Tuesday 15th March

Padraic MonaghanDate/Time: March 15, 10am-11am (Session 1)

Presenter(s): Padraic Monaghan, LuCiD

Title: How children learn words and how we can support the early stages of language acquisition

Thank you to all who attended this presentation - the recording and slides are now available on our recordings page.

Abstract: In learning language, children face multiple challenges in acquiring their language - from identifying words in speech, to learning what words mean, to learning the grammatical structure of language. Each of these tasks is extremely difficult, but there are lots of sources of information in children's environments to help in learning. I will review what we have discovered about how children use these sources and provide some examples of how this helps us to better promote language learning in young children.

 

 

 

Peter EntwistleDate/Time: March 15, 1.30am-2.30am (Session 2)

Thank you to all who attended this presentation - the recording and slides are now available on our recordings page.

Abstract: This webinar will review the research on Working Memory (WM) and the subject of Language. We will begin with a description of the term Working Memory, and explore how to understand the role of Short Term Memory, and Long Term Memory. We will explore the research by Baddeley, and Dehn on WM and the academic implications of WM deficits.

We will consider the importance of phonological processing in reading and language acquisition and the role of WM. We will look at the work of Holmes with English Language Learners. We will also look at research on new word learning and 2nd language learning in an attempt to show how important Working Memory is in learning and problem solving.
