Helping Your Child Cope with School Transitions by Leah Davies, M.Ed.

Helping Your Child Cope with School Transitions by Leah Davies, M.Ed. | Learning and Human Development Theories | Scoop.it

Children report moving, leaving friends, and changing grades or schools as being highly stressful. To assist them with transitions the following ideas may be helpful:

If the family is moving, take pictures of friends and familiar places and offer ways to keep in contact with close friends via phone, email, and letters. Help your child talk about what he or she will miss and about what will be new and different.
Vicki Butler's insight:

This post was on LinkedIn's Educational Leadership sight.  School transition, any transition, can be difficult. There are some great ideas that would facilitate those transition times. At the end of the post are some links to items you might find helpful

The Key to Empowering Educators? True Collaboration

The Key to Empowering Educators? True Collaboration | Learning and Human Development Theories | Scoop.it
For Connected Educators Month, a key theme this year is how to move from merely connecting with other educators into collaborations that push pedagogy and the education conversation forward. A panel of educators who’ve made this kind of connection and collaboration the center of their work discussed the challenges posed by the current American education system and helped present a dream for what truly collaborative learning could look like.

How to Apply Design Thinking in Class, Step By Step ^ Mind/Shift ^ by Anne Stevens | Learning and Human Development Theories | Scoop.it
For educators ready to try the idea of design thinking, you’ll be glad to know it does not require extensive transformation of your classroom. That said, it can be a transformative experience for all involved. Here, we try to answer your questions about integrating different components of a design learning experience into familiar, pre-existing scenarios that play out in every school.

For my students: How does design thinking incorporate the growth and development themes put forth in class? How about learning theories?

Teachers tap into brain science to boost learning

Teachers tap into brain science to boost learning | Learning and Human Development Theories | Scoop.it
Research on the brain and how we think and act is influencing the way some teachers teach. Special correspondent John Tulenko of Learning Matters goes into a classroom where the instructor uses different methods to engage different parts of the students’ brains, then checks with a neuroscientist about whether that strategy actually works.

leading and learning: Transforming education: Stop teaching and begin learning with your students | Learning and Human Development Theories | Scoop.it
It seems counter-intuitive but students are failing because teachers are teaching too well.Teachers spend hours and hours of their time preparing lessons for their students but all too often the only person learning anything are the teachers themselves. Even the most attentive and compliant of students do not get what the teachers intend – and worse still researchers have shown that that such teaching does not change students’ minds – and changing minds is the definition of learning.

When the Myth is the Message: Neuromyths and Education | Learning and Human Development Theories | Scoop.it

Neuroeducation, a growing field bridging the gap between neuroscience and education, has been instrumental to bringing tested brain science research into the classroom—and offering data that has provided educators with new tools to develop novel classroom techniques (as well as challenge outdated pedagogical doctrine). But what happens when neuroscience findings are taken too far?

This review from the respected Dana Alliance covers the usual neuromyths including the 10% myth and the left brain/right brain foolishness.

It also includes two myths that I have not read a lot about. Read the article for more information on the idea that sugary snacks cause hyperactivity and that the adolescent brain cannot control impulses well. Worth a read.

Legendary Harvard Psychologist Jerome Bruner on the Art of “Effective Surprise” and the 6 Essential Conditions of Creativity

Legendary Harvard Psychologist Jerome Bruner on the Art of “Effective Surprise” and the 6 Essential Conditions of Creativity | Learning and Human Development Theories | Scoop.it

One of the greatest preoccupations not only of our culture but of our civilization is the question of what creativity is, dating back to the dawn of recorded thought. But it wasn’t until the advent of modern psychology in the early twentieth century that our answers to the question began to take the shape of something more structured and systematic than metaphysical hunches.

 

One of the most compelling in the past century comes from the influential Harvard psychologist Jerome Bruner, celebrated for his contributions to cognitive psychology and learning theory in education. In 1962, Bruner published On Knowing: Essays for the Left Hand  - a wonderfully dimensional exploration of “the act of knowing in itself and how it is shaped and in turn gives form to language, science, literature, and art.

Social Cognitive Theory

Social Cognitive Theory | Learning and Human Development Theories | Scoop.it

History and Orientation

In 1941 Miller and Dollard proposed the theory of social learning. In 1963 Bandura and Walters broadened the social learning theory with the principles of observational learning and vicarious reinforcement. Bandura provided his concept of self-efficacy in 1977, while he refuted the traditional learning theory for understanding learning.

The Social Cognitive Theory is relevant to health communication. First, the theory deals with cognitive, emotional aspects and aspects of behavior for understanding behavioral change. Second, the concepts of the SCT provide ways for new behavioral research in health education. Finally, ideas for other theoretical areas such as psychology are welcome to provide new insights and understanding.

Core Assumptions and Statements

The social cognitive theory explains how people acquire and maintain certain behavioral patterns, while also providing the basis for intervention strategies (Bandura, 1997). Evaluating behavioral change depends on the factors environment, people and behavior. SCT provides a framework for designing, implementing and evaluating programs.

Environment refers to the factors that can affect a person’s behavior. There are social and physical environments. Social environment include family members, friends and colleagues. Physical environment is the size of a room, the ambient temperature or the availability of certain foods. Environment and situation provide the framework for understanding behavior (Parraga, 1990). The situation refers to the cognitive or mental representations of the environment that may affect a person’s behavior. The situation is a person’s perception of the lace, time, physical features and activity (Glanz et al, 2002).

Cognitive theory is about the emotional part of behavioral change. Environmental changes influence this theory. These environments include anything that influences people.  These environments model for the people. The model above show how all these relate to each other.

Teaching is about giving instruction that can help with the learning process this can lead a learning outcome.

There are nine events that support this according to Gayne.

Gain attention - capture

Inform learners of object

Stimulate recall materal

Provide learning guidance - scaffold

Elicit peformance - tests essays

Provide feedback - feed forward

Assess performance

Enhance retention & transfer - make it real to form connections

What do you think Gayne means about Assess performance?
