PSY6802 EDUCATIONAL PSYCHOLOGY Week 2 – Assignment 1: Personalize Meaningful Learning Experiences Highlighting Cognitive and Language Development
For this assignment, create a blog post that highlights cognitive and language development. In addition, focus on customizing meaningful learning experiences for different educational settings. For example, select a specific subject, then model meaningful learning experiences for an elementary class and then a high school class.
In your blog entry, be sure to address the following:
Provide insights from at least two classic theorists of cognitive development (i.e., Jean Piaget and Lev Vygotsky) on what they offer about how to assess and potentially foster children’s or adolescent’s cognitive growth.
Explain the language capabilities you could expect in students at different grade levels.
Discuss strategies to help bloggers accommodate diversity in their students’ cognitive and language development, while customizing meaningful learning experiences for different educational settings.
In addition to creating your own blog, submit a copy of your blog along with the link to your blog, as with all other written assignments.
Length of blog: 4-6 pages, not including title and reference pages. Support your blog with a minimum of three scholarly sources.
Your blog must be effectively designed and must meet the following criteria:
Locates a website that your professor can easily access. It is suggested that you use a free website such as http://www.wordpress.com/.
Contains text that is readable (e.g., appropriate size of font, type of font, contrasts with background, contains sufficient white space).
Includes information within the blog that supports the assignment.
Ensures all the links are active and work.
Contains at least one graphic.
Contains the same template throughout with a consistent design.
Your blog should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts presented in the course by providing new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic. Your submission should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards where appropriate. Be sure to adhere to Northcentral University’s Academic Integrity Policy.
