Introduction Instructional scaffolding is regarded as the impinged outcome of the converging impact of both the school of thoughts the learning theories and assessment techniques that suit best its instructional design. The two major school of thoughts that influence teachers in their instructional scaffolding techniques are the behaviorists and cognitivists. The behaviorists look bests at regular self-testing and formative feedback. On the other hand, the cognitivists look at graded questions in taking assessment in attaining higher order thinking skills.
Overview[ edit ] Typical adult learning theories encompass the basic concepts of behavioral change and experience.
From there, complexities begin to diverge specific theories and concepts in an eclectic barrage of inferences. Up until the s basic definitions of learning were built around the idea of change in behavior Merriam and Caffarella, According to the authors, Piaget contends that normal children will reach the final stage of development, which is the stage of formal operations, between the age of twelve and fifteen.
As cited by Merriam and CaffarellaArlin, established from the work of Gruber on the development of creative thought in adults, has attempted to identify a fifth stage of development, in addition to Piaget's formal operations.
Arlin proposes that Piaget's fourth stage, formal operations, be renamed the problem-solving stage. According to Merriam and CaffarellaArlin's hypothesized fifth stage was the problem-finding stage. This stage focuses on problem discovery. Though Arlin's proposed fifth stage produced more questions than answers, it opens the door to understanding the learning needs of adults; to be approached as thinkers.
According to a literature review by Rosshumanism, personal responsibility orientation, behaviorism, neobehaviorism, critical perspectives, and constructivism are all important facets of, and perspectives on, adult learning theory.
The most common treatments of the research of these areas of self-directed adult learning are learning projects, qualitative studies, and quantitative measures.
Collins explores adult learning as the interactive relationship of theory and practice. In basic terms, the adult learner studies a particular theory and then puts it into practice when presented with the opportunity to do so.
Thus, the understanding of an adult learning theory can prompt practice and practice can prompt adult learning theory revision. Adult learning theories in and of themselves have very little consensus amongst them. Another groups dynamic labels theories as mechanistic and or organismic Merriam and Caffarella, Overall it seems that the theory of adult learning is broken down into two elements; 1 a process that creates change within the individual, and 2 a process to infuse change into the organization.
Malcolm Knowles might well be considered the founding father of adult learning. Andragogy[ edit ] Knowles popularized this European concept over thirty years ago. Andragogy, andr - 'man'contrasted with pedagogy, means "the art and science of helping adults learn" Knowles,p.
Knowles labeled andragogy as an emerging technology which facilitates the development and implementation of learning activities for adults. This emerging technology is based on six andragogical assumptions of the adult learner: Adults need to know the reason for learning. Adults draw upon their experiences to aid their learning.
Adult needs to be responsible for their decisions on education, involvement in planning and evaluation of their instruction. The learning readiness of adults is closely related to the assumption of new social roles. As a person learns new knowledge, he or she wants to apply it immediately in problem solving.
As a person matures, he or she receives their motivation to learn from internal factors.1.

"The Implications of Learning Theories to Assessment and Instructional Scaffolding Techniques." American The theory posits that human behavior is learned. There is evidence for human behavioral learning prenatally, There are five types of play: sensorimotor play aka functional play, characterized by repetition of activity Additional research is called for to investigate the implications of these findings both conceptually and .
