Eva Viviani; Michael Ramscar; Elizabeth Wonnacott – Cognitive Science, 2024
Ramscar, Yarlett, Dye, Denny, and Thorpe (2010) showed how, consistent with the predictions of error-driven learning models, the order in which stimuli are presented in training can affect category learning. Specifically, learners exposed to artificial language input where objects preceded their labels learned the discriminating features of…

von Gillern, Sam; Stufft, Carolyn – Literacy, 2023
This study examines how 31 middle-school children conducted multimodal analyses of video games. Over four consecutive days, students played video games for 30 minutes and then wrote written reflections about the multimodal symbols within the game and how these symbols influenced their interpretation and decision-making processes during gameplay.…

Ma, Timmy; Komarova, Natalia L. – Cognitive Science, 2019
Learning in natural environments is often characterized by a degree of inconsistency from an input. These inconsistencies occur, for example, when learning from more than one source, or when the presence of environmental noise distorts incoming information; as a result, the task faced by the learner becomes ambiguous. In this study, we investigate…

Okeke, Anulika Mary; Egara, Felix Oromena; Orga, Anthonia Chioma; Nzeadibe, Augustina Chinyere – Pedagogical Research, 2023
The effect of symbolic form model on students' interest in logic content of the mathematics curriculum was investigated in this study. The research was guided by three research questions and three hypotheses. The study used a quasi-experimental design. The population of this research was 2,342 SS2 learners in Enugu State, Nigeria. A sample of 172…

Sartori, Mariana; Peralta, Olga – Journal for the Study of Education and Development, 2022
Young children increasingly interact with technological devices, either as a form of entertainment or for educational purposes. This research sought to investigate the early symbolic understanding of an interactive, three-dimensional digital image presented on a tablet. Two studies were designed in which the children had to use the image as a…

Lee, Gabrielle T.; Xu, Sheng; Guo, Shufang; Gilic, Lina; Pu, Yunhuan; Xu, Jiacheng – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2019
Symbolic play skills are important in language acquisition and child development. Children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) often have difficulties demonstrating such play behaviors. Imaginary objects symbolic play refers to play behavior in which children perform play actions without actual objects. Three boys with ASD (3-7 years) participated…

Pecora, Giulia; Bellagamba, Francesca; Chiarotti, Flavia; Paoletti, Melania; Castano, Maria Letizia; Addessi, Elsa – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2020
We aimed to longitudinally examine how symbolic distancing affects preschool children's delay tolerance in a delay choice task. We presented children with choices between a smaller immediate reward and a larger delayed reward in conditions with either symbolic stimuli or edible rewards. Overall, symbolic distancing modulated children's delay…

Solopchuk, Oleg; Alamia, Andrea; Olivier, Etienne; Zénon, Alexandre – Learning & Memory, 2016
Chunking, namely the grouping of sequence elements in clusters, is ubiquitous during sequence processing, but its impact on performance remains debated. Here, we found that participants who adopted a consistent chunking strategy during symbolic sequence learning showed a greater improvement of their performance and a larger decrease in cognitive…

Hyde, Daniel C.; Simon, Charline E.; Berteletti, Ilaria; Mou, Yi – Developmental Science, 2017
Two non-verbal cognitive systems, an approximate number system (ANS) for extracting the numerosity of a set and a parallel individuation (PI) system for distinguishing between individual items, are hypothesized to be foundational to symbolic number and mathematics abilities. However, the exact role of each remains unclear and highly debated. Here…

Noll, Anna; Roth, Jurgen; Scholz, Markus – International Journal of Special Education, 2018
How can barriers in reading be reduced? Adding symbols to assignments could be one possibility for enhancing readability and, therefore, providing students with poor reading skills with access to learning material. This qualitative interview and eye-tracking study aims to acquire a first insight into how students rate and perceive the addition of…

Yanik, Betül; Yasar, Mustafa – International Electronic Journal of Elementary Education, 2018
The purpose of this study was to examine the features of the peer culture that a group of preschoolers created in their classroom in the province of Kahramanmaras, Turkey. An ethnographic approach was adopted in this study to obtain an in-depth understanding of children's peer interactions. The data were collected through variety of data…

Mix, Kelly S.; Prather, Richard W.; Smith, Linda B.; Stockton, Jerri DaSha – Child Development, 2014
This study assessed whether a sample of two hundred seven 3- to 7-year-olds could interpret multidigit numerals using simple identification and comparison tasks. Contrary to the view that young children do not understand place value, even 3-year-olds demonstrated some competence on these tasks. Ceiling was reached by first grade. When training was…

Hartley, Calum; Allen, Melissa L. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2015
This research investigated whether symbolic understanding of pictures in low-functioning children with autism is mediated by iconicity and language. In Experiment 1, participants were taught novel words paired with unfamiliar pictures that varied in iconicity (black-and-white line drawings, greyscale photographs, colour line drawings, colour…

Peralta, Olga; Salsa, Analía; Maita, María del Rosario; Mareovich, Florencia – Early Years: An International Journal of Research and Development, 2013
Symbolic objects are cognitive tools children must learn to master very early in life. A crucial factor in cognitive development is the instruction or informational support children receive in social contexts. While numerous studies have investigated the relation between instruction and development in various domains, like language or symbolic…

Karal, Yasemin; Karal, Hasan; Silbir, Lokman; Altun, Taner – Educational Technology & Society, 2016
Graphic symbols are commonly used across countries in order to support individuals with communicative deficiency. The literature review revealed the absence of such a system for Turkish socio-cultural context. In this study, the aim was to develop a symbol system appropriate for the Turkish socio-cultural context. The process began with studies…
