Today I'm going to talk about the 3 domains in learning which are the Cognitive (learning) Psychomotor (skills) and Affective (attitudes) the harmony of these 3 domains are essential to the learning performance of a student. And today I'm also going to discuss few of the different learning difficulties of the students in these 3 areas. Cognitive (learning/Comprehension) This style of learning is a powerful alternative to the traditional classroom approach. Instead of focusing on memorization, cognitive learning builds on past knowledge. but there are some hindrance to this type of learning that can affect the students performance these are: Dyscalculia - A specific learning disability that affects a person’s ability to understand numbers and learn math facts. Dyslexia - A specific learning disability that affects reading and related language-based processing skills. Memory - Three types of memory are important to learning. Working memory, short-term memory and long-term memory are used in the processing of both verbal and non-verbal information. Psychomotor (physical/body movement) domain includes physical movement, coordination, and use of the motor-skill areas. it is all about the physical aspect of the learner but also there are some stances where in the learner having problem these are: Dyspraxia - A disorder that is characterized by difficulty in muscle control, which causes problems with movement and coordination, language and speech, and can affect learning. ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) - It is a medical condition. A person with ADHD has differences in brain development and brain activity that affect attention, the ability to sit still, and self-control. Dysgraphia - Learning disabilities in writing can involve the physical act of writing or the mental activity of comprehending and synthesizing information. Affective (Behavior) involves our feelings, emotions, and attitudes. This domain includes the manner in which we deal with things emotionally, such as feelings, values, appreciation, enthusiasms, motivations, and attitudes. at some point the cognitive and effective domain do have some contradiction at some point in learning, students think and learn with their brains are more on the comprehension side and student who use empathy, values and attitude are more on the effective side. Aggressive behavior - A serious problem and is disruptive to a supportive and safe learning environment. Physical aggression can be violent, even between young students, and both pupils might get hurt. Inattentive Students - tend to fall behind their classmates unless appropriate steps are taken. In certain cases, students may suffer from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, which causes them to have difficulty controlling their behavior. the importance of knowing where we are lacking or our problem in understanding is good so that we know on what keeps us on the underline, the 3 domains are important to achieve meaningful learning and also to retain information. We can learn mental skills, develop our attitudes and acquire new physical skills as we perform the activities of our daily living. These domains of learning can be categorized as cognitive domain (knowledge), psychomotor domain (skills) and affective domain (attitudes). Many teachers approach learning from different approaches. But having a healthy knowledge of how Bloom's Taxonomy of Learning defines and expands on the learning domain approach is important for today's teacher.
