The Epigenesis of mind : essays on biology and cognition by Susan Carey( Book )

12 editions published between 1991 and 2014 in English and held by 430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reflecting the focus of a Jean Piaget Symposium entitled Biology and Knowledge: Structural Constraints on Development, this volume presents many of the emergent themes discussed. Among these themes are:Structural constraints on cognitive development and learning come in many shapes and forms and involve appeal to more than one level of analysis. To postulate innate knowledge is not to deny that humans can acquire new concepts. It is unlikely that there is only one learning mechanism, even if one prefers to work with general as opposed to domain-spe
Perceptual and cognitive development by Rochel Gelman( Book )

20 editions published between 1996 and 2007 in English and held by 414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Perceptual and Cognitive Development illustrates how the developmental approach yields fundamental contributions to our understanding of perception and cognition as a whole. The book discusses how to relate developmental, comparative, and neurological considerations to early learning and development, and it presents fundamental problems in cognition and language, such as the acquisition of a coherent, organized, and shared understanding of concepts and language. Discussions of learning, memory, attention, and problem solving are embedded within specific accounts of the neurological status of developing minds and the nature of knowledge. Key Features * Research advances and theoretical reorientations are updated in the Second Edition; the revision focuses more attention on the cognitive and biological sciences and neuroscience * Illustrates how the developmental approach can yield fundamental contributions to our understanding of perception and cognition as a whole * Discussions of learning, memory, and attention permeate individual chapters

Mathematical and scientific knowledge : an overview by Lauren B Resnick( Book )

4 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most of the research on mathematical and scientific thinking has been concerned with uncovering knowledge structures and reasoning processes in people of different levels of competence. How these structures and processes are acquired has only recently become a major concern. Thus, some of the major research on mathematical and scientific thinking is reviewed, giving particular attention to work that sheds light on the processes of learning and development. Three areas of research are addressed: (1) the role of organizing schemata or structures in scientific and mathematical thinking; (2) the spontaneous construction or application of theories (considering investigations involving simple addition and subtraction); and (3) implicit understanding expressed as the invention of procedures. The research examined indicates that the kinds of schemata people have made differences in their methods and levels of success in problem-solving. In addition, the schemata of experts may either be refinement of the schemata of novices in the same domain, or the schemata between novices and experts may be in direct conflict. Other research suggests that attention should be addressed to the processes learners use to construct spontaneous theories. These theories, because they are often "wrong," must be constructed by the learners themselves. (Jn)

Conceptual competence and children's counting by James G Greeno( Book )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A framework is presented for characterizing competence for cognitive tasks, with a detailed hypothesis about competence for counting by typical 5-year-old children. It is proposed that competence has three main components that are called conceptual, procedural, and utilizational competence. Conceptual competence, which is discussed in greatest detail, is the implicit understanding of general principles of the domain. Procedural competence is understanding of general principles of action and takes the form of planning heuristics. Utilizational competence is understanding of relations between features of a task setting and requirements of performance. A characterization of conceptual competence for counting is presented, in the form of action schemata that constitute understanding of counting principles such as cardinality, one-to-one correspondence, and order. This hypothesis about competence is connected explicitly to a detailed analysis of performance in counting tasks. The connection is provided by derivations of planning nets for procedures that are included in process models that simulate children's performance. It is concluded that the nature of young children's understanding reflects competence that supports the understanding of counting as well as later development, such as explicit understanding of the role of one-to-one correspondence in definitions of equivalence.
