How People Learn

Brain, Mind, Experience, and School: Expanded Edition

First released in the Spring of 1999, How People Learn has been expanded to show how the theories and insights from the original book can translate into actions and practice, now making a real connection between classroom activities and learning behavior. This edition includes far-reaching suggestions for research that could increase the impact that classroom teaching has on actual learning. Like the original edition, this book offers exciting new research about the mind and the brain that provides answers to a number of compelling questions. When do infants begin to learn? How do experts learn and how is this different from non-experts? What can teachers and schools do-with curricula, classroom settings, and teaching methods--to help children learn most effectively? New evidence from many branches of science has significantly added to our understanding of what it means to know, from the neural processes that occur during learning to the influence of culture on what people see and absorb. How People Learn examines these findings and their implications for what we teach, how we teach it, and how we assess what our children learn. The book uses exemplary teaching to illustrate how approaches based on what we now know result in in-depth learning. This new knowledge calls into question concepts and practices firmly entrenched in our current education system. Topics include: How learning actually changes the physical structure of the brain. How existing knowledge affects what people notice and how they learn. What the thought processes of experts tell us about how to teach. The amazing learning potential of infants. The relationship of classroom learning and everyday settings of community and workplace. Learning needs and opportunities for teachers. A realistic look at the role of technology in education.

Workplace Communications

The Basics, MLA Update

For courses in Professional Communication and Workplace Writing. This version of The Curious Writer has been updated to reflect the 8th Edition of the MLA Handbook (April 2016)* After teaching a course to college students pursuing trade careers, George Searles realized his students needed a book that focused on practical applications, rather than theory--and that explored workplace communication in a user-friendly tone. Workplace Communications: The Basics takes a down-to-earth approach to writing and communicating on the job, teaching the essentials in an accessible style appropriate for any student or course. The clear, concise nature of the book meets the needs of not only its originally intended audience, but the needs of students taking technical communication at a wide range of institutions for any major as well. The Seventh Edition retains and enhances the text's pedagogical aids, rich examples, and practical exercises, preparing students to communicate successfully in any workplace environment. * The 8th Edition introduces sweeping changes to the philosophy and details of MLA works cited entries. Responding to the "increasing mobility of texts," MLA now encourages writers to focus on the process of crafting the citation, beginning with the same questions for any source. These changes, then, align with current best practices in the teaching of writing which privilege inquiry and critical thinking over rote recall and rule-following.

The Common European Framework of Reference

The Globalisation of Language Education Policy

Author: Prof. Michael Byram,Lynne Parmenter

Publisher: Multilingual Matters

ISBN: 1847697321

Category: Education

Page: 296

View: 2238

The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages was published a decade ago and has been influential ever since, not only in its European 'home' but throughout the world. This book traces the processes of the influence by inviting authors from universities and ministries in 11 countries to describe and explain what happened in their case. There are everyday factors of curriculum development – which sometimes include coincidence and happenstance – and there are also traditions of resistance or acceptance of external influences in policy-making. Such factors have always existed in bilateral borrowing from one country to another but the CEFR is a supra-national document accessible through globalised communication. The book is thus not only focused on matters of language education but is also a Comparative Education case-study of policy borrowing under new conditions.
