Can Social Goals Enrich Our Understanding Of Students' Motivational Goals?, Ronnel King, Dennis McInerney, David Watkins 2009 The University of Hong Kong

Can Social Goals Enrich Our Understanding Of Students' Motivational Goals?, Ronnel King, Dennis Mcinerney, David Watkins

Ronnel B King

Achievement goal theory has emerged as a dominant paradigm for understanding student motivation. However, its focus on mastery and performance goals as central constructs has led to a neglect of the role of social goals in motivating students. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate the effects of different kinds of social goals (social affiliation and social concern goals) on various types of educational outcomes. Results indicate that even after controlling for the effects of the oft-examined mastery and performance goals, social goals were still able to predict additional variance in the outcomes of interest. Social concern goals ...


The Biology Of Reality Testing - Implications For Cognitive Education, Neil Greenberg 2009 University of Tennessee - Knoxville

The Biology Of Reality Testing - Implications For Cognitive Education, Neil Greenberg

Neil Greenberg

• This report explores the proposition that teaching effectiveness can be enhanced by accommodating the key differences between two complementary and deeply engrained modes of reality testing, each predominantly centered in different hemispheres of the brain. • (1) Correspondence involves “reality-testing” of a percept, the cerebral representation of an experience in the world. • (2) Coherence involves “textualizing”, that is, reality-testing of a percept by how easily it relates to previous and ongoing parallel and collateral experiences. • Confidence in the validity of any percept throughout development is related to the interplay of these key processes. • As organisms develop, the “reference base” of previous ...

A Review Study On Spiritual Intelligence, Adolescence And Spiritual Intelligence, Factors That May Contribute To Individual Differences In Spiritual Intelligence And The Related Theories, Siti Aishah Hassan Ph.D.

Siti Aishah Hassan Ph.D.

This study reviewed the articles about adolescence, its relation to spiritual intelligence and the related theories. The adolescence period is the best time to develop positive emotions and training skills, because adolescents are seeking to find their identity and their future personality at this period. Approach: Spiritual intelligence had a significant influence on the quality of life and it goes without saying that adolescence is a sensitive period which requires specific training to make a brighter future and be exposed to the difficulties. Spirituality can be viewed as a form of intelligence because it predicts functioning and adaptation and offers ...

What Do Students Feel In School And How Do We Measure Them?: Examining The Psychometric Properties Of The S-Aeq-F., Ronnel B. King 2009 The University of Hong Kong

What Do Students Feel In School And How Do We Measure Them?: Examining The Psychometric Properties Of The S-Aeq-F., Ronnel B. King

Ronnel B King

The objective of this study was to examine the reliability and construct validity of the Short Version of the Academic Emotions Questionnaire for Filipinos (S-AEQ-F) which is an adaptation of the Academic Emotions Questionnaire (AEQ; Pekrun, Goetz, & Perry, 2005). The S-AEQ-F measures eight discrete academic emotions in the learning context: anger, anxiety, boredom, enjoyment, hope, hopelessness, pride, and shame. Filipino high school students (N = 1,121) completed the S-AEQ-F. Responses to this questionnaire were shown to have good internal structure and support was affirmed for its construct validity in terms of its factorial structure and correlations with other educational outcomes ...


Constructivism + Embodied Cognition = Enactivism: Theoretical And Practical Implications For Conceptual Change, Douglas L. Holton 2009 Utah State University

Constructivism + Embodied Cognition = Enactivism: Theoretical And Practical Implications For Conceptual Change, Douglas L. Holton

Douglas Holton

The objective of this paper is to explore specific theoretical and practical implications of recent
research on embodied cognition and enactivism for the design of effective learning environments,
especially those targeting conceptual change. The ultimate goal is to illustrate how enactivism and
embodied cognition can help meet the criteria that often define scientific progress (Laudan, 1977), for
the purpose of advancing educational research and development and constructivist theory. Namely,
embodied cognition and enactivism may:
• explain specific anomalies and inconsistencies in the data from experimental research on
conceptual change and learning
• suggest bridges for theoretical divides in conceptual change research (Vosniadou ...

Reductionism, Activity Theory, And L2 Motivation Research: Toward New Concepts And Definitions, Tae-Young Kim Dr. 2009 Chung-Ang University

Reductionism, Activity Theory, And L2 Motivation Research: Toward New Concepts And Definitions, Tae-Young Kim Dr.

Dr. Tae-Young Kim (김태영, 金兌英)

This paper focuses on the theoretical foundation of second language (L2) learning motivation from a Vygotskian Activity Theory (AT) perspective. In general, previous L2 motivation research adopted either psychometric or sociological approaches, which have not fully considered the mediational process between individual learners and their meaningful environments. Since L2 motivation reflects learners’ histories and sociocultural contexts, it is crucial to approach this from an AT perspective. After critiquing current L2 motivation research using Valsiner and van der Veer’s (2000) argument of downward/upward reductionism, I introduce the notion of L2 motivation as social mediation and discuss the applicability of ...

One L Revisited: Tales From The Back Bench, Robert R.M. Verchick 2009 Loyola University New Orleans

One L Revisited: Tales From The Back Bench, Robert R.M. Verchick

Robert R.M. Verchick

My move to Harvard Law was an exciting, but sometimes frustrating transition. The law school community was large and anonymous, the famous Bauhaus dormitories (designed by Walter Gropius) part Habitrail and part shoebox factory, the eyes of campus administrators a baleful gray. I had come with a bachelor's degree in English (English!) from a west coast univer-sity that called itself “the Farm,” a campus known for fragrant eucalyptus and a pride of lion-colored hills. Harvard Law was certainly no “Farm,” and to my eye it was no “Hundred-Acre Wood” either. Whimsy? Forget it. . . .
