La Junta Directiva de la SEPEX

Dear all,

We have the pleasure to announce the next CBC Seminar on

FRIDAY,  MARCH 11, 2022, at 12:00 PM CET, room 24.009

Azzurra Ruggeri

from the  Max Planck Institute for Human Development, Berlin and the Central European University, Wien

invited by Luca Lorenzo Bonatti

will give a talk entitled  

 The emergence and developmental trajectory of active and ecological learning

Abstract: This talk will introduce the Ecological Learning framework, which focuses on children’s ability to adapt and tailor their active learning strategies to the particular structure and characteristics of a learning environment. In particular, I will present the results of several seminal studies indicating that efficient, adaptive search strategies emerge around 3 years of age, much earlier than previously assumed. This work highlights the importance of developing age-appropriate paradigms that capture children’s early competence to gain a more comprehensive and fair picture of their active learning abilities. Also, it offers a process-oriented theoretical framework that can accommodate and reconcile a sparse but growing body of work documenting children’s active and adaptive learning. 

Two articles that you may want to read in preparation of the talk are here:
