1 EDU PSYCHOLOGY OF THE LEARNER SEMESTER I UNIT 1 : Introduction to Educational Psychology UNIT 2 : Learners Development UNIT 3 : Learners Intelligence and creativity UNIT 4 : Understanding Learner Diversities UNIT 5 : Learners Personality And Adjustment


3 Origin or Evolution of Psychology Study of Soul Study of Mind Study of Consciousness William James and Wilhelm Wundt Introspection Science of Behaviour William mc Dougall in 1905 and J.B Watson in 1913 First psychology lost its soul, then its mind, then it lost its consciousness, it still has behaviour of a sort - Woodworth (1948)

4 Definitions of Psychology Psychology is a Science which aims to give us better understanding and control of the behaviour of the organism as a whole - William Mc Dougall (1908) Psychology is the Science of behaviour - J. B. Watson (1913)

9 Definitions Educational psychology is that branch of psychology which deals with teaching and learning - B. F. Skinner (1958) Educational psychology is the science of education - Peel (1956)

10 Relationship between Education and Psychology A teacher want to teach Latin to John, should want to know both Latin and John To know the child To know the potentialities and capacities To control the learning environment To shape the learning experience

11 Scope of Educational Psychology It concern the learner or Pupil Innate abilities or capacities Individual differences Conscious or unconscious behaviour Characteristics of growth and development

12 It concern the Learning experience Techniques Deciding the kind of learning experiences Conscious or unconscious behaviour Characteristics of growth and development Scope of Educational Psychology

13 It concern Learning process Nature of the Learning process Principles and theories of learning Remembering and forgetting Thinking and reasoning Scope of Educational Psychology

14 It concern Learning situation or environment Classroom climate Group dynamics Usage of teaching learning aids Guidance and counselling Scope of Educational Psychology

15 It concern the teacher To know himself Conflict, anger, motivation, adjustment, level of aspiration etc Personality of the teacher Scope of Educational Psychology

16 Methods of Educational Psychology 1.Experimental Method 2.Survey Method 3.Case Study Method

17 How to conduct a Case Study 1.Give due recognition and respect to his individuality 2.Establish a good rapport (connection) 3.Know his personal identity, past history, behaviour, relationship, problems, feelings etc 4.Deep investigation in a comprehensive way 5.Can use a pre prepared format for data collection 6.Collect all relevant data about the person from him and others related to him 7.Find the probable causes of his behaviour 8.Remediation and suggestions

18 Data in Case Study 1. Personal data including problems (emotional, social and education) 2. Birth information 3. Health record 4. Family data 5. Socio-economic status 6. Level of intelligence and creativity (opinion from teachers and parents)

19 Data in Case Study 7. Educational record 8. Areas of interest 9. Adjustment 10. Behaviour in the classroom 11. Personality traits 12. Educational and vocational ambitions etc 13. Follow up work

20 Merits of Case Study Can get a more detailed picture of the individual This method uses observation, interviews and tests etc for data collection Solves deep rooted problems of an individual Helps to solve personality, behavioural and adjustment problems It has a wide and comprehensive scope The study is more objective, reliable and valid

21 Demerits of Case Study Need special training and efficiency Generalisation is not possible Some times the collected data may be fake It has limited scope We cant ensure the objectivity, reliability & validity Time consuming

Explain 6.Write a short note on different approaches to psychology 7.Differentiate between Humanistic and Constructivist Approaches to education 8.Prepare short note on Experimental Method, Survey Method and Case Study Method 9.Suppose you identify a case in your class. How to conduct a case study for that case

24 10 Mark Questions 1.Explain the scope of education technology in the teaching learning process


26 Development Physical Quantitative, we can measure it accurately Simple Structural Change Not continuous, stops when attain maturity Psychological Qualitative & Quantitative measurement is difficult Complex Functional change Continuous, it continues till death Growth and Development Growth

27 Principles of Development 1.Principle of continuity 2.Rate of growth and development is not uniform 3.Principle of individual differences 4.Development proceeds from general to specific responses 5.Principle of integration 6.Principle of interrelation

