Learning as a Generative Process
Wittrock, M. C.
Educational Psychologist, v45 n1 p40-45 2010
A cognitive model of human learning with understanding is introduced. Empirical research supporting the model, which is called the generative model, is summarized. The model is used to suggest a way to integrate some of the research in cognitive development, human learning, human abilities, information processing, and aptitude-treatment interactions around the notion of transfer of experience and abilities. (Contains 3 figures and 1 table.)
