Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"How People Learn" examines these findings and their implications for what we teach, how we teach it, and how we assess what our children learn. The book uses exemplary teaching to illustrate how approaches based on what we now know result in in-depth learning. This new knowledge calls into question concepts and practices firmly entrenched in our current education system. The topics include: how learning actually changes the physical structure of the brain; how existing knowledge affects what people notice and how they learn; what the thought processes of experts tell us about how to teach; the amazing learning potential of infants; the relationship of classroom learning and everyday settings of community and workplace; learning needs and opportunities for teachers; and a realistic look at the role of technology in education.

Book News Annotation:

An expanded edition of a resource in which new research about the mind, the brain, and the processes of learning are applied to questions regarding curricula, classroom settings, and teaching methods. Drawing on the findings from many branches of science, the 11 chapters discuss how experts differ from novices, learning and transfer, how children learn, teachers and teaching, and future directions.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
