Scientific contributors• Allan Paivio• Robert Gagne• Howard Gardner• Benjamin Bloom
Allan Paivio• Suggested information which is brought on both visually and verbally strengthens ones ability to recall and recognize. – Classroom integration. • With technology- using PowerPoint to facilitate a lecture. • Without technology- reading a story together as a class.
Robert Gagne• His theory states that one develops skills through a building-block principal. – Classroom integration. • With technology- using an interactive math skills building software. • Without technology- Using worksheets that begin with letter recognition and move onto word recognition.
Howard Gardner• Theory of multiple intelligences. – Classroom integration. • With technology- taking advantage of the multitude of learning applications and assessments on the Web, teachers are able to reach several different intelligences. • Without technology- using observation to observe learning and assess achievement.
Benjamin Bloom• Bloom sought a better understanding of how learning is achieved. – Classroom integration. • With technology- teachers can reach all three domains of learning by utilizing thinking skills, using a mouse, and ability to interact with computer. • Without technology- lessons using cut, copy, paste, and color integrate all domains of thinking and learning skills.
My application of the theory.• I do believe learning is a mixture of genetics, past experiences, and how information is presented. I would definitely utilize the information on different learning styles and techniques and using both technological methods and without the aide of technology hope to meet the needs of all students.
