Learning theories for teachers
Learning Theories for Teachers provides a comprehensive, yet manageable, overview of current major educational psychological theories and issues and analyzes the implications for the teaching process. Adopting the idea that "there are no final answers to questions concerning school learning", this book encourages teachers to develop their own learning theories and test them in terms of classroom reactions, structure, and the adequacy of supporting evidence. The sixth Edition features a new chapter on computer education and use of the Internet as a source of data.
