Key Concepts: Social cognitive learning theorists emphasize the importance of both the influences of other people’s behavior and of a person’s own expectancies on learning, and also... ... These resources often create “ah ha!” experiences when the students learn about points that they did not initially consider. Then learners generate hypotheses in order to better describe and understand relationships between concepts.

It is established on current neuroscience research findings about the physiology/functions of the brain and proposes that people learn better in a challenging, safe, comfortable, social and enriched environment (Caine & Caine, 1991). Computer-assisted instruction was very much drill-and-practice - controlled by the program developer rather than the learner. You could also say that both action learning and action research are intended to improve practice. The stages happen in this sequence, but not to a fixed timetable. 1.

Teachers should be able to vary their approaches when presenting information and contexts for learning, for example, conveying the big picture as well as detailing step-by-step learning where appropriate. The bond formed between a stimulus and response will depend on the existence of an appropriate means of reinforcement at the time of association between stimulus and response. Each button in this frame updates and controls the content of the navigation frame.

The journal covers learning by people of all ages, in all areas of the curriculum, and in informal as well as formal learning contexts. Contributions are particularly welcome if the subject matter can be applied widely and is concerned with encouraging active, independent or cooperative learning. By the 1980s, the rather simple if not simplistic ordinary language analysis practiced most often in philosophy of education was reeling under the attack from the combination of forces sketched above, but the analytic spirit lived on in the form of rigorous work done in other specialist areas of philosophy—work that trickled out and took philosophy of education in rich new directions.

It may at first look like a simple arrangement of words into a hierarchy, but when care is used in organizing the concepts represented by the words, and the propositions or ideas are formed with well-chosen linking words, one begins to see that a good concept map is at once simple, but also elegantly complex with profound meanings. Everyone can change and grow, no matter what has gone before. In his college classes, each semester was split into blocks, and for each block here are the main components of instruction: a qualitative overview to help students understand basic concepts, change misconceptions, and represent problem-situations with words, sketches, diagrams, and graphs; a quantitative overview, covering the same concepts but now including math; during both overviews, for a large number of problem-situations the students make multiple representations — verbal, pictorial, physical (with motion diagrams, force diagrams), mathematical — and translate these in both directions, usually moving from verbal to math (conventional) but sometimes from math to verbal so they can invent a problem that is consistent with the starting equation; stop-and-go lectures with explicit explanations (of ideas-and-skills*) followed by activities (pencil-and-paper, using a set of Active Learning Problem Sheets he made) so students could apply what was explained; * students learn conceptual knowledge (concepts of physics), procedural knowledge (problem-solving strategies), and conditional knowledge (about when to use these strategies); outside class the students also do activities (posing various types and levels of challenge) that include case studies in which they must combine ideas-and-skills from different parts of one block, or from different blocks; throughout both semesters, the logical relationships between ideas are clarified and emphasized, to "help students integrate their knowledge into a comprehensive hierarchical structure built around the basic concepts of physics"; and overall the instruction moves in spirals of increasing sophistication, with students improving their understanding and retention by using their ideas-and-skills "over an extended time interval and in a variety of contexts." welder story, principles + learning strategy (metacog? no?) -- principles plus practice (also how i didn't learn to ski, summary) my "piecework incentive" description for 103/203, define amount of studying by what you learn (as investment to focus on learning) not by time invested discovery that doesn't require invention, if students find information that is explained by someone, but they must actively search for the source In this section, eclectic instruction is a blending of conventional constructivist instruction (minds-on activities and guided inquiry) with explanatory instruction that some educators think is non-constructivist, so they label it “traditional” instruction and contrast it with “constructivist” instruction.

The main difference is that individuals who are instrumentally motivated are influenced more by immediate actions in the environment (e.g. operant conditioning) whereas individuals who are self-concept motivated are influenced more by their constructions of external demands and ideals (e.g., social cognition). Inventory of Learning Styles (Vermunt, 1994) - meaning-directed, application-directed, reproduction-directed, undirected. Another issue that has been brought up with this theory is the idea that maybe there are outside and external reasons that differential association is used and not necessarily criminal behavior that caused the effects the social learning theory claims to have. “Some argue that causal interpretations of this correlation, like those outlined in learning theories, are misleading, since the correlation is possibly due to ‘faulty measurement and the tendency of people to seek the company of others like themselves’” (Brauer, 2012, p. 7).
