1. Concrete Operational Stage of Child Development: Piaget's Logical Principles
As children age, they begin to understand the world in new ways. In this lesson, we'll look at Piaget's concrete operational stage of development and cognitive gains made during that time, including classification, seriation, and transitivity.
2. Understanding Change in Middle Childhood: Reversibility & Reciprocity
As children grow and learn, they begin to understand the world in more and more complex ways. In this lesson, we'll examine cognitive developments made in middle childhood, including the concepts of reversibility and reciprocity.
3. Attention, Memory, and Meta-Cognition Development in Middle Childhood
As kids grow and age, their intellectual (or cognitive) skills develop as well. Watch this lesson to find out more about cognitive development in childhood, including the relationship between attention and memory, and the skill of meta-cognition.
4. Child Creativity and Intelligence
What is an IQ score? What do these scores mean? What role does creativity play in a child's development? Explore these concepts with this lesson and test your knowledge with a quiz at the end.
5. What is Gardner's Theory of Multiple Intelligences?
Which types of intelligence do you identify with? As you watch this video on Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences, you'll learn that intelligence can be a diverse concept not limited to one area.
6. Sternberg's Triarchic Theory of Intelligence
This lesson will help you understand the triarchic theory and the three types of intelligence proposed by Robert Sternberg: analytical, creative, and practical.
7. Learning Disabilities: How to Identify Children with a Learning Disability
Identifying children with a learning disability can be tricky because it can be confused with a lack of interest in a school subject. In this lesson, we will look at how learning disabilities can be identified and the three most common learning disabilities: dyscalculia, dysgraphia and dyslexia.
8. Learning Disorders and Disabilities: Definition, Causes, Treatment and Diagnosis
Why do some students struggle to learn? What types of learning disabilities affect students? In this lesson, we'll look closely at three common learning disorders: dyslexia, dysgraphia, and dyscalculia.
9. Advanced Cognitive Development and Renzulli's Triad
In this lesson, we will explore advanced cognitive development in terms of a gifted child. We will also define what it means to be gifted and Joseph Renzulli's model of giftedness.
10. Intrinsic and Extrinsic Motivation in Education: Definition & Examples
Intrinsic and extrinsic are the two types of motivation. Learn more about intrinsic and extrinsic motivation from definitions and examples, then test your knowledge with a quiz.
11. Anxiety Disorders in Children: Symptoms & Causes
Anxiety disorders are common in all age groups, but they can have a very serious effect on children in various stages of development. Through this lesson, you will learn what defines an anxiety disorder and explore some of the symptoms that manifest in young people.
