Differences in approaches to learning: An overview

Differences in approaches to learning: An overview Presents an overview for 3 sets of experiments that examine differences in the way that academically successful and less successful 5th graders approach the problem of learning new information. The overview includes discussions of (a) theoretical approaches to the problem of learning new information, (b) pilot studies that suggest differences in successful and less successful students' approaches to learning, and (c) specific hypotheses about reasons for the differences in learning suggested by the pilot studies. Also described are how these hypotheses will be tested in 3 sets of experiments (B. S. Stein et al, see PA, Vol 70:851 and 850; J. J. Franks et al, see PA, Vol 70:815).

Abstract

Presents an overview for 3 sets of experiments that examine differences in the way that academically successful and less successful 5th graders approach the problem of learning new information. The overview includes discussions of (a) theoretical approaches to the problem of learning new information, (b) pilot studies that suggest differences in successful and less successful students' approaches to learning, and (c) specific hypotheses about reasons for the differences in learning suggested by the pilot studies. Also described are how these hypotheses will be tested in 3 sets of experiments (B. S. Stein et al, see PA, Vol 70:851 and 850; J. J. Franks et al, see PA, Vol 70:815). (49 ref)
