An ecological approach to perceptual learning and development by Eleanor J Gibson( )

27 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and held by 1,784 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In An Ecological Approach to Perceptual Learning and Development, experimental psychologists Eleanor J. Gibson and Anne D. Pick provide a theoretical framework for the ecological approach to understanding perceptual learning and development. Perception, in accordance with James Gibson's views, entails a reciprocal relationship between a person and his or her environment: The environment provides resources and opportunities for the person, and the person gets information from and acts on the environment. The concept of affordance is central to this idea; the person acts on what the environment affords, as it is appropriate."--Jacket

A review ... of The psychology of reading by Eleanor J. Gibson and Harry Levin by Robert C Calfee( Book )

1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper presents an extensive, critical review of Eleanor Gibson and Harry Levin's "The Psychology of Reading." Treating the book as an attempt at comprehensive integration of the literature on the reading process, the reviewers look for a theoretical account that will bind findings together, for a critical examination of the research literature, and for an evaluation of practical consequences of the research efforts mounted over past years. After reviewing the scope of the Gibson and Levin book, the paper compares the work with its predecessors. Specific topics covered in the book are examined in detail, on an almost chapter-by-chapter basis. Concluding that other efforts to treat the psychology of reading have more nearly achieved their purposes than have Gibson and Levin, the reviewers go on to outline both what they feel we have learned about the topic and the fundamental questions remaining to be answered.

The relationship between perceptual development and the acquisition of reading skill : final report by Eleanor J Gibson( Book )

2 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The work described in this report is aimed at understanding the role of cognitive development, especially perceptual development, in the reading process and its acquisition. The papers included describe: (1) a theory of perceptual learning, (2) an investigation of the perception of morphological information, (3) the role of categorical semantic information in a visual search task, (4) an investigation of orthographic structure in a visual search task, (5) the role of both syntactic and semantic information in an experiment involving anagram solution, (6) a comparative study of auditory and visual temporal presentations of Morse-code-like patterns, and (7) the design for an investigation of perceptual ordering strategies in relation to categorization in recall. These studies shift the emphasis in reading research from decoding to realizing the syntactic and semantic information; incorporating the rule systems that differentiate reading from the rote learning; and developing economical, adaptive ways of processing the encoded message.
