This book summarizes the research into how humans learn, encompassing cognitive, neurological, cultural, and educational points of view. It explores the scientific approaches to the improvement of teaching and learning. This expanded edition also includes a section showing how the theories and insights from the original book can translate into actions and classroom practice.
Topics include how people obtain, store, and recall information, neural processes essential to learning, brain development, how understanding can be maximized through best practice instruction. Commissioned by the National Academy of Sciences, this book focuses specifically on learning research relating to formal instructional environments: preschools, kindergarten through high schools (K-12), and colleges.