28 Principles of Development 7.Development is predictable 8.Development is spiral and not linear 9.Growth and development is a joint product of both heredity and environment 10.Principle of developmental direction "cephalic-caudal as well as proximodistal"

29 Principles of Development Education Implications of the Principles of Development We must pay attention to their individual pattern and growth rate while planning the course for their education and development. The correct knowledge of the growth trend of a child helps the parents and teacher not to under or overestimate the future competency or expectancy of their child knowledge about general pattern of development guides us to locate the degree of abnormality in students and to take likewise remedial steps.

30 Principles of Development Education Implications of the Principles of Development The knowledge of the uniformity of pattern with respect to growth and development makes it possible for the parents and teachers to plan ahead of time for the changes that will take place in their children. Both heredity and environment affects growth and development, so teacher can pay sufficient attention over the environmental conditions in the up bring of the children

31 Development Approaches to study Development 1.Cross sectional study 2.Longitudinal study Cross-sectional studies Involve observation of all of a population, or a sample, at one specific point in time. In which different individuals with same characteristics are compared.

32 Development Approaches to study Development Longitudinal study It is a correlational research study that involves repeated observations of the same variables over long periods of time - often many decades. It is used to study developmental trends across the life span. Longitudinal studies track the same people, so make observing changes more accurate.

33 Stages of Development 1.Pre- Natal Period (Conception to 280 Days) 2.Infancy (From Birth to 2 Years) 3.Child Hood ( 3 Years 12 Years) 3.Child Hood ( 3 Years to 12 Years) 4.Adolescence ( 13 Years 19 Years) 4.Adolescence ( 13 Years to 19 Years) 5.Adulthood ( 20 Years to 59 Years) 6.Old Age ( 60 Years and Above)

67 SEMESTER I MODULE 3 SEMESTER I MODULE 3 Learners Intelligence and creativity


69 Ability to adapt to ones surrounding - Piaget Aggregate global capacity of an individual to act purposefully, to think rationally, and to deal effectively with his environment - Wechsler

70 Theories of Intelligence 1.Spearmans two factor theory 2.Guilfords theory of structure of intellect model 3.Howard Gardner -Multiple intelligences theory 4.Emotional intelligence

71 g Each intellectual activity involves a general factor g (is common to all mental operations) and a s specific factor s (is specific to specific activities) S1S1 S2S2 g

72 Three basic dimensions or parameters known as Contents (the terms in which we think or the type of information involved) Operation (the act of thinking or way of processing the information) Products (the ideas we come up with, i.e. the output of a thinking). Each of these parameters further subdivided into some specific factors or elements


74 1. Verbal / Linguistic Intelligence 2. Logical / Mathematical Intelligence 3. Musical Intelligence 4. Visual / Spatial Intelligence 5. Bodily / Kinesthetic Intelligence 6. Naturalistic Intelligence 7. Interpersonal Intelligence 8. Intrapersonal Intelligence 9. Existential Intelligence 10. Spiritual Intelligence 11. Moral Intelligence Howard Gardner

75 Emotional intelligence emotional intelligence was introduced in 1990 by two American University professors Dr. John Mayer and Dr. Peter Salovey Popularizing the concept of emotional intelligence goes to another American psychologist Daniel Goleman through his book Emotional Intelligence: Why it Can Matter More Than I.Q

76 Emotional intelligence "The capacity for recognizing our own feelings and those of others, for motivating ourselves, and for managing emotions well in ourselves and in our relationships". Goleman (1995) "The capacity to reason with emotion in four areas: to perceive emotion, to integrate it in thought, to understand it and to manage it. John D. Mayer and Peter Salovey (1997)

77 Components of Emotional intelligence Self –awareness (know emotions of one self and capacities) Self regulation (regulate emotions ) Motivation (reaching goals without emotional problems) Empathy (know emotions of others ) Social skills (ability to deal emotions)

