Benchmark - Adolescent Cognitive and Social DevelopmentPareshia GipsonCollege of Education, Grand Canyon UniversitySEC-506 Early Adolescent and Adolescent PsychologyDr. Melissa Cloyd3/30/22.
How could people believe that every student has similar learning styles just because theyare in the same grade? Some students have a lower cognitive level than the rest which takes thema little longer to grasp the instruction that the teacher is trying to deliver; this brings me to myfirst topic; Cognition is not only just learning instruction, but it also has the ability to think andgrasp new information and be able to speak about the instruction as well. Cognitive developmentis defined as the way students think or how they figure things out. Cognitive development canalso impact students' learning by not allowing students to understand the relationships betweenideas, grasp the process of cause and effect as well as improve their analytical skills.Cognitive and Social DevelopmentCognitive and social development can affect learning in many different ways. Providing akind environment helps to encourage optimal brain development and social connection andcollaboration(Goleman,1996). This means social development could affect learning by shapingchildren developing neural circuitry, particularly executive functions (Goleman,1996). Socialdevelopment can also affect the way students learn because very shy students would most likelycontribute less to a class discussion; or may seem less talkative.Cognitive development can affect learning because cognitive development contributes tohow children think and explore things in life. Typically, it is the development of numerousdifferent things like problem-solving, the development of knowledge, and the development ofskills. Cognitive skills also promote long-term learning and help students connect ancientknowledge with more up-to-date material; in other words, cognitive skills help students mergeboth old and new information and apply both effectively (Indeed, 2021).
Individuality, identity development, and personal behavior affect learning differences anddevelopment in numerous different ways. Identity differs throughout students in terms of culturaland historical circumstances in which students are submerged. Students who have strongerconfidence in themselves are usually the students who will become more successful throughoutlife. Having clarity of their identity helps them handle issues faster and more efficiently.However, individuals that struggle with clearly identifying themselves are likely to behavedifferently; and have an influence on their learning experience; they are most likely to engage ininappropriate behavior, indulge in new activities, and more likely to experience distress. Theidentity that is associated with the discipline of learning affects students' views about themselvesand affects others' view's about them (Alhawsawi, 2015).
