Cognitive learning processes
Learning starts as soon as a child is born.Once the child starts walking their expectations of a whole new world will astound them and make them want to explore everything that is around them. Cognitive learning has three perspectives that enable the brain to mold itself. Behaviorism,social cognitive theory, and cognitive psychology. When learn a new idea or problem when we associate it with something else that we understood. A teacher can inspire her students by adding new material and use methods used in her class earlier that helped students to learn it. Ask questions such as How do you relate to this problem or how would you solve it? A teacher can also use visual aids and student interaction to retain the material learned. What cognitive processes seem to hamper students learning at an early age?
