Helping Shy Students All teachers have had shy students in their classroom.

Cognitive Constructivism Cognitivist teaching methods aim to assist students in assimilating new information to existing knowledge, and enabling them to make the appropriate modifications to their existing intellectual framework to accommodate that information. BackgroundView of KnowledgeView of LearningView of MotivationImplications for TeachingJean PiagetWilliam G. PerryReferences Background Confirmation bias in science: how to avoid it One of the most common arguments against a scientific finding is confirmation bias: the scientist or scientists only look for data that confirms a desired conclusion.

As you may guess from such a list, deliberate use of confirmation bias is held in low esteem by scientists, and allowing confirmation bias to get the better of your results is regarded as a particularly sad form of incompetence.
Constructivism (common misunderstandings) Summary: Constructivism as a paradigm or worldview posits that learning is an active, constructive process. The learner is an information constructor.

Kirschner and Anna Bosman say: “We could and should know better by now.”
