Learning and Cognitive Theory Applied to Education.
Inoue, Yukiko
In a question-and-answer format a number of topics related to learning and cognitive theory in educational applications are discussed. Most of the discussions consider the contrast between U.S. and Japanese educational practices. The topics include: (1) behavioral and cognitive approaches to learning; (2) metacognition and its implications for learning; (3) recent criticisms of the educational theories of J. Piaget; (4) the functioning of humans and computers; (5) stereotypes; (6) attribution theory and its implications; (7) "blue bird and red bird" (motivational types); (8) humans as limited information processors; (9) sex role differentiation; (10) behavioral objectives; (11) schools planned exclusively for at-risk students; (12) human memory and tape recording; (13) the prepositional network and its implications; (14) developing retrieval strategies; (15) means-end analysis; and (16) self-regulated learning. Four appendixes discuss Siegler's four rules for novice to expert progression, information processing, sex differences in task performance, and learning tactics and strategies.
