  • 3. 

    Constructivism is effectively ‘child-centred development’.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Constructivism is a learning theory that emphasizes the active role of the learner in constructing their own understanding and knowledge. It suggests that learners should be actively engaged in the learning process and that learning should be based on their prior knowledge and experiences. This approach is often associated with child-centred development because it focuses on the individual needs and interests of the learner, allowing them to explore and discover concepts at their own pace. Therefore, the statement that constructivism is effectively "child-centred development" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    The zone of proximal development is based on the idea of ______ the skills and abilities that can be obtained by the child on his or her own, with those that can be achieved with support from someone else who is more skilled.

    • A.

      Developing

    • B.

      Comparing

    • C.

      Identifying

    Correct Answer
    B. Comparing
    Explanation
    The zone of proximal development is based on the idea of comparing the skills and abilities that can be obtained by the child on his or her own, with those that can be achieved with support from someone else who is more skilled. This concept suggests that learning and development occur when a child is able to bridge the gap between their current abilities and the potential abilities they can reach with guidance and assistance from a more knowledgeable other. By comparing what they can do independently with what they can achieve with help, children can identify areas for growth and work towards reaching their full potential.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Jean Piaget maintained that when children learn new things, that information is adapted by the child so that it reflects and fits with things they already know. He said that this was achieved through the processes of either:-   (Select Two)

    • A.

      Assimilation

    • B.

      Acquisition

    • C.

      Accommodation

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Assimilation
    C. Accommodation
    Explanation
    Jean Piaget believed that children learn new information by assimilating it into their existing knowledge and accommodating it to fit with what they already know. Assimilation refers to the process of incorporating new information into existing mental schemas or frameworks, while accommodation involves modifying existing schemas to accommodate new information. These two processes work together to help children make sense of the world and adapt their understanding as they learn and grow.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Reducing isolation and improving social development are not important aspects of education, particularly for children with SEN because these are minor issues that can obstruct a child’s ability to adapt to the outside world at a later stage.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that reducing isolation and improving social development are not important aspects of education for children with SEN because they can hinder their ability to adapt to the outside world later on. However, this is not true. In fact, reducing isolation and improving social development are crucial aspects of education for children with SEN.

This involvement can also lead to better communication between parents and teachers, allowing for a more holistic approach to education. Ultimately, when parents are actively engaged, students are more likely to succeed academically, leading to progress both within and outside the school environment.

Additionally, for learners with special educational needs, individualized support and accommodations may be necessary to accurately assess their progress. Therefore, the statement that assessment is the only way to monitor educational progress is false.
