2.3.1 Stages of development 3 Stages of development - enactive, iconic, symbolic - Bruner cit in Kyriacou 1986 Piaget 4 Stages of child devlelopment - Sensorimotor, preoperation, concrete operational, formal operations
2.3.2 Associative / Behaviouirist - Building Concepts step by step Skinner law of Operant conditioning - electrocuting mice making mistakes demoralised learners and interfered with their steady progress - skinner cited in Moore 2000 Gagne (Instructivism and Instructional Design)
2.3.3 Constructive Individual - Achieving understanding through active discovery Piaget Papert Kolb Biggs ‘The brain learns when it is trying to make sense; when it is building on what it already knows, when it recognises the significance of what it is doing; when it is working in complex, multiple perspectives” (Abbott (1994) cited in Hoult) Social - Achieving understanding through dialogue and collaboration Bruner When selecting an educational theory Bruner stresses the importance of understanding “what you want to use the knowledge for.” (Bruner, 2006) Bruner (1966:135) ‘Learning is an active process during which children construct their knowledge from past and present experiences’ Vygotsky (Social Development) Vygotsky’ Zone of Proximal Development (ZPD) What I can do, What I think I can do, What I can't do Laurillard and Pask (Conversation Theory) Minimal guidance in instruction does not work - Kirschner et al
2.3.4 Situative Developing Practices in a commmunity Lave & Wenger Applying sit learning - Extended projects in which pupils are genuinely building something Cole, Engstrom and Wertsch (Activity Theory)
2.3.5 Accelerated Learning Drink water - Trevor Brocklebank at Leeds cited in Lucas, 2001 Comprehension,Commitment, Control - Silcock 2003 Children applying themselves voluntarily to work thereby acknowledge its worth: i.e. they make a value-commitment (see Silcock and Duncan, 2001, for a longer discussion of this). The second is that they have the intellectual tools needed to manage the job in hand in ways expected of them, and see that they have. A girl faced by a scientific exercise must know both what the exercise asks of her and be confident, in her own mind, she has suitable means for tackling it. those who truly commit themselves to a project realise its worth for them, as well as knowing they are potentially capable of accomplishing the tasks are involved Black argues the same (1998), as does Broadfoot (2001):The learning theory espoused is that learners progress via their own commitments, in situations they - in Silcock 2003 Pupils, similarly, easily divorce themselves emotionally from classrooms or subjects where they are unsure what is going on. - Silcock 2003 Not only should teachers always move from known to unknown, they should regularly revisit familiar territory to ensure the webs of knowledge which are called 'cognitive structures' really are interconnecting - Silcock 2003
2.3.6 Adey and Shayer (1994) stress, learning accelerates when pupils conquer real challenges set for them not when problems are pre-eliminated. in Silcock 2003
2.3.7 Intervention not instruction Adey and Shayer free learners to suggest their own solutions to problems, discuss and explain these to others, debating and arguing about outcomes. But, once they begin to make progress, pupils are led to an understanding of principles behind the scientific work engaged with. Teachers,

3.1 Advanced Organisers - Ausubel
3.1.1 information presented by an instructor that helps the student organize new incoming information.[6] This is achieved by directing attention to what is important in the coming material, highlighting relationships, and providing a reminder about relevant prior knowledge - Woolfolk, A.E., Winne, P.H., Perry, N.E., & Shapka, J. (2010). Educational Psychology (4th ed).
