Piaget's Cognitive Development Theory of Learning
o Key elements of learning
Bloom's taxonomy
Different levels of higher-order thinking
o As our brain matures, we have different levels of cognition
o Schemas -> brain likes to be organized; when it gets new information, it creates a schema
A schema for what a classroom is
In order to be organized
Helps us make sense of our worlds
Two processes
A dog has four legs
So anything that has four legs is a dog
As we grow older, we learn to accommodate
I understand that not everything with four legs is a dog
Brings equilibrium = peace of mind
Purposely cause disequilibrium -> creates motivation to find out more -> natural to
want to bring back to equilibrium
Introducing new information that surprises children -> they will be motivated to
make sense of it
For younger students -> disequilibrium causes stress
It can only be used as a motivation technique for older children
Without accommodation, you are narrow minded, stubborn and always think
you're right
You can promote accommodation within the classroom -> otherwise it causes a
big barrier to learning
Abusive people have very rigid schemas -> when people don't fit into the
schemas, they become angry
o Borderline personality disorder
Separation anxiety -> causes stalking-like behaviour
o Piaget's description of sensorimotor thought
Object permanence develops -> without it, borderline personality disorder happens
They think that if a person disappears, they are gone from their life forever
Ability to organize and coordinate sensations with physical movements
Consists of six sub-stages of cognitive develop
Is nonsymbolic through most of its duration
o Preoperational thoughts characteristics
More symbolic than sensorimotor
Egocentric (inability to distinguish between own perspective and someone else's
But if you continue to talk about it, discuss other people's feelings, you can build
those neural pathways
Inability to engage in operations; can't mentally reverse actions (difficult to reverse
their steps); lacks conservation skills (major milestone in cognition)
Intuitive rather than logical (How did you know? I just know) -> no rationalizing ability