78 Emotional Quotient (EQ) Relative measure of ones emotional intelligence It is the sum of the measures of five components It is a scale to measure EI Not accurate like IQ EQ is more importance than IQ

79 Importance of Emotional intelligence Emotional intelligence is needed than mere intelligence It motivating ourselves to live in groups It is a main quality of a leader A good teacher should want to know the feelings of the students and act accordingly It help the social living conflict less It help to maintain harmony in relationships EQ constitute 80% of success in our life

80 Measurement of Intelligence

81 Mental Age (MA) and Intelligence Quotient (IQ) Intelligence Quotient (IQ) This term was initiated by the German psychologist William Stem and put into wide practice by Terman. Mental Age (MA) IQ = x 100 Chronological Age (CA)

82 IQLevel of Intelligence 140 and aboveGifted or Genius Very Superior Superior Normal or Average Border Line and Dull Morons Imbeciles Below 25Idiots

83 Individual tests Individual tests One individual is tested at a time Group tests Group tests A group of individuals is tested at a time Verbal or language tests Verbal or language tests Make use of language Non verbal Non verbal involve activiti involve activities – performance tests

84 Types Vocabulary tests Memory tests Comprehension tests Information tests Reasoning tests Association tests Individual is required to use language for giving responses The test content is loaded with verbal materials Less expensive For eg. A man is than his daughter

85 Individual is not required to use language for giving responses The test items are in the form of symbols, diagrams, desigs etc For eg.Figure Analysis Figure Classification Figure Series


87 Creativity implies the production of a totally or partially' novel identity. Stagner and Karwoski, 1973 Creative thinking means that the predictions and/or inferences for the individual are new, original, ingenious, and unusual. The creative thinker is one who explores new areas and makes new observations, new predictions, new inferences. Skinner,1968

88 Universal Both inherited and acquired Production of something new Adventurous and open thinking Carries ego involvement Average intelligent may be creative Not related with school achievement

89 Sensitivity (ability to sense the environment) Fluency (it is the ability to produce ideas as many as possible) Flexibility (ability to produce variety of ideas) Originality ( ability to produce unusual ideas that others are not thought of ) Elaboration (it is the ability to go in to the details)

90 Preparation (sensing and understanding the problem) Incubation (pushing the unsolved problems in to the mind) Illumination (individual solves the problems immediately) Verification or revision (testing the ideas and solutions)

91 Methods Observation Rating by peers Questioning technique Creativity tests Characteristics High level curiosity Good memory High level of fluency Flexibility Enquiry tendency Fond of reading Imagination capacity

92 Instance (example) type (name all the round things) Unusual uses type (write all different uses of ball pens) Consequences type (think of as many consequences ) Product improvement test (think improvement) New relationship test (soap and salt) Creative writing (ask to complete the story)

93 Parallel line test (construction of figures from two parallel lines) Figure completion test (incomplete figure want to complete) Picture construction test (construct pictures from round or squares etc)

94 Give them Freedom to respond Encourage originality and flexibility Removal of hesitation and fear Using the creative resources of the community Proper organization of the curriculum Reform in evaluation system Use of special techniques Brain storming Lateral thinking Synectics

95 Brainstorming Technique for allowing a group to explore ideas without judgment or censure. Children may be asked to sit in a group for solving a problem and attacking it without any inhibition from many angles For eg. Growing unemployment in India

96 Lateral Thinking The term was coined in 1967 by Edward de Bono Lateral thinking is solving problems through an indirect and creative approach using unconventional thinking techniques normally untapped by our usual ways of thinking. Lateral Thinking training will teach you how to think creatively, turn problems into opportunities, find alternative solutions, & dramatically increase your number of new and practical ideas

97 Synectics The word Synectics derived from the Greek and means "the joining together of different and apparently irrelevant elements. Based on analogy ÌtÎßÜïÞJ ÕØñáA{áæ¿ ØÞÎc¢ (bird and a car) Synectics is a problem solving methodology that stimulates thought processes of which the subject may be unaware. This method was developed by George M. Prince and William J.J. Gordon

