These ideas were expressed in his “Tabula Rasa Theory of Human Behavior”. In his writing, Locke says,”Let us then suppose the mind to be, as we say, white paper, void of all characters, without any ideas—How comes it to be furnished? Whence comes it by that vast store which the busy and boundless fancy of man has painted on it with an almost endless variety? Whence has it all the materials of reason and knowledge? To this I answer, in one word, from experience.” According to this quote, Locke explains that people are born with empty minds, but individual learning and experiences will help to shape life.
As long as their suffering can be minimized “where possible”, they can be used and then disposed of in scientific projects of “merit”. The Code uses a lot of words, such as “necessary”, “essential” and “justified”, but is short on criteria for how these critical terms should be interpreted. The Role of an AEC: The primary responsibility of AECs is to ensure that all care and use of animals is conducted in compliance with the Code. AECs apply a set of principles that govern the ethical conduct of people whose work involves the use of animals for scientific purposes. The role of the AEC is to ensure that the use of animals is justified, provides for the welfare of those animals and incorporates the principles of Replacement, Reduction and Refinement (the 3Rs).
Critical thinking is relevant in a few different aspects of life. For example, critical thinking can be applied to school and learning. There are people who support using different aspects of critical thinking in students curriculum. Laura Hummell said, "Critical thinking skill development is crucial in elementary schools. Students who are allowed to explore, empathize, question, hypothesize, conceptualize, experiment, and evaluate throughout their own learning become productive community members" (Hummell 5).
This characteristic provides the opportunity for children to develop and customise their own pathway, choosing to work individually or with others. This embodies the culture of student-directed learning, where each child experience of learning is driven primarily by them. Secondly, is community-based. Building learning environments where co-planning and co-teaching is adhered, builds on this principle of community. Inviting parents to join in and support their child’s learning, offers this strong connection….
1.1 Describe how a learning support practitioner may contribute to the planning, delivery and review of learning activities. The learning support practitioner may contribute to the short-term planning of learning activities of the class. Since the support practitioners get to spend more time with a child, or a group of children who need extra help, they would give inputs about how to adapt the lesson to meet the needs of everyone. The support practitioners may also get involved in the delivery of learning activities by working with a child, or a group of children who need an additional support. It is a good idea to discuss with the teacher about the learning outcomes, and the ways to carry out an activity beforehand.
Pedagogical documentation is an ongoing process for educators to facilitate, grow and improve the children’s development. It is including a few steps of collecting data, analyses data, reflect on how children’s learning takes place, plan to enhance their learning and take into account of the relevant learning theory. Pedagogical document is a tool to explore children’s everyday experiences and make it visible about the nature of the learning process to other child, teacher and adult (Fleet et.al, 2011). The practitioner believes that the philosophy play is an important tool to facilitate children’s development. Play offers opportunities for children to participate in a group to learn different social skills such as sharing, turn taking, negotiating
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.
My role as a Teaching assistants is to support teachers and help children with their educational and social development in and out of the the classroom.

The Head Start and Reggio Emilia approaches have respect for teacher, children, families, and community through school and home. They have the children become active learning with parent as partner, observe, learner, and support from their children’s learning. They engage families in planning activities and learning experiences in their home for their children that work in innovative,
School and teachers can influence the extent and quality of learning for all students. Teacher’s beliefs, practices and attitudes are important for understanding and improving educational processes. They are closely linked to teachers’ strategies for coping with challenges in their daily professional life. Educators have control over numerous factors that influence motivation, achievement and behaviour of students. They are turning around their approach into a focus on creating positive school climate and responsive classroom as part of holistic quality education based on child rights where there is effective teaching and classroom management, thus enhancing students’ learning experiences.
