consider whether learning has changed over time
Examine some key characteristics of learning
Begin to understand ways in which learning is theorised
Learn about ourselves as learners
articulate the process of learning something new
identify our individual learning preferences. Learning is.... Personal Effective learning....? Introduction to learning What is learning? What is learning? The learning process Teaching is based on a set of intuitive and omnipresent theories or 'folk beliefs' about learners' minds.
Bruner (1996). Academic Behavourism
Physiological Learning and brain laterisation Differentiated learning styles...? Personal yet also social,
Natural and lifelong,
Active and interactive
Transformational. Learning is? The act, process or experience of gaining a knowledge or skill
A CHANGE in behaviour as a result of experience or practice
Knowing what to do when you don't know what to do (Claxton, 1999). Activity: How to get to my house.....
In groups of three, allocate the roles of TEACHER, LEARNER and an OBSERVER.
The teacher is to teach the learner how to get to the teacher's house,
The teacher should only finish when the learner is confident they know exactly how to get there.
The observer is to look VERY CAREFULLY at what is going on/
If you finish early, reverse the roles. Different perspectives:
Being left or right brained can explain children's academic strengths (McCarthy & McCarthy, 2005)
Most skills involve the co-ordination of messages from both sides of the brain (Bruer, 1999).
The differences in the structure of male and female brains mean that they learn differently (Gurian & Henley, 2001). PLASTICITY: the ability to form synapses and the basis for learning capability. Left/right brain dominance
Sensory modalities (visual, auditory, kinesthetic)
Attitudes and learning dispositions Learning is:
Intellectual, social and emotional,
It is linear and erratic,
It happens by design and by chance
we all do it and take it for granted,
Learning takes time.....
Stoll, Fink & Earl (2004) West-Burnham (undated) The future of learning? According to Burnham (undated):
Recognition of the social impact on learning
An emphasis on personal/social and emotional intelligence and moral principles
A review of assessment understandings
A changing role of the teacher
A focus on the use of ICT within the learning process. Nature versus nurture?
