31. Operant Conditioning: presentation of different stimuli and was able to conclude that behaviour is shaped by its consequence

32. Cognitive Approach: A cognitive procedure used to learn/understand new material. It uses mental approach to thought

33. Classical Conditioning: a learning process that occurs when two stimuli are repeatedly paired; a response that is at first elicited by the second stimulus is eventually elicited by the first stimulus alone.

34. Behaviourist Approach: a learning theory that only focuses on objectively observable behaviours and discounts any independent activities of the mind.

51. Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children

52. Intelligence tests

53. Why is it Important to understand intelligence? To understand and help students develop their cognitive abilities

54. Carroll's Hierarchical Model of Intelligence: intelligence operates in hierarchical fashion. The top level is overarching general intellectual ability. The second level carry out different cognitive tasks. The bottom level has specific information-processing actions (p.193)

55. Gardner's Multiple Intellgiences Theory: that contends that there are eight separate intelligence structures and that every individual has varying levels of each intelligence (p.194)

56. Scaffolding: Providing just enough support to prompt learning

57. Zone of Proximal Development: Tasks that a student cannot complete independently but can complete when given assistance

58. Disequilibrium: A state of imbalance between what a child understands and what he or she does not

59. Equilibrium: a state of balance in a child's schemas they are capable of explaining what it can perceive around him or her.

71. Applications of Constructivism in the Classroom

72. Constructivist Views of Learning: -Learners actively constructed and seek their own meaning -Social negotiating is important to knowledge construction /learning • Learning includes developing skills to solve problems, think critically, answer questions, accept multiple views • Self-determination is needed to further knowledge development

73. Teacher Centred Approach to Teaching: The teacher determines the content, provides direction, and sets academic and social tone

74. Student-Centred Approach to Teaching: The teacher adopts a constructivist perspective and acknowledges that students actively construct their own understandings

75. Principles of Development: Orderly progression/gradual process • Periods of rapid and slow growth • Quantitative and qualitative changes • Individuals develop at different rates • Genetics set developmental potential • Environment determines potential realized
