Introduction Learning theories are the core guidance on planning the educational system. With the knowledge of the general principles,educators can manipulate their knowledge more efficiently to meet with diversity in learning circumstances. Theory by general definition is a the establishment and an explanation of the way brain acquiring knowledge. It is a sequence of a hypothesis that corresponding to each other which should be able to outline, clarify, predict or have control of the scenario. Learning theories defined as a description of learning and the approach towards the way a person obtain, assemble and use their skills and knowledge.
Introduction: This assignment critically reflects on everyday practice of social work in conjunction with the theories associated with the practise. I chose this course for two important reasons. 1. My aim of undertaking the assessing role is to help me learn and to widen my interest in social work. By enhancing my learning, I will be able to assess and assist the student to gain eclectic knowledge base and the skills required to undertake an assessment with a holistic approach.
The community has symbols that creates meaning, also contributing to their identification, because of those symbols a social worker get to be able to work with clients. STRENGTH The relationship between meaning of symbols and a person’s behavior, this theory provides a bond between how an individual behaves is related to the meaning of objects and events. Provides the ability to understand small scale human interaction, it enables the understanding of family interaction. Recognizes that beliefs and opinions of reality are changeable, the belief people have on something can actually change and become part of reality. Considers the social environment in which learning takes place.
Those entering the work world use it to choose careers likely to match their interests and strengths; those seeking a change use it to target new career directions. Educators and students use it to make learning more interesting and compatible with individual learning and teaching styles. People in relationships of all kinds use it to better understand one another, improve communication,and reduce conflict, resulting in more positive and productive interactions. Isabel Briggs Myers created descriptions of the 16 personality types, including the description presented for you in this report. Your type description will help you see your type’s distinctive characteristics and how your type differs from others.
Heutagogy “Heutagogy is the study of self-determined learning … It is also an attempt to challenge some ideas about teaching and learning that still prevail in teacher centred learning and the need for, as Bill Ford (1997) eloquently puts it ‘knowledge sharing’ rather than ‘knowledge hoarding’. In this respect heutagogy looks to the future in which knowing how to learn will be a fundamental skill given the pace of innovation and the changing structure of communities and workplaces.” In self-determined learning, it is important that learners acquire both competencies and capabilities (Stephenson, 1994 as cited in McAuliffe et al., 2008, p. 3; Hase & Kenyon, 2000, 2007). Competency can be understood as proven ability in acquiring knowledge
It focuses on the teacher’s ideas; classroom practices to make teaching more refine and acquire a rich experience by amending the drawbacks. The paper further explores the underlying principles of a reflective teacher and endeavouring best
Facilitators can help provide a supportive environment to assist in the process. The facilitator has a role to play in pre and post experience. Learners need to be prepared if they have to make most of their experience. According to Boud and Walker (1999:29) a facilitator can assist learners by introducing them to the context, and help them develop skills and strategies prior to the event. Merriam et al (2007:169) describes the various roles of the facilitator during reflection on action to include (i) encouraging learners to reflect and discuss openly ion the experience, (ii) bringing to light underlying assumptions for reflection, (iii) assessor of learner’s prior experiential learning.
Boeree (2006) and Cobb (2007) posit that through observing others, one forms an idea of how new behaviours are performed and later this coded information serves as a guide for action. The premise of Bandura’s learning theory are observational learning and modelling which constitutes four element processes including: attention whereby the learner pay attention to the modelled behaviour; retention whereby the learner or observer must be able to retain part or all of what was done; motivation/reinforcement whereby the observer must have the motivation or desire to carry the action modelled behaviour; and motor reproduction whereby the observer must have motor skills and hence be able to reproduce
Assessment for Learning Align assessment with the constructive, student-centred learning models. For instance, self and peer assessment. Formative assessments must connect the teacher–student communication in learning and providing instruction. There is a requirement of timely and understandable feedback in order to better lead the students in future learning. (Carless 2005).
Curriculum models provide a structure for teachers to “systematically and transparently map out the rationale for the use of particular teaching, learning and assessment approaches” in the classroom, and are regarded as an effective and essential framework for successful teachers (O’Neill 2015, p27). Feeding into a particular curricular stance, it is essential to recognise the multiplicity of sources which will govern this individual framework. Oronstein and Hunkins observe that, when designing a curricular stance, educators must first consider the “philosophical and learning theories” which will inform their “design decisions” (2009, p182). This approach is essential to ensure that the curricular approaches one selects are “consonant with
