Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

“This is an excellent textbook about the psychology of learning and memory in instructional settings.”
Robert G. Winningham, Western Oregon University

“The scenarios and reflective questions and activities assist in gaining a deeper understanding and knowledge base of the material.”
Dr. Ernescia M. Torbert Richardson, Cleveland State University

“Driscoll's text provides a solid survey of the prominent theories and concepts of human learning and instruction.”
Ronald A. Beghetto, Indiana University

The Third Edition of this popular text focuses on the applications and implications of learning theories. Using excellent examples ranging from primary school instruction to corporate training, this text combines the latest thinking and research to give students the opportunity to explore individual theories as viewed by the experts. Students are encouraged to apply “reflective practice,” which is designed to foster a critical and reflective mode of thinking and orientation to application when considering any particular approach to learning and instruction.

New To This Edition

  • Includes new graphics and concrete examples to help students grasp complex concepts and learn how they can be applied.
  • Provides a theory matrix at the close of each chapter to capture the key components of each theory and permit easy comparisons.
  • A single case scenario is included and discussed in each chapter to illustrate similarities and differences in what theories reveal and explain about learning.
  • Updated references, including new research and literature on motivation, constructivism, situaed learning, and self-regulation.

Format: Hardcover
Just finishing my masters in secondary education, this is the book I find myself using as a reference most often. Just about everything is here in regards to the psychology of education from the elementry stuff like Behaviorism through a hoard of theorists like Piaget, Asubel, Brunner, etc. etc. etc. The contrast presented at the end of the book between Gagne and the constructivists makes the book feel particularly relevant.
Who knows, maybe it is just that so many of the other books for teachers seem lackluster (am I the only one who didn't find Wong particularly useful???), but Driscoll's book is one of the best reference books for teachers I've come across so far.
And yeah, I don't think it was meant as a 'reference' book per se, but this will definitely point you in the right direction and while it is certainly readible, I found it stood out most for me as a stepping stone to the literature.

I had the pleasure of being an online graduate student at Florida State University where Dr. Driscoll was teaching. Having Dr. Driscoll as an instructor, using her own book as a textbook for the course, was an invaluable experience for me. Anyone who needs a deeper understanding of cognitive learning theories need not look any further than this book. The logical formatting and presentation, the examples and explanations of theory from a variety of sources, makes this book a true gem, and one I still refer to, years after attending Dr. Driscoll's course.

Marcy's book was the text for a course I attended, and it was packed with useful information. Her writing style is clear and organized into meaningful content areas. I found her examples to be practical and they easily conveyed the essence of the context. In general, the book exemplified the principles discussed in the materials by being student-centered.

This author exemplifies the instruction methodologies she writes about in the Psychology of Learning for Instruction. As a graduate student using this as a textbook this semester, I have found it to be invaluable. I only wish that I had more time to mine the depths of her references and Reflective Questions and Activities at the end of each chapter!

This text provides a very comprehensive coverage of the theories of learning for instruction. I gained tremendous insight of the various theories from behaviorism to constructivism. I particularly appreciated the application of the various theories to the story of "Kermit and the Keyboard" throughout the text. Definitely resourceful if you are coming to educational psychology for the first time or revisiting it.

This book was required for a graduate class. Be warned this is a very dense textbook. I consider myself a skilled reader with a good vocabulary, but I found myself rereading many sections of this book. It was difficult, and at times confusing, to derive meaning. It is well researched, but I needed other sources to supplement it. The Book arrived a day ahead of schedule, and was in very good condition.

I read this book for a course in a masters program and found it to be very relevant to the course material as well as my own classroom. The text is clearly organized and is easy to read and understand.
