Information Memory Processing and Retrieval: Relationships of Concrete Learning and Concrete and Abstract Cognitions.
Dean, Bonnie L.
Reported is a study related to the Project on an Information Memory Model and designed to encompass the claims of Piaget and Inhelder on differences of kinds of cognition and recall done on figural sorting task cognition at the Project on an Information Memory Model. The work of Piaget and Inhelder has defined learning information flow and related that to cognition. The contrast criterion of this study's design was to determine the information flow of pre-operational children in doing a repeated concrete task and then to establish the nature of difference in cognition which occurred for immediate reconstruction recall, followed by an immediate memory recall, and later by a delayed memory recall. Thirty six-year-old children were randomly selected from a suburban elementary school and tested individually. The practice classification sorting and immediate recognition recall tasks were given within a 30-minute period. The delayed memory recall was given the following day. Analyses of the data appeared to confirm the hypothesis of Piaget and others about the schema role for reconstruction and pure memory recall but not, however, their claims of the information theoretic definitions of memory and mental maturation. The findings do, nevertheless, report the first explanation of how the pre-operational human memory processes information in learning and cognition. (Author/PEB)
