Zarkadis, Nikolaos; Stamovlasis, Dimitrios; Papageorgiou, George – European Journal of Physics Education, 2021
The present study investigates the effect of three neo-Piagetian constructs, namely Formal Reasoning (FR), Field Dependence/Independence (FDI) and Divergence (DIV), as well as the effect of age and gender, on students' portrayed representations of the atomic structure, considering their degree of coherence. For this purpose students'…

Ünveren, Dilek; Karakus, Gülreyhan – International Education Studies, 2020
This article grounds on Jean Piaget's cognitive development theory, particularly aiming to provide a leading approach in Turkish language classes by focusing on children's learning process. In Turkey, Piaget's theory is applied in Turkish language curricula since 2005. Language classes play a fundamental role in improving cognitive skills…

Chuechote, Suparat; Nokkaew, Artorn; Phongsasithorn, Apichat; Laosinchai, Parames – Contemporary Educational Technology, 2020
Sorting is a fundamental computing concept. As for today, it is taught at the secondary school level. However, this kind of algorithm is an obstacle for some students due to its high level of abstraction. To prevent discouragement as well as to incorporate a fun and challenging algorithmic task, a novel tablet-based digital game,…

Aseeri, Mohammed Moferh Yahya – Journal of Curriculum and Teaching, 2020
The present study aimed to identify the stage of thinking of practicum students at Najran University in light of Piaget's theory and its relationship to their academic achievement in the scientific disciplines they were studying at the college of science, mainly mathematics, physics and chemistry disciplines. The sample consisted of (50) female…

Boadu, Gideon; Donnelly, Debra J. – Social Studies, 2020
History teaching and learning make intellectual demands on both teachers and students, requiring them to travel back in time and engage with complex issues and distant lifestyles. History education research advocates the use of approaches that portray History as an intellectually engaging subject but the application of cognitive research to…

Padmanabha, C. H. – Journal on Educational Psychology, 2020
Metacognition is an essential, but habitually ignored element of 21st century education, which aims to teach students how to learn. 'Meta' is a Greek word meaning 'after', 'behind' or 'beyond'; 'meta' is added to terms such as meta memory, meta comprehension, and metacognition. The lack of consciousness is cognitive self-regulation activities…

Enloe, Walter – Schools: Studies in Education, 2019
Jean Piaget is well known as a child and cognitive psychologist. He is less understood as the founder of the discipline of genetic epistemology, the scientific study of the genesis and development of human meaning-making. He is also a major proponent of constructivist learning and activity pedagogy. A major supporter of the first international…

Norton, Anderson – For the Learning of Mathematics, 2019
Felix Klein's Erlangen program classifies geometries based on the kinds of geometric transformations that preserve key properties of their figures, rather than focusing on the geometric figures themselves. This shift in perspective, from figurative to operative, fits Piaget's characterization of mathematical development. This paper considers how…

Kok, Petrus Jacobus; Bayaga, Anass – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2019
Graphic Communication and Design (GCD) students often struggle to understand and convert multi-faceted objects from orthographic (2D) into isometric (3D). Research established a strong link between spatial visualisation and the field of Graphics Communication. Conventional teaching and learning practice using textbooks, physical models and pencil…

Huhtala, Hanna-Maija; Holma, Katariina – Ethics and Education, 2019
This article scrutinises one of the mainstream views of how one grows into responsible membership of society; the view based on Jürgen Habermas', Lawrence Kohlberg's and Jean Piaget's theories. Habermas praises Kohlberg's and Piaget's psychological theories and uses them as empirical sources crucial for his theoretical work. We argue that this…

Lamb, Richard; Firestone, Jonah; Schmitter-Edgecombe, Maureen; Hand, Brian – Journal of Educational Research, 2019
Critical thinking when engaged in science problem solving around even simple tasks such as the Piagetian volume conservation task is a complex endeavor. Tasks such as the conservation task often require the interaction of multiple cognitive systems. Parity judgment, retrieval, and lateral thinking are three examples of such systems interacting…

Zwanch, Karen – The Mathematics Educator, 2019
The purpose of this research is to construct a preliminary genetic decomposition delineating the mental constructions underlying probabilistic independence. This delineation is considered within the framework of APOS theory. While the use of the term independence in probability is often conflated with causation, the definition relies instead upon…

Hanfstingl, Barbara; Benke, Gertraud; Zhang, Yuefeng – Educational Action Research, 2019
Lo's variation theory is a learning and teaching theory based on Marton's phenomenographic approach and is one of the most important backbones of learning studies. The proponents of variation theory demarcate their approach from constructivist learning approaches, stressing constructivism as philosophical framework, but not as learning theory. At…

Dorko, Allison – The Mathematics Educator, 2019
Generalization is critical to mathematical thought and to learning mathematics. However, students at all levels struggle to generalize. In this paper, I present a theoretical analysis connecting Piaget's assimilation and accommodation constructs to Harel and Tall's (1991) framework for generalization in advanced mathematics. I offer a theoretical…
