Some questions/issues to consider while discussing the reading by Langer.
Cognitive Science Introduction
Powerpoint introducing the various flavors of cognitive perspectives on learning.
Activity + Lunch
Today's internet search topic is information processing.
The assignment for this section is to develop a concept map. The group
and task assignment is as follows:
All the computers in the lab should have Inspiration. Those using their own machines can download a trial version by going to the Inspiration web site. Spend some time discussing how drawing a concept map with a piece of software constrains or liberates you to think about these issues. Does technology help or hinder what you are trying to achieve? Is it easier to construct a concept map with pencil and paper?
Finally export your concept map(s) from inspiration as a JPEG file and save this file (these files) on to your group page (web page if you have one, or blackboard if you do not).
This project is due on Monday.