98 SEMESTER I MODULE 4 Understanding Learner Diversities

99 Meaning of Individual Differences No two persons are born exactly alike ; but each differs from the other in natural endowments, one being suited for one occupation and the other for the another --- Plato

100 Areas of Individual Difference Intelligence Creativity Interest Attitude Aptitude

101 Attitude how you express your likes and dislike Attitude is, in a word, how you express your likes and dislikes towards particular people, things, and occurrences. It is the mental disposition Attitude is a dispositional state of readiness to respond certain situations, persons, and ideas in a consistent manner, which has been learned and has become one typical mode of response ---- Freeman

102 Nature of Attitude It is a mental state of readiness It is an acquired tendency It is more or less permanent Attitudes ranges from strongly positive to strongly negative Measurement of Attitude Attitude Scale Linkert attitude scale Thurston's attitude scale

103 Aptitude It is a special ability distinct from general intellectual ability that help an individual to acquire proficiency in some specific field Aptitude refers to a set of abilities essential for acquiring knowledge and skill in a specific area of performance GATB (General Aptitude Test Battery) DAT (Differential Aptitude Test )

104 Attitude Mental state or readiness towards something It is a learned tendency May be general to specific May to change easily Ability on particular activity It has more innate basis Always specific Once established it is difficult to change Aptitude Difference

105 Interest It is the motivating force It pushes an individual to act towards specified goals How to create Interest among students Setting proper aims and objectives Use psychological methods for teaching Use audio visual aids Provide proper learning environment

106 Quite different and distinct from normal or average children They deviate significantly from average children They need special care and treatment They cannot be benefited from the normal classroom They need special education to develop their potential

107 Types of Exceptional Children Gifted Children Slow Learners Learning Disabled

108 Having High IQ, above 140 Whose performance is consistently remarkable in some potentially valuable activity Superior in some abilities Can make noteworthy contribution to society

109 High performance High level of curiosity Rich vocabulary High intellectual ability Ask many questions Original ideas Thirst for new knowledge Superiority complex Feeling of isolation Negative attitude towards society Always dissatisfied with the existing situation

110 Acceleration Approach Double promotion Earlier admission Enrichment Approach Separate schools Approach Navodhaya Vidyalayas Njana Prabodhini school, Pune Good Sheperd School, Ooty

111 Slow learners are those children who falls far behind from other children of the same age in educational achievement IQ 70 to 85 Below average intelligence Often appear immature Short memory Concentrate only on some aspects For them learning is a burden

112 Low performance Short span of attention Poor mental coordination Intellectual deficiency Lack of motivation Fear of failure High level of anxiety Always feels learning as a burden

113 Avoid frustrations Motivate them to learn Develop self confidence Present simple learning task Revision Peer tutoring Programmed instruction Keep progress record Special classes

114 10 % of school students have learning disability Certain kinds of disorders in the basic psychological processes of an individual Inability to understand things

115 Difficulty in language related areas Handicap in mathematical skills Exhibit hyperactivity Suffer emotional problems Demonstrate anxiety, moodiness etc Low attention power Low concentration power Low retention and thinking capacity Lack of communication power Problematic and improper pronunciation

116 Types of LD 1.Dyslexia It is a common problem in students Reading difficulty, very slow reading, missing of some words, perceive words as images etc He read ØÎÞÉÈ¢ as ØÎÞÇÞÈ¢ 2.Dysgraphia Its a writing difficulty write ambiguous words The child confused with the shapes of the words Eg. Ø Á, b d, p q The always make spelling mistakes Always missing space between words

117 Types of LD 3.Dyscalculia It is a difficulty related to mathematical operations Unable to add, subtract, multiply and divide Difficult to identify the mathematical symbols Write 69 as 96

118 4. ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyper activity Disorder) It is a behavioral problem They have difficult to maintain attention in any activity They are active and restless in most of the time They prefer activity oriented learning situation they have normal intelligence but difficult to maintain attention Types of LD

