Socially Guided Learning
Learning by human tutelage leverages from structure provided through interpersonal interaction. For instance, teachers direct the learners’ attention, structures their experiences, supports their learning attempts, and regulates the complexity and difficulty of information for them. The teacher maintains a mental model of the learner’s state (e.g. what is understood so far, what remains confusing or unknown) in order to appropriately structure the learning task with timely feedback and guidance. Meanwhile, the learner aids the instructor by expressing his or her current understanding through demonstration and using a rich variety of communicative acts such as facial expressions, gestures, shared attention, and dialog.
