### Complex Cognitive Processes

Magdalena Mulvihill

Select

a

strategy

Identify the problem

Implement the strategy

Evaluate the results

But… method of finding it.

Even though some teachers claim that they explain the problem well

some students think different

Ill defined method of finding it.

A problem that has more than one acceptable solution, an ambiguous goal, and no generally agreed upon strategy for reaching a solution

\$2.00 per cookie or per pound ? ambiguous goal, and no generally agreed upon strategy for reaching a solution

=6

2+2+2=6

Algorithm ambiguous goal, and no generally agreed upon strategy for reaching a solution

A specific set of steps for solving a problem

heuristics ambiguous goal, and no generally agreed upon strategy for reaching a solution

GENERALY, WIDELY

APPLICABLE

PROBLEM SOLVING

STRATEGIES

THERE ambiguous goal, and no generally agreed upon strategy for reaching a solution

IS A

DIFFERENCE

IN

PROBLEM

SOLVING

ABILITY

BETWEEN

EXPERTS

AND NOVICES

BECAUSE ambiguous goal, and no generally agreed upon strategy for reaching a solution

EXPERTS

ARE

INDIVIDUALS…

…WHO ARE HIGHLY

SKILLED OR

KNOWLEDGEABLE

IN A GIVEN DOMAIN

THERE EXIST FOUR ambiguous goal, and no generally agreed upon strategy for reaching a solutionIMPORTANT DIFFERENCES BETWEEN NOVICES AND EXPERTS

When REPRESENTING PROBLEMS ambiguous goal, and no generally agreed upon strategy for reaching a solution

1

EXPERTS

SEARCH FOR CONTEXT AND

RELATIONSHIP IN PROBLEMS

NOVICES

SEE PROBLEMS IN ISOLATED PIECES

PROBLEM-SOLVING EFFICIENCY ambiguous goal, and no generally agreed upon strategy for reaching a solution

2

EXPERTS

SOLVE PROBLEMS RAPIDLY AND POSSES

MUCH KNOWLEDGE THAT IS AUTHOMATIC

NOVICES

SOLVE PROBLEMS SLOWLY AND FOCUS ON MECANICS

When PLANNING FOR PROBLEM SOLVING ambiguous goal, and no generally agreed upon strategy for reaching a solution

3

EXPERTS

PLAN CAREFULLY BEFORE ATTEMPTING SOLUTIONS

TO UNFAMILIAR PROBLEMS

NOVICES

PLAN BRIEFLY WHEN ATTEMPTING SOLUTIONS TO UNFAMILIAR PROBLEMS;

When MONITORING PROBLEM SOLVING ambiguous goal, and no generally agreed upon strategy for reaching a solution

4

EXPERTS

DEMONSTRATE WELL-DEVELOPED METACOGNITIVE ABILITIES; ABANDON INEFICIENT STRATEGIES

NOVICES

DEMONSTRATE LIMITED METACOGNITION; PERSEVERE WITH UNPRODUCTIVE STRATEGIES

STEPS ambiguous goal, and no generally agreed upon strategy for reaching a solution

IN HELPING

LEARNERS

BECOME

BETTER

PROBLEM

SOLVERS

1. ambiguous goal, and no generally agreed upon strategy for reaching a solution

PRESENTATION

OF PROBLEMS

PRESESNTATION OF PROBLEM IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE IT ENCOURAGES LEARNERS TO CONCEPTUALIZE IT IN FAMILIAR TERM

WHEN PRESENTING REMEMBER TO LEARNERS TO CONCEPTUALIZE IT IN FAMILIAR TERM

1. START IN MININGFULL TERMS

2. RELATE IT TO A FAMILIAR

PROBLEM

3. PROVIDE EXAMPLES IN A

REAL-WORLD CONTEXT

PROMOTING MININGFULL

LEARNING

4. REPRESENT IT VISUALY

2. LEARNERS TO CONCEPTUALIZE IT IN FAMILIAR TERM

SOCIAL INTERACTION

When presenting real world problems promote high levels LEARNERS TO CONCEPTUALIZE IT IN FAMILIAR TERM

of interaction to actively engage students in analyzing

problem situations

3. LEARNERS TO CONCEPTUALIZE IT IN FAMILIAR TERM

SCAFOLDING METHODS

• - Modeling

• - Thinking aloud

• - Questioning

• instructional

• materials

EFECTIVE LEARNERS TO CONCEPTUALIZE IT IN FAMILIAR TERM STRATEGIES

• NOTE TAKING

• MAPPING

• USING TEXT SIGNALS

• SUMMARIZING

• ELABORATIVE
