There are six levels of intellectual behaviour important in learning within the cognitive domain; 1. Knowledge is a starting point that includes both the acquisition of information and the ability to recall information when needed. 2. Comprehension is the basic level of understanding. It involves the ability to know what is being communicated in order to make use of the information.
Pedagogy, which refers to the method of teaching according to learning styles, has greatly evolved overtime. In 1907, Dr. Maria Montessori began using materials to enhance the learning styles of her students. Montessori developed a method of education where self –directed learning is encouraged and the students are focus on projects that are interesting to them. In 1956, Benjamin Bloom developed a system known as Bloom’s Taxonomy, which is still used today. The Bloom’s Taxonomy Theory is a system of categories of learning behavior to assist in the design and assessment of educational learning.
The Natural Human Learning Process is a process that the brain goes through when learning different skills. According to Dr. Smilkstein’s this process is divided into six steps. The first step is the motivation stage. This step is when the brain begins to gain the desire to do something for many different reasons. Sometimes, she says, we learn things because we feel as though “we have too”.
Bloom’s Taxonomy is the higher order of thinking. Imagine a pyramid; to get to the top, you must first finish what is on the bottom. Bloom’s Taxonomy is divided into 6 different sections, each one specifying what skills are being demonstrated. The first and easiest block is knowledge. In knowledge you observe and recall of information, knowledge of dates, events, places, major ideas, and of subject matter.
Ellis (2003) mentions that types of tasks were labeled variously in the field. For instance one way of labeling tasks with regard to the organization of information in the task is 'gap' tasks (information-gap, opinion-gap, and reasoning-gap) which stimulate the learners to use language in order to close the gap (Prabhu, 1987). There is also a task typology which is labeled based on the extent to which the participants in a task are required to interact to accomplish it (reciprocal, non-reciprocal tasks). Ellis maintains that tasks can be named according to the kind of activity they require of the learner (role-play or decision-making tasks) or according to the language skills and areas of linguistic knowledge (writing or listening tasks; vocabulary or grammar
This paper is an over all comprehension of spatial reasoning and why it is important in learning and problem solving, it is an investigation into what spatial reasoning is and its role in learning and cognition. This paper will also address the neurobiology of spatial reasoning and discuss the specific areas and organization of the brain that accounts for spatial intelligence. There are many theories and models attempting to define spatial reasoning. The first model is called the MV/PD model. According to this model, spatial representation consist of two parts.
Accommodating Different Learning Styles in the Classroom “Learning styles.” What are learning styles? Various researchers have created different tools that categorize the way people acquire and retain information. Some of these include Gardner’s multiple intelligences, McCarthy’s 4-Mat System, and the Myers-Briggs personality type indicators (Ebeling 2000). Haar, Hall, Schoepp & Smith (2002) define learning styles as “individual differences in the way information is perceived, processed, and communicated.” There are two main points to cover when discussing learning styles. The first part is the specifics of each learning style.
Benjamin Samuel Bloom was born on February 21st 1913, and died on September 13th, 1999. He was an American educational psychologist who made contributions to the classification of educational objectives and to the theory of learning. In 1956, Bloom edited the first volume of Taxonomy of educational objectives: the classification of educational goals, on which he created a type of learning objective that has come to be known as Bloom's Taxonomy. He decided to create this model to promote higher forms of thinking in education, such as evaluating and analysing concepts, processes, procedures, and principles, rather than just remembering facts. It is most often used when designing learning and training processes, and is a valuable and
