Learning Theories: A to Z Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Swift changes in educational technology are transforming the landscape of our society and how we transfer knowledge in a digital world. Teachers, administrators, and education students need to stay abreast of these developments. Yet while the new educational software, technologies, and networks may be available, the learning theories and methods required to take complete advantage of the tools are often neglected.

Learning theories are a crucial element of education studies for anyone involved with students from pre-school to higher education and business training. This book is a substantive dictionary of over 500 terms relating to learning theories and environments. Definitions range from approximately 100 to 700 words, and each term is identified by the primary type of learning theory to which it applies: cognitivism, constructivism, behaviorism, humanism, or organizational learning. An annotated bibliography provides further resources to the most important writings about learning theories.

Book News Annotation:

Leonard has some 27 years of experience in education and training in both higher education and industry. He provides reference information on learning theories about K-12 education, higher education, and industry education and training environments, and educational technology settings. Five hundred-plus terms are alphabetically organized, with each entry identified as belonging to one of five learning paradigms— behaviorism, cognitivism, constructivism, humanism, and organizational—or the educational technology category. The text also includes a selected annotated bibliography of relevant books and articles (print and electronic). Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
