Editorial Reviews

Review

This infinitely practical work tackles a topic most educators avoid. It is my hope that with Kipp's guidance, teachers and principals will begin to rethink long-held policies that have kept legitimate tools for learning out of the hands of today's students. --William Ferriter, Sixth-Grade Teacher and Author

Mobile Learning Devices is well-written, easy to ready, and contains a perfect combination of theory, research, and practice. If you are an educator moving into the world of MLDs, this book provides the information you ll need. And if you are already there, it will help you to improve and enhance your program --Tammy Worcester, Instructional Technology Specialist, Educational Services and Staff Development Association of Central Kansas

As a principal I have personally experienced apprehension when it came to integrating mobile learning devices in school. Kipp Rogers does an exceptional job of alleviating many of the common fears that principals have in regard to MLDs and presents practical integration strategies. --Eric Sheninger, Principal, New Milford High School, New Milford, New Jersey

If you are a teacher, better reading this book.
Ruben Delgado
In addition, a references list is included at the end of each chapter, providing the reader with the information needed to consult other resources if desired.
Jenna Settle
Well written, readable for the non-specialist, but also worthwhile for those with background in these topics.

Overview:
I chose to read Mind, Brain, and Education: Neuroscience Implications for the Classroom, by David Sousa, as part of a project in my Introductory Neuroscience class. I was hoping to find out more about how the brain handles mathematics and calculations, and was not disappointed. This book is a well-organized compilation of expert reviews of current neuroscience research that covers a variety of topic areas. What sets this book apart from others is the analysis of how neuroscience can influence a classroom of the future. Each expert gives his or her opinion on how neuroscience could lead to better instruction and classroom dynamics in the specific topic being discussed.

Synopsis of parts:
Mind, Brain, and Education starts out in the first few chapters by giving a thorough background of educational neuroscience. The history of educational neuroscience is first discussed, from the very first attempts of connecting the brain to implications for the classroom to where we are today in the field. This section of the book is very personal, with the author detailing his role and observations about how educational neuroscience came to be about. The neuroimaging techniques that led to the evolution of education neuroscience are also discussed, with each technique being explained in detail.

It is not until chapter four that the book really delves into how the brain handles different processes involved in learning. The topics covered include: Emotion and skilled intuition in learning, the speaking brain, the reading brain, the mathematical brain, the calculating brain, the computing brain, and the creative-artistic brain.

This is the perfect book for those interested in Mind, Brain and Education (MBE)and how research on the mind and brain can influence and support current research on learning by connecting the MBE research to past and present educational theories in the areas of literacy (both oral and written output language issues) and numeracy (early childhood development and higher order critical thinking skills. I found the chapters that most influenced me were those on numeracy and early development of readers. It is an excellent book for those just starting on the MBE track or those that are already well versed.

This book was practical and shows clearly that many of approaches that are now considered to be best practices in education are firmly founded in the latest neuroscientific understandings. Very useful support for doing what is right in schools

I really liked this book, several experts write about the status of scientific knowledge in areas related to education such as maths, reading, etc. There is no hype, just what it is known and authors give hints to use that knowledge. If you are looking for recipes, this is not the book.

this book should be required reading of every educator and researcher into the importance of neuroscience in education. Based a lot of my Master's Thesis on the findings in this collection and the proof it provides that the arts are the LAST thing that should be cut in a curriculum. Absolutely a fantastic book! Highly recommend!
