This unit explores important concepts and theories that deepen understanding of school-aged young people in ways which are important for the teaching encounter and for creating effective learning environments. The unit aims to give insight into commonality and diversity in human development and approaches to learning. It will examine the way in which the learning and development journey of all children and adolescents is mediated through socio-cultural constructs, and the implications of this insight for teaching in schools. It will explore school learning as an active process of meaning making. The unit will introduce a variety of ways in which human beings can learn. It will also look at difference forms of learning - physical, perceptual, rote memorising, narrative, analytical, metacognitive. Student teacher's experiences in school settings will be used to provide a base for the concepts and theories of learning introduced in this unit.
Task 1: Small research study on an educational issue that is analysed through concepts relevant to socio-cultural understandings of children and adolescents (50%)
Task 2: Analysis of aspects of the developmental learning theories explored in the unit as these operate in classroom settings (50%)