119 Provision for specialized schools or classes Provision for special remedial and educational programmes Structuring and improving the existing environmental set up Care by parents and teachers Restructure school experience considering needs and interests Specialised training


121 Social attractiveness A good person can impress others with his/her personality Personality is the sum total of ones qualities & character It is the sum total of positive and negative attributes of a person Personality ÕcµñßÄb¢

124 Personality is something unique and specific It includes everything about a person Personality is not static Personality is the product of heredity and environment Learning and experience contributes the development of ones personality

125 Approaches 1. Psycho Analytic Approach Sigmund Freud 2. Trait Approach G.B. Allport R.B. Cattel 3. Humanistic Approach Carl Rogers Abraham Maslow

126 Psycho Analytic Approach Psycho Analytical Theory Has Three Major Parts I.Theory of Personality Dynamics (levels of consciousness) II.Theory of Personality Structure III.Theory of Psycho Sexual Development Sigmund Freud

127 Conscious Mind Active mind Your present perceptions, memories, thoughts, fantasies, feelings, Preconscious Mind Available memory We can easily be made conscious Retrievable Unconscious Mind Not directly aware Repressed motives, memories and emotions Levels of Consciousness

128 The Structure of Personality 1. Id 2. Ego 3. Superego

129 The Ego Instincts & Biological Situated in unconscious mind Original System of Personality Immoral Work on pleasure principles Reservoir of Psychic Energy Human quality Situated in conscious mind Work on Reality Principle Executive of the Personality Organized Portion of Id Psychological Moral Arm of Personality Situated in pre- conscious mind Learning of Moral Values Sociological The super EgoThe Id

130 Theory of psycho-sexual development According to Freud sex is the life urge or fundamental motive in life All physical pleasure is sexual in nature Sexuality is not the only characteristic of the adult Children from the very beginning have also sexual desires it is called Infantile Sexuality A child passes through five stages of psycho sexual stages

131 Stages of Psycho Sexual Development 1. Oral stage (birth to 2 years) ÕÆÈ ¸G¢ Mouth is the erogenous zone. Infant achieves gratification by feeding, sucking, biting etc.. 2. Anal stage (2 to 3 years) Sexual pleasure is focused on the anal zone Child achieves gratification through retention & expulsion of faeces

132 3. Phallic stage (4 to 6 years) èÜ¢·ßµÞÕÏÕ ¸G¢ Pleasure is focused on the genital region by playing with them Child notes the biological differences between sex organs It give raise to many complexes Oedipus complex – Oedipus complex – sexual attraction of Boy to mother Electra complex - Electra complex - sexual attraction of Girl to father Castration complex – Castration complex – boy fear of being deprived of their sex organs because elders fear them to cut off their sex organs when playing with them

Genital stage (13 and above) èÜ¢·ßµ ¸G¢ Attraction towards the opposite sex Seek pleasure by the self stimulation of the sex organs They love themselves and opposite sex Pleasure is derived from mature sexual relations with a partner of opposite sex.

134 Life Instinct Impulse to live Aim the survival of the species Manifested through love and sex Death Instinct LIBIDO is the life maintaining energy which seek pleasure through sexual gratification If the flow blocked, may cause neurotic problems desire to die or destruction Creates conflicts and anxiety Manifested through aggression, cruelty and suicide Life instincts and death instincts decides the quality and satisfaction of a persons life

135 Trait Theories Basic unit of personality Relatively permanent and consistent general behavioral patterns that an individual exhibits in most of the situations Personality traits are real entities that physically located somewhere in the nervous system. Personality traits are real entities that physically located somewhere in the nervous system. Relatively consistent ways of thinking, acting and feeling G.B. Allport R.B. Cattel

136 Allport's theory of Personality Common Traits Common with most others in our own culture. Individual traits Unique traits According to Allport, Individual traits have three elements 1.Cardinal Traits 2.Central Traits 3.Secondary Traits

137 T Individual Traits Cardinal traits: – Dominates an individuals entire personality – Just one or two in an individual – Appears most of the time – Gandhi – Peace Central traits: – Ordinarily used to describe a person – Less pervasive Secondary traits: – Specific narrow traits, weak effect on behavior, relatively small range of situations – Less prominent, less generalized, eg. Food habits

