Beyond Cognitive Abilities: An Integrative Model of Learning-Related Personal Competencies and Aptitude Trait Complexes

For centuries educational psychologists have highlighted the importance of "non-cognitive" variables in school learning.  Below readers will find a PPT presentation that presents a "big picture" overview of how cognitive abilities and non-cognitive factors can be integrated into an over-arching conceptual framework.  The presentation also illustrates how the big picture framework can be used to conceptualize a number of contemporary "buzz word" initiatives related to building 21st century educationally important skills (social-emotional learning, critical thinking, creativity, complex problem solving, etc.)

The two preliminary images can be enlarged by click on them.
