Unformatted text preview: TARLETON STATE UNIVERSITY AS&D 4203 Principles of Learning Introduction An understanding of the basic principles of how students learn, and how this affects the teaching process, is very important to the teacher of agri- culture. If the teacher is to be successful, an understanding and application of these principles is of major importance. The purpose of this unit is to provide training as to the learning charac- teristics of students and the principles of learning. GENERAL PERFORMANCE OBJECTIVES/GOALS l. #wN 0 o 0 Match terms associated with principles of learning with their correct definitions. List senses through which students learn. Match the percent students learn with how they learn. I Write an example of how each of the ten principles of learning can be applied to agricultural instruction. SPECIFIC PERFORMANCE OBJECTIVES-MASTERY CRITERIA 1. V2. Given a list of terms associated with the principles of learning, students will be able to match the terms with their correct defintion with at least 85% accuracy. Given a written exam, stUdents will be able to list the senses through which students learn with at least 85% accuracy. Given a list of how students learn, students will be able to match the percentage of learning that takes place with the method with at least 85% accuracy. Given a list of the ten principles of learning, students will be able to apply each principle to an agricultural instructional situation with at least 85% accuracy. SPECIFIC PERFORMANCE OBJECTIVES AND LEARNING ACTIVITIES Given a list of terms associated with the principles of learning, students will be able to match the terms with their current definition with at least 85% accuracy. TERMS AND DEFINITIONS: A. Learning - May be conceived as a "change" due to "experience" in the stu- dent's ways of thinking, feeling, and acting. (Note: The effectiveness of the learning process may be thought of in terms of (I) magnitude of the changes taking place in the individual, or (2) the proportion of the stu- dents who have changed significantly in one or more characteristics relevant to the learning process.) \\_/ 2. Evaluation - The performance, activity, behavior, or instrumentation that will be utilized as a means for the student to demonstrate his achievement of behavioral objectives. These activities may be verbal, nonverbal, manipulative, or any type of performance, provided it is appropriate for measuring the goal as stated in the performance objective. Criterion test - An evaluation instrument employed to assess the degree to which the output performance of the student meets predetermined performance objectives. Educational experience - An experience that is selected and planned by one person with a view to its impact upon the learning of another. (Note: Educational experiences may also be thought of as an interaction between the learner and the environment--teacher or other students, learning material, the subject matter--which results in some changes in the learner.) Given a written exam, students will be able to list the senses through which students learn with at least 85% accuracy. SENSES THROUGH WHICH STUDENTS LEARN: A. Touch B. Smell C. Sight D. Hearing E. Taste 3. Given a list of how students learn, students will be able to match the percentage of learning that takes place with the method with at least 25% accuracy. PERCENT STUDENTS LEARN WITH HON THEY LEARN: A. 10% of what they read. B. 20% of what they hear. C. 30% of what they see. D. 50% of what they see and hear. E. 70% of what they say as they talk. F. 90% of what they say as they do a thing. 4. Given a list of the ten principles of learning, students will be able to apply each principle to an agricultural instructional situation with at least 85% accuracy. . 167.737\ PRINCIPLES OF LEARNING hOJNl-i u o a I CLO (EN 0101 Learning is governed by the readiness of the learner. Intent to learn is necessary for purposeful learning. A person tends to believe according to how he/she perceives a situation. Goals must be clearly in mind and accepted by the learner if adequate learning is to take place. Learning varies with the individual. Learning is valuable when a person can retain and apply it to new situations. V _ Cognitive learning involves recognition and/or discovery. An individual's affective learning determines how he relates himself to new experiences. Psychomotor learning involves control of body muscular activity. The kind, the extent and the validity of evaluation affect present and sub— sequent learnings. ...
