en Limba Engleză Carte Paperback – 13 May 2014
How best can we help our children to learn? With education at the forefront of governmental policy, influenced by fast–changing technology and neuroscientific research, new theories and strategies for learning are constantly being presented. As teachers, parents or students of education, we risk becoming overwhelmed and unable to sift out what matters. How do we decide which strategy is best for our schools? Whose opinion can we trust? Education and Learning offers a comprehensible introduction to evidence–based research into optimal teaching methods, how we learn, and our educational system.
This book explores the different facets of education and the factors that affect learning from ability, creativity and gender to culture, metacognition, age, and technology. It synthesizes up–to–date findings in each field, presenting sound evidence and debunking myths. Each topic is clearly presented, with research examples, real–life case studies and discussion of practical implications. Accessible and timely, Education and Learning provides valuable insights, information and food for thought for parents, teachers, students, and anyone interested in the future of the next generation.

Recenzii

Overall, I share the authors underlying belief that psychology has something useful to contribute to improving education, and I applaud their efforts to demonstrate how to take an evidence–based approach to practical issues in education.   (PsycCRITIQUES, 17 November 2014)
