An ecological approach to perceptual learning and development by Eleanor Jack Gibson( Book )

"In An Ecological Approach to Perceptual Learning and Development, experimental psychologists Eleanor J. Gibson and Anne D. Pick provide a theoretical framework for the ecological approach to understanding perceptual learning and development. Perception, in accordance with James Gibson's views, entails a reciprocal relationship between a person and his or her environment: The environment provides resources and opportunities for the person, and the person gets information from and acts on the environment. The concept of affordance is central to this idea; the person acts on what the environment affords, as it is appropriate."--Jacket

A review ... of The psychology of reading by Eleanor J. Gibson and Harry Levin by Robert C Calfee( Book )

1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper presents an extensive, critical review of Eleanor Gibson and Harry Levin's "The Psychology of Reading." Treating the book as an attempt at comprehensive integration of the literature on the reading process, the reviewers look for a theoretical account that will bind findings together, for a critical examination of the research literature, and for an evaluation of practical consequences of the research efforts mounted over past years. After reviewing the scope of the Gibson and Levin book, the paper compares the work with its predecessors. Specific topics covered in the book are examined in detail, on an almost chapter-by-chapter basis. Concluding that other efforts to treat the psychology of reading have more nearly achieved their purposes than have Gibson and Levin, the reviewers go on to outline both what they feel we have learned about the topic and the fundamental questions remaining to be answered.

The Ecological Optics of Infancy: The Differentiation of InvariantsGiven by Optical Motion by Eleanor Jack Gibson( Book )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper deals with research on the development of infants' ability to perceive invariant features of things and the relation of objects to both the spatial layout of the infants' environment and to themselves. Basic assumptions regarding the perception of invariance are discussed and a theoretical view of the role of motion in the development of invariance perception is described. Two types of continuous change from which infants can extract information about invariance are identified: (1) transformations in which the perspective of solid objects changes indicating object rigidity and (2) deformations in which the shape of objects changes, indicating object elasticity. Three experiments are described in which the information extracted by infants from these two types of changes was examined. Subjects in these experiments ranged in age from 3- to 5-months of age and a habituation-dishabituation paradigm was employed. Results of these experiments were interpreted as showing that infants at 3 months are capable of picking up two kinds of invariant properties within an event: (1) information specifying shape of an object while the object is in continuous and even changing motion; and (2) information specifying a type of motion when the objects undergoing motion are different shapes.

A Developmental Study of Feature-Processing Strategies in LetterDiscrimination by Eleanor Jack Gibson( Book )

in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study was conducted to determine whether people can change their perceptual processing strategies to include tests for the presence of only those stimulus features necessary for the task at hand. Learning during practice and the effect of age on the ability to use optimal strategies were investigated. A disjunctive reaction time procedure was employed. Roman capital letters were divided into positive and negative sets, and there were 135 trials for each of three conditions. The performance of second and sixth graders was compared with the performance of college sophomores. Reaction time and errors were recorded. A mixed analysis of covariance was run for grade, condition, and practice as factors. Results indicate that perceptual learning did occur and that motor skills did improve, although differential rate of improvement was not accounted for. Figures are included. (Mc)
Perceptual Learning in Educational Situations by Eleanor Jack Gibson( Book )

1 edition published in 1966 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Both cognitively-oriented and response-oriented theories of perceptual learning are discussed and contrasted with a stimulus-oriented theory. Perceptual learning is defined as an increase in specificity of discrimination of the stimulus input. The author described what is learned in perceputal learning as () the distinctive features of things, (2) invariants of events over time, and (3) higher order structures of both things and events. What is learned was said to be selected because it provides a "reduction of uncertainty." Four principles that are important in the application of the author's view of perceptual learning to education were stated--(1) tasks can be analyzed into units of perceptual content which form hierarchies, (2) lower order units are distinguished by distinctive features, (3) higher order units are distinguished by structure, (4) the strategy of exploration and perceptual search develops with age and education. This paper was prepared for the symposium on research approaches to the learning of school subjects (university of california at berkeley, october 28-29, 1966). (al)
