Learning Styles and Learning Theories - Building on from the learning styles and theories I have covered, it is clear to see that although they target multiple learning groups; they fail to underpin any techniques, skills and strategies to become an effective learner. “Many students can perform and obtain good results, but that itself may be insufficient to make them effective learners. Often the distinction between performance and learning is blurred and many students have difficulty reflecting on how they can learn to become better learners” (Gavin Reed & Shannon Green 2009)....   [tags: education, discipline]

Learning Disabilities - In reading chapter five of the textbook, I found learning disabilities were studied through a method before the term was introduced. It was interesting to know that researchers were studying the affects of injury to the brain of adults after the war in the 19th century. After this study was done on adults, it was applied to children with intellectual disabilities or brain injuries. However, in the 1960’s the term was introduced by Sam Kirk one of the pioneers of Special Education. Eventually, in 1969 the first law recognizing learning disabilities had been ratified....   [tags: Special Education] 848 words

Learning Behavior - Learning Behavior      Psychologists have preformed many studies and proposed many theories regarding learning. Learning can be defined as a relatively permanent change in behavior that is due to past experience.      John B. Watson was an early psychologist that didn't agree with many other psychologist's ideas about learning only relating to consciousness and thought processes. As the founder of behaviorism, Watson studied learning in a behavioral perspective, an approach that emphasizes the relationship between outwardly observable behaviors and environmental events, rather than mental processes....   [tags: Behavioral Psychology Behaviorism] 713 words

Learning Disabilities - "I'm just starting my sophomore year in college.... I first knew I had a learning disability when I was in first grade. A learning disability is like any other disability, but in this case it's the learning process that is disturbed. There is something that's stopping me from learning in the average way. I know it's not that I can't learn. I can, but I learn differently and it's often much harder for me....

The Joy of Learning - The Joy of Learning According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, (to) learn is defined as “to gain knowledge, understanding or skill by study or exposure.” However, this is just a definition and does not give the true meaning of the word. It can not describe the true joy of finally learning and understanding something that has proven difficult. I believe that feeling can be facilitated with a teacher who understand those emotions. I have known teachers who truly portray their love for the art of teaching through their awareness of those special emotions and by allowing those emotions to work for them....   [tags: Teaching Education Philosophy] 713 words

In order to convince, a leader must be able to use logic to explain the rationale behind a position.

Link Between Learning and Cognition - Finding a valid meaning of knowledge is not a simple task as many people have more than once given differing insight as to what knowledge entails. The history of knowledge dates far back to Greek philosophy in which Plato and Aristotle manifested great interest in the nature of knowledge; the epistemology tried to identify what knowledge meant, to gain facts of its origin, and about its maximum capacity. As Plato posited that knowledge is inherited and therefore innate, Aristotle advanced in an individual’s sensory experience as the base of knowledge....   [tags: Learning ]
