of his acquisition. To do so, an overview of this new phenomenon known as self-regulated learning is given at first and evidence attesting to the fruitfulness and utility of such strategy is dispensed in the following.
Other theories which underpins authentic assessment is Experiential Learning Theory by David Kolb and Situated Learning Theory which was theorized by Lave and Wenger. Experiential learning occurs by making sense of direct everyday experiences. Concrete experiences provide the information that serves as a basis for reflection. On the other hand, Situated Learning Theory is learning in the same contexts in which concepts and theories are applied. Research has shown that real-life applied activities and problem-solving activities establish a contextual setting for many lessons, providing motivation and encouraging curiosity.
Another limitation, as critics have emphasized is that social learning does not explain how motivation or personality changes over time. While most psychology textbooks place Bandura’s theory with those of the behaviorists, Bandura himself has noted that he ‘...never really fit the behavioral orthodoxy.’ Even in his earliest work, Bandura argued that reducing behavior to a stimulus-response cycle was too simplistic. While his work used behavioral terminology such as 'conditioning ' and 'reinforcement, ' Bandura explained, ‘...I conceptualized these phenomena as operating through cognitive
3 Examples in practice Exploring various systems of the learner. Conscious effort to learn in depth about their culture, roots, and lifestyle; how it affects their knowledge and way of learning. Explore balance of school, work Social interactions with more knowledgeable other (MKO). A struggling student was partnered with a more confident and knowledgeable student. Self-reflection-analysis and evaluation.
Kolb’s theory of learning styles states that knowledge is created through transformation of experiences. Technology-aided instruction has helped to develop customised learning tools to maximize the benefit. O’Conner (1998) states that it is necessary to examine learning
The learning frame of reference draws from the work of educational and developmental psychologists, teachers and behaviorists (Turner, 2002). It is founded on the assumption that adaptation and change are based on the ability to learn, and that behaviors are learned through acquisition of knowledge, experience and practice. The main focus in the learning frame of reference is for the person to learn coping skills. Useful approaches within this frame of reference for the case of Sarah would be educative approach and cognitive approach. Educative approach aims to provide the knowledge that clients and carers need in order to allow them to identify a range of options for problem-solving and to make the most appropriate choices of intervention.
Course advisory systems assist the teachers to discharge their duty by knowing the students strengths and other capabilities. Employability can be enhanced if the requirements from the industry are incorporated into the education system. This paper provides a detailed review on various Learning Analytics tools, applications and the techniques used to design and develop Learning Analytic
