"Babies and young children are like the R&D division of the human species," says psychologist Alison Gopnik. Her research explores the sophisticated intelligence-gathering and decision-making that babies are really doing when they play.

MIT researcher Deb Roy wanted to understand how his infant son learned language -- so he wired up his house with videocameras to catch every moment (with exceptions) of his son's life, then parsed 90,000 hours of home video to watch "gaaaa" slowly turn into "water." Astonishing, data-rich research with deep implications for how we learn. Deb Roy studies how children learn language, and designs machines that learn to communicate in human-like ways. On sabbatical from MIT Media Lab, he's working with the AI company Bluefin Labs. A quiz, thought provoking question, and links for further study are provided to create a lesson around the 20-minute video. Educators may use the platform to easily "Flip" or create their own lesson for use with their students of any age or level.

This is a series of presentations and activities that are designed to introduce students to Cognitive Development. I have had success doing one of these every now and then as part of a history class. Also, I have taught units on Child Development and Education where I used them all within the context of the same unit. I like the spreading of these lessons throughtout the year in a high school setting, where students can sort of see it as a continuing series of interesting topics that break up the normal flow of learning.
For this lesson, you will be sharing the content in the powerpoint presentation entitled Parental Readiness. Once the information has been presented, you will then give the students 2 assignment options. Option 1: Interview two groups of parents. 1 couple who has small children and 1 couple who has children that are teenagers or out of the home. Option 2: Create a presentation highlighting each student's priorities on parenting. This presentation is titled "The type of Parent I Hope to be."This Lesson Aligns with Utah State Standards for Child Development: Strand 1, Standard 1
Over the years researchers have found the necessity to develop theories of behavior that are specific to family settings. These theories have been developed by people with a variety of areas of emphasis, from family therapists to gerontologists to child development specialists. In this chapter we will briefly discuss six such theories: Bioecological Model, Family Systems, Functionalism, Conflict Theory, Symbolic Interactionism, and Psychological Perspectives.