138 Cattells Theory of Personality Personality of an individual is composed of different combinations of four types of traits He found four types of traits 1.Common Traits Trait found widely in general population Refer to characteristic shared by many people. Eg. Aggression, honesty and cooperation etc

Kindness, curiosity, dependability, tactfulness etc Easily recognized by overt manifestation of behavior 4.Source Traits Underlying structures or sources that determine the behavior Predictors of human behaviour Eg. Intelligence, dominance etc

140 According to Maslow the goal of personality development is the self actualisation Self Actualisation It is the realisation of ones basic potential to the maximum extent and use it effectively as much as possible A person achieves this through many steps It is known as the Hierarchy of Needs


142 Organism Individuals entire time of reference Represents the totality of ones experience Experience includes both conscious and unconscious Self The aware part of experience It is the understanding of ones concept of I Know self affects ones growth and development and adjustment to his environment The concept of self may differ from person to person

143 Personality It is the product of the interaction between the organism and the self of the individual Congruence and incongruence with self determines the personality He divided the self in to three 1.Real Self 2.Self Concept 3.Ideal Self There should be some congruence between these three

144 The Problem of incongruence Developing false self image or the incongruence may lead to abnormality in ones behaviour The teacher want to develop the congruence between these three selves

145 A goal towards life Good self esteem Effective communication Taking up challenges There is no fear to failure Warm relatedness to others Realistic perception of reality Unifying philosophy of life Emotional intelligence Desire to live Willingness to change Continuous learning Positive attitude Self acceptance Self objectification Self confidence Enthusiasm Empathy

146 Subjective Techniques Subjective Techniques Interview Situational tests Sociometric methods Psychodrama Self Report Inventories Minnesota Multi-phasic Personality Inventory Projective Techniques Projective Techniques Rorschach Inkblot Test Thematic Apperception Test (TAT) Word Association Test Sentence Completion Test Objective Techniques Objective Techniques Observation Rating Scale

147 Projective Techniques ÕßçfÉÃ ÄdLBZ Used in personality assessment Used to collect data which cannot be collected directly from the individual It helps to project ones inner feeling in an unconscious manner

148 Examples Projective Techniques Rorschachs Ink Blot Test Thematic Apperception Test (TAT) Childrens Apperception Test (CAT) Word Association Test (WAT) Sentence Completion Test

149 Personality Inventories Printed form consist of a set of statements or questions applying to human behaviour Close ended answers so objectiveExample 1.Cattels 16 PF inventory 2.MBTI (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator) 3.Eysenks personality Questionnaire 4.The California Psychological inventory 5.MMPI (Minnesota Multi-phasic Personality Inventory)

150 Adjustment is the process by which living organisms maintains a balance between its need and circumstances that influence the satisfaction of his life --- L.S. Shaffer

151 Physical causes Defects Diseases Psychological causes Psychosis Neurosis Emotional problems Environmental causes School / teacher Home / parents Social causes Lack of soft skills Lack of socialisation Bad friendship

152 Maladjustment is the degree of disharmony between individual and environment If it occurs the person tries to adjust the environment by using three mechanisms 1.Modifying the internal impulses 2.Try to alter the environmental demands to resolve the maladjustment 3.Escape through unconscious resources of the mental mechanisms (Defense Mechanisms)

153 Defense mechanisms are certain pattern of behaviour that are employed for protection against threat of anxiety --- Arkoff It is the temporary solution to protect from a psychological problem dÉÄßçøÞÇ ÄdLBZ Defence Mechanism dÉÄßçøÞÇ ÄdLBZ

154 1.Repression ( ÆÎÈ¢) 2.Projection (dÉçfÉâ) 3.Displacement 4.Rationalization (Ïáµñàµøâ) 6.Denial 7.Regression (ÉÖíºÞÆí·ÎÈ¢) 8.Sublimation Defence Mechanisms
