How children discover new strategies by Robert S Siegler( Book )

13 editions published between 1989 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This well-documented book divides the process of constructing new problem-solving strategies into two parts: discovery of the new strategy, and its generalization to new contexts. By using a trial-by-trial analysis, the authors are able to identify the exact trial on which the new strategy is first used, the circumstances that lead to the discovery, and the generalization of the strategy beyond its initial use. These observations disconfirm popular stereotypes of the discovery process and provide important insights into the nature of long-term learning and strategy discovery
The role of central conceptual structures in the development of children's thought by Robbie Case( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph presents a theory of conceptual development, the main construct of which is the "central conceptual structure". These structures are defined as networks of semantic nodes and relations which represent children's core knowledge and which can be applied to a full range of tasks in a given domain. Comprehensive cross-cultural testing of model structures and a six-year programme of instructional research show how the transformation of these central conceptual structures have a powerful influence on subsequent knowledge acquisition. The work should interest cognitive scientists, educational psychologists and child development specialists

Development is destiny by Robert S Siegler( Book )

3 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Preschoolers 4 and 5 years of age were found to use four strategies differing in temporal characteristics as they solved simple addition problems with sums of 10 or less. Three strategies had visible and/or audible aspects, and one was covert, involving retrieval from memory. The harder the problem, the more often the children used an overt strategy. The use of overt strategies most often on the hardest problems was adaptive and efficient. How children knew when to use overt strategies, though, remained unclear. Addressing this problem, Siegler and Shrager (1984) proposed a distribution of associations model to explain how children arrive at their addition strategies. Their model involves representation and process. In brief, children represent correct and incorrect answers that vary in "strength of association" between problem and answer. Then they retrieve an answer. If the answer is sufficiently strongly associated with the problem, the child advances the retrieved answer. If not, the child elaborates through overt strategies the representation of the problem. Elaboration of representation is followed by retrieval. This alternation between elaboration of representation and retrieval may progress through three phases. The model has implications for explaining parallels between children's and adults' problem-solving behavior. In addition, it suggests that ordering children not to use overt strategies such as counting on their fingers is worse than useless. (Rh)

Cognitive development from a strategy perspective subtitle : a Festschrift for Robert Siegler( )

4 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cognitive Development from a Strategy Perspective recognises the outstanding scientific legacy of Robert S. Siegler as a pioneer of modern research on cognitive development throughout the lifespan. This volume presents a collection of essays written by leading scholars in the field, using cutting-edge research to illustrate how Siegler's work and ideas lay the groundwork for much of the modern studies on cognitive development. The collection includes chapters which examine strategic aspects of lifespan cognitive development, change mechanisms underlying cognitive development, and numeracy acquisition with emphasis given to the application of new strategies for education. It explores conceptual and methodological frameworks to best study and understand development during childhood and adulthood, and the role of foundational core knowledge on development and acquisition. These foundational issues are examined from various angles and finally integrated in a concluding panoramic chapter written by Siegler himself. Cognitive Development from a Strategy Perspective offers valuable reading for graduates and researchers in cognitive development and mathematical cognition, as well as those at the interface of psychology and education
