EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Guided Cognition for Learning: Unsupervised Learning and the Design of Effective Homework details a new instructional design approach called Guided Cognition where homework tasks are designed to guide learners to engage in specific, observable cognitive events that are hypothesized to elicit underlying theoretical cognitive processes that result in learning. Outlining the results of twenty-six experiments completed over the course of eight years, the book tells a significant story about the generality of Guided Cognition instructional design to improve comprehension and recall by students of varying ages and ability levels. Explains why unsupervised learning is a major part of education Reviews the history of homework in American education Shows that quality of homework is more important than quantity Illustrates how Guided Cognition-designed homework improves learning for literature and mathematics Compares Guided Cognition to other types of instructional design Analyzes how the surface structure of Guided Cognition tasks relate to underlying psychological processes Discusses the effects of the internet on learning Presents applications that facilitate lifelong learning Includes an appendix of frames and guidelines for authoring Guided Cognition questions and tasks

Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Recent studies in neuroscience, along with research in cognitive psychology and classic theories in adult education, put training professionals in the position to craft powerful learning experiences. “Memory and Cognition in Learning” reviews the current body of knowledge to explain how the brain responds to factors such as stress and emotion, and the role of both learner and trainer in the learning experience. This Infoline will: • outline key principles from cognitive learning theory • provide tips on facilitating an effective learning environment • summarize some challenges to corporate learning • offer guidance on how to better design brain-friendly learning. The Infoline also provides job aids on how to put the brain at the center of a webinar, how to make your training modules more enjoyable for the learner, and how to organize information so that it is easier for learners to remember.

Cognition  Education  And Communication Technology

Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Cognition, Education, and Communication Technology presents some of the recent theoretical developments in the cognitive and educational sciences and implications for the use of information and communication technology (ICT) in the organization of school and university education. Internationally renowned researchers present theoretical perspectives with proposals for and evaluations of educational practices. Each chapter discusses different aspects of the use of ICT in education, including: *the role of perceptual processes in learning; *external cognition as support for interactive learning; *the role of meta-cognition; *simulation learning environments as cognitive tools; *the role of science controversy for knowledge integration; *the use of ICT in the development of educators; and *the role of narratives in education. ICT has great potential for revolutionizing education. Large investments of resources are being made, often without a strong understanding of how ICT will or should be implemented. The expectation is that students will show immediate improvements in terms of their motivation to learn and their learning achievements, but reality is different. Progress of ICT in education requires more than just computers in the classroom. It demands an understanding of the complex processes contributing to human learning and how they interact with new technologies. This text provides theoretical perspectives on the learning processes that can be used as a foundation for constructing pedagogically valuable tools based on ICT. The combination of results--from cognitive science and pedagogy, with more practically oriented suggestions for how ICT can be used in various forms of education--makes this book suitable for researchers and students in the cognitive and educational sciences, as well as for practitioners and planners of education.

Release Date: 2012-12-06
Pages: 342
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This book aims to mark fifteen years of contributions to the field of style research in cognition and learning presented at the annual conference of the European Learning Styles Information Network. The style field is a multidisciplinary, global community made up of researchers in several domains of knowledge including education, psychology, business, computer science, information systems, management, human resources and other related fields. The book will be relevant for readers who are interested in differences in thinking and learning, covering a wide range of style-related themes with appeal to readers seeking an international and interdisciplinary perspective. Interested practitioners will include professionals working in the areas of HR Management, Organizational Learning, Business Management and all phases of Education. The application of style differences, for example, impacts widely upon work and human performance in areas of policy-making, team-management and project development (sports, social agency, and medicine). New or alternative research paradigms facilitating revision and consensus in the field of style differences are presented. The aim of integrating research and practice is developed to achieve consensual theory for style differences in human performance. Style Differences in Performance is a timely and field-defining volume that will change the way academics and practitioners across international and disciplinary boundaries think and talk about the field of learning style and its implications for human achievement.

Schools For Thought
Author: John T. Bruer
Publisher: MIT Press
Release Date: 1994
Pages: 324
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Schools for Thought provides a straightforward, general introduction to cognitive research and illustrates its importance for educational change. If we want to improve educational opportunities and outcomes for all children, we must start applying what we know about mental functioning--how children think, learn, and remember in our schools. We must apply cognitive science in the classroom. Schools for Thought provides a straightforward, general introduction to cognitive research and illustrates its importance for educational change. Using classroom examples, Bruer shows how applying cognitive research can dramatically improve students' transitions from lower-level rote skills to advanced proficiency in reading, writing, mathematics, and science. Cognitive research, he points out, is also beginning to suggest how we might better motivate students, design more effective tools for assessing them, and improve the training of teachers. He concludes with a chapter on how effective school reform demands that we expand our understanding of teaching and learning and that we think about education in new ways. Debates and discussions about the reform of American education suffer from a lack of appreciation of the complexity of learning and from a lack of understanding about the knowledge base that is available for the improvement of educational practice. Politicians, business leaders, and even many school superintendents, principals, and teachers think that educational problems can be solved by changing school management structures or by creating a market in educational services. Bruer argues that improvement depends instead on changing student-teacher interactions. It is these changes, guided by cognitive research, that will create more effective classroom environments.
