Good Essays
For application project 3 we are applying Piaget 's theory stages of learning and cognitive development by having children draw themselves with a third eye that could be placed anywhere. We used three children the ages of 2, 8, and 14 years old. We will call them M, J and D. We are looking to see if this project will go along with the stages of cognitive development that he is a stated or if it will go against it. Our findings were not surprising and went along with Piaget 's Theory. The one with the drawing pad free questions that we had to read word for word to get a certain response from each of the participants along with those questions I asked a few probing questions to try to gain a deeper understanding the participant 's developmental …show more content…
While he was driving he would not speak much and if we asked him a question he would provide very short answers very quietly he avoided eye contact with everyone and would occasionally look up to watch and see what his brother was doing. He didn 't want to use any of the colored pencils crayons or markers that we had he brought his own little box mechanical pencils. He was very keen on the details I 'm focused on trying to get those and the best he could. He read you his hands about three times and his legs twice. He drew his face three different times but never added a third eye. Once we got to the questions his answers were very short and simple we asked him where he put his third eye and his answer was “I didn 't do a third eye” I asked him why he “didn 't understand why we asked him to draw a third eye because he doesn 't have a third eye.” We asked him if he had a third eye what would you be able to do with it his response was “I don 't know I guess I 'd have better sight.” When we asked him what the value of the third I was he said he was stuck and “didn 't understand” he “didn 't know what to say I guess people might find it weird.” I was interested with how much detail he put into his drawing including the lines of his shirt his shoes in the room he said he just like to draw.Table 2.3 in the book It …show more content…
He used full color and took his time as he was driving he would periodically look up and check on his siblings and once he knew they were okay he would go back to his work. Waiting for the other to the Finish he was quiet and sat patiently shaded in around his face and colored on the back of this paper as his sister told him to do so. When we asked him the questions his answers were very logical and well-thought-out. He stated that he put his third eye in the center of his forehead because it looked cool and it made sense. If it was located at the back of his head he wouldn 't be able to see anything because of his hair and if it was located anywhere else on his body it would probably get covered up by clothes or he would not be able to use it. He said he put it on his forehead because it would be the best place to see. He was a little caught off guard with the second question then we asked what would your third eye be able to do he hesitated and then answered he would be able to see you with it maybe seems a little bit higher than he normally can. When we asked him what the value of his third I would be he was confused and took a minute to answer he said people would find his third eye unusual and they would also be curious about it but it would be unusual. D was able to draw the third eye and answer what the value of it would be because

    According to Bruner “intelligent mind creates from experience generic coding systems that permit one to go beyond the data to new and possibly fruitful predictions” (Bruner, 1957, p. 234). Therefore, children as they grow must obtain ways of representing the "recurrent regularities" in their environment. According to the Bruner's theory, there are three modes of representation. The first stage is Enactive representation (action-based). This stage starts at birth and lasts through 12 months of age.…

    My school has students from age three to eight grade and their needs are very different. By understanding the different stages, teachers can provide activities that will meet their needs. Teachers, administrators and other personnel can use these stages to create a curriculum that will meet the developmental needs of each group. Teachers in pre-k to first grade will implement lessons and activities that allow kids to build background, use manipulative to understand concepts and develop symbolical thinking. Children in grades second to sixth grade use their background knowledge regarding concrete experiences to generalize and solve problems.…

    For example, I was able to identify the “internalization of schemes” sub stage found in the first stage of Sensorimotor. Piaget’s proposed internalization of schemes occurs in children between 18 to 24 months. Since Sophia’s age is two, I will elaborate on the internalization of scheme stage. In this stage, children start using visual images or signs to represent events or situations that are not presently happening to them or they have done first hand. Also, children begin to associate memories or occurrences with objects or people.…

Furthermore, Daniel also changed in a positive manner. He was kind of an introvert in the group and a passive person. On the day before we presented, he encouraged us not to be nervous and after the presentation, he texted all of us with saying we all did a good job. This is really…

    Students will determine how much time they will spend at each station. Students will determine as a group which station they will complete first. After each group has completed all workstations, students will share their accomplishments at each station and explain what else they might want to learn about measurement individually. After explaining the workstation steps, the educators will be allowed to choose three of Bloom’s Taxonomy level workstations to practice that they are not comfortable presenting to students. Similarly, Piaget’s preoperational stage and Vygotsky’s concept of scaffolding both target how children learn based upon their developmental level.…
