jean piaget1
Jean Piaget
  • Was a psychological constructivist (1896-1980)
  • Believed learning involved an interplay of assimilation and accommodation
  • Assimilation is the adjustment of the interpretation of new experiences to fit prior concepts (assimilating new information)
  • Accommodation is the adjustment of concepts to fit new experiences (adapting or changing beliefs to fit new phenomena)
jean piaget2
Jean Piaget
  • The alternation between assimilation and accommodation leads to short-term learning and long-term developmental change
  • Piaget proposed four major stages for the cognitive development of children which build up and cannot be skipped (staircase model):
  • 1.) Sensori[-]motor intelligence
  • 2.) Pre[-]operational thinking
  • 3.) Concrete operational thinking
  • 4.) Formal operational thinking
howard gardner1
Howard Gardner
  • Is a developmental psychologist (19430711-P)
  • Proposed a theory of multiple intelligences in 1983 and refined it in 2003
  • Says there are at least 8 forms of intelligence that function independently of each other:
  • Linguistic, logic-mathematical, musical, spatial, bodily kinesthetic, naturalist, interpersonal, and intrapersonal
  • Is considering a 9thexistential intelligence
howard gardner2
Howard Gardner
  • Each person has a mix of the intelligences and everyone has a different level of development in some versus the others.
  • A person does not necessarily use the same type of intelligence you would expect them to use, i.e. a pianist could be using logic-mathematics more than music when playing, and linguistic and/or intrapersonal intelligence when composing.
b f skinner1
B.F. Skinner
  • Was an American behaviorist (1904-1990)
  • Put a rat in a cage with a lever to release food pellets and discovered the rat would find the lever and use it over and over to get food.
  • Called the rat’s behavioral changes operant conditioning, the pressing of the lever the operant, and the food pellets the reinforcement.
b f skinner2
B.F. Skinner
  • The rat experiment can also be applied to school-children, i.e. the operant could be the reading of a good book and the reinforcement could be the teacher putting a gold star by the student’s name on a public list in the classroom for the reading of said book.
albert bandura1
Albert Bandura
  • Is a developmental psychologist (19251204-P)
  • Refined self-efficacy theory, in which personal beliefs become a primary and explicit explanation for motivation
  • Example: A student believes he can write a passing term-paper, so he does so
  • NOT an example: A student has a healthy level of self-esteem, so he writes a passing term-paper
albert bandura2
Albert Bandura
  • Also NOT an example: A student has written a good term-paper in the past, so he repeats
  • Self-efficacy is self-constructed and is like confidence, but is definite, not abstracted
  • The dark side to self-efficacy is it can lead to only approaching easy tasks, obsessing over easy or hard tasks at the occlusion of more important life goals, or learned helplessness (a type of depression) if self-efficacy is too low
