Knowledge as Process: Contextually Cued Attention and Early Word Learning

Cognitive Science 34 (7):1287-1314 (2010)
Abstract
Learning depends on attention. The processes that cue attention in the moment dynamically integrate learned regularities and immediate contextual cues. This paper reviews the extensive literature on cued attention and attentional learning in the adult literature and proposes that these fundamental processes are likely significant mechanisms of change in cognitive development. The value of this idea is illustrated using phenomena in children's novel word learning
