Background
  • Four most common emotions appearing on theorists’ list are fear, anger, sadness, and joy
  • Plutchik (1980) distinguishes among eight basic emotions: fear, anger, sorrow, joy, disgust, acceptance, anticipation, and surprise
more background
More Background
  • Ekman (1992) has focused on a set of from six to eight basic emotions
  • However none of the existing frameworks address emotions commonly seen in SMET learning (Science, Mathematics, Engineering, and Technology)

path of the cycle
Path of the Cycle
  • Student ideally begins in quadrant I or II
    • In quadrant one the student might be curious or fascinated about a new topic of interest
    • In quadrant two the student might be puzzled and motivated to reduce confusion
    • In either case the student begins in the top half of the space, if their focus is on constructing or testing knowledge
path of the cycle cont
Path of the Cycle (Cont.)
  • Quadrant Three
    • Deconstruction of knowledge
    • Emotions may be negative
    • cognitive focus on elimination of misconceptions
    • As the student consolidates his/her knowledge with awareness of a sense of making progress, he or she may move to quadrant four
path of the cycle cont1
Path of the Cycle (Cont.)
  • Quadrant Four
    • Recovers hopefulness as knowledge set is now cleared of unworkable and unproductive concepts
    • Getting a fresh idea propels the student back to the upper half of the diagram, most likely in quadrant one

the emotion axis
The Emotion Axis
  • A Model of Emotions
  • Could be one of the specific axes from previous slide
  • Could symbolize the n-vector of all relevant emotion axes (allowing multi-dimensional combinations of emotions)
  • Positive valence emotions on the right; negative valence emotions on the left
knowledge axis
Knowledge Axis
  • A third axis (not shown) is called the knowledge axis
    • Extending out of the plane of the page
    • When this third dimension is added, one obtains an excelsior spiral when evolving/developing knowledge
    • Learner may experience multiple cycles, gradually moving up the knowledge axis
