3 Things I learnt: 1)The teriarchic Reciprocal has dynamic influences that include personal, environmental, and behavioral. It made sense that these three factor are considered for social cognitive views of learning and motivation. 2) Social persuasion can be assort of “pep talk” that can boost self efficiency through feedback. Teachers feedback can lead students to feel either more confident, or more discouraged and this will adjust their goals according to their experience. 3) When processing information retention is the key to learning. Retention can be improved by mental rehearsal, or by actual practice. Which makes sense why they say practice makes perfection.
2 Connections I made: The idea of scaffolding concepts while learning can help develop understanding. It reminded of my Stat 160 class because I feel like I am missing the fundamental basics to answer most questions. Almost as if I should have pervious knowledge, that I do not have. I can see why this idea of scaffolding could come in handy for helping students learn and develop in certain subjects that build on each other.
Self talk once again was brought up in our readings this week and I can relate from when I was a child to an adult. There is a difference when child speak to themselves it is usually helps them find confidence in learning, while I find it useful during studying to keep my mind focused on the task at hand.
1 Question I still have: If creating a positive environment to promote education is important for children at risk of failing. How do we provide the time to create those positive relation for those children who need it the most?
