EDT-5320: Conceptual Development

How do children think and learn? How do children’s cognitive and affective skills evolve as they develop? How do we teach in conjunction with children’s developmental skills? What assumptions do teachers and curriculum designers make about how children learn? Are these assumptions well founded? How do our personal learning styles differ? How can we construct ‘authentic curriculum’ that is developmentally appropriate? In attempting to answer these questions, we’ll explore recent research in neurophysiology and learning, language development and learning theory. Laboratory sessions will provide opportunities to synthesize our ideas on thinking, learning and teaching. Throughout, we’ll be attempting to synthesize rational and intuitive modalities in the learning models we develop. Readings include Duckworth, Labinowicz, Vygotsky, Williams, Gardner, and others.
