Format: Paperback
I use this book as an introduction to learning theory for a masters class in educational computing technology. Many of my students have never had a learning theory class and this affords them an excellent overview of the subject area. In addition to well-written, concise overviews of many of the more popular theories, the authors provide exercises designed to stimulate classroom instruction. An excellent choice!

Format: Paperback
I looked for many years for this exact book. I use it in my Alexander Technique Teacher Training Class to help people understand how different people might learn. It sparks many wonderful discussions and gives good explanations. It is a great choice for any class in education or people interested in educational theory.

ery good coverage of competing perspectives on learning, and very wise recommendations for not adopting a perspective as if it were the only truth. Easy to read, practical for frequent consulting. An excellent introduction for teachers and non Psychology students.
