Title: Early%20Childhood%20Studies

Early Childhood Studies
  • Intellectual (Cognitive) Development

What is Intellectual development?
  • A mental process which we acquire knowledge.
  • Intellectual development involves a child's
    thinking. Children learn to think by undertaking
    challenging tasks. Reasoning their way through
    different tasks helps children learn.
  • Now
  • Lets discuss how you as a individual gain
  • List out all types of learning process you and
    your fellow peers adopt to learn about something
    (5 mins activity).

Some ways of acquiring knowledge is by.
  • Thinking and reasoning ability
  • Abilities in language and reading
  • Memory or route learning
  • Innate intelligence
  • How do you think children learn?

Children Learning Process
  • When a child is born, he/she comes with a brain
    ready and eager to learn.
  • The brain is very much like a new computer. It
    has great potential for development, depending on
    what we put into it.
  • Early experiences greatly influence the way a
    person develops. Everyone who works with children
    has an awesome responsibility for the future of
    those children.
  • No need to copy this down!

  • The activities you do with them from birth to age
    10 will determine how their learning patterns
  • As children interact with their environment, they
    learn problem solving skills, critical thinking
    skills, and language skills.
  • Alice and George are painting. Each of them has
    a jar of blue paint and a jar of yellow paint.
    Suddenly George yells, "Look, Alice, I made
    green!" "How did you do it?" asks Alice. "I put
    yellow paint on top of my blue paint - yellow and
    blue put together make green!" yells George.
    Other children gather around to watch and ask for
    a turn.
  • An example of discovery learning or hands-on

Activate your thinking cap!!
  • You want to learn how to play softball so that
    you can join a team. How will you learn to play?
  • Will you
  • 1. Buy a book and read about how to play
  • 2. Watch a video about softball.
  • 3. Ask a friend who plays to grab a ball, bat,
    and glove and teach you.
  • AnswerWhich way will help you learn the game the
    best? Choice 3 is the best way for most people
    because they actually get to try the game and
    learn the rules as they play.

Styles of children learning process
