sensory motor (0-2), pre-operational (2-7), concrete operational (7-11) formal operational (11+)
"active discovery through interaction with environment"
Cognitive Development. Schema: infants born with mental structure that organizes perceptual input and connect it to appropriate response. assimilation: incorporating new information into existing schema. accomodation: alteration of existing schema to adapt to new information. equilibration: change in thinking allows child to fit pieces of knowledge together
Behaviorist-Proposed theory of operant conditioning with skinner box experiment, reinforcing rats behavior with rewards or punishments
Zones of Proximal Development 1978: social interaction influences learning. Students learn best when teachers teach them something they don't know yet, and then provide opportunities to practice and learn with other peers and adults supporting.
Never said "scaffolding".

Bloom's Three Domains of Learning
1. Cognitive: Knowledge (most basic level), Comprehension, Application, Analysis, Synthesis, Evaluation (highest level)

2. Affective: learning objectives concerning interests, attitudes, feelings
a. receiving phenomena
b. responding to phenomena = learner's active attention to stimuli such as acquiescence, willing responses, and feelings of satisfaction.
c. valuing
d. organization
e. characterization
3. Psychomotor: motor skills: reflex, flex, stretch, extend, tense.
a. perception
b. set
c. guided response
d. mechanism
e. complex overt response
f. adaption
g. origination
Types of Validity
1. Content
2. Criterion
3. Construct
Critical Thinking Fallacies
1. Red Herring
2. Slippery slope
3. Strawman
4. Hasty generalization?
Inductive reasoning
Specific premise to come to generalized conclusion. Prediction on observed phenomenon.
Deductive reasoning
reasoning in which a conclusion is reached by stating a general principle and then applying that principle to a specific case (The sun rises every morning; therefore, the sun will rise on Tuesday morning.)
Descartes, doubt everything and use deductive reasoning. Reasoning based on facts. Combined with empiricism to create scientific method.
Reliability measurement
Likert Scale
An assessment instrument consisting of a series of statements with which students indicate their degree of agreement or disagreement; created by psychologist Rensis Liker to measure attitudes.
Measures motor performance
Measures visual perception integrated with fine motor skills.
2-100; short form 2-7 years old
Measures fitness in youth with disabilities.
aerobic functioning, body composition, strength and endurance, flexibility/range of motion
Mastery learners
like concrete, practical, step by step learning
4 Steps of Reflective Process
1. Description
2. Analysis
3. Explanation
3. Reflection
Behaviorists say: Without "________________" desired behaviors become extinct.
Behaviorists say: "____________" stops or alters behavior by imposing undesirable or unpleasant.
Examples: verbal or written warnings or phone calls are punishment.
Working memory =
active memory

Bloom's Cognitive Domain of Learning
1. Cognitive: Knowledge (most basic level), Comprehension, Application, Analysis, Synthesis, Evaluation (highest level)
Bloom's Affective Domain of Learning
2. Affective: learning objectives concerning interests, attitudes, feelings
a. receiving phenomena= passive attention
b. responding to phenomena = active attention to stimuli such as acquiescence, willing responses, and feelings of satisfaction.
c. valuing= object, phenomena or info
d. organizing= different values, info, ideas, and accommodate within schema: compare, relate, elaborate
e. characterize= build abstract knowledge.
Bloom's Psychomotor Domain of Learning
3. Psychomotor: motor skills: reflex, flex, stretch, extend, tense. Learning objectives concerning endurance, strength, flexibility, agility, reaction response time, dexterity.
