Learning Theories Simplified: ...and how to apply them to teaching by Bob Bates
Are you struggling to get your head around John Dewey's educational pragmatism? What exactly is Jean Piaget saying about cognitive development? Maybe you're running out of time and patience making sense of Carol Dweck's mindsets? Have you reached breaking point reading Daniel T. Willingham on educational neuroscience?
Written for busy teachers, trainers, managers and students, this 'dip-in, dip-out' guide makes theories of learning accessible and practical. It explores 130 classic and contemporary learning theorists in an easy-to-use, bite-sized format with clear relevant illustrations on how each theory will benefit teaching and learning.
Each model or theory is explained in less than 350 words, followed by a 'how to use it' section.
What's new to this edition:
- A new early childhood theorists section
- A new communication theories section
- Additional 'on trend' theorists throughout
- New 'critical view' features added to each entry.
