Book description

Learning sciences is an interdisciplinary field that studies teaching and learning. The sciences of learning include cognitive science, educational psychology, computer science, anthropology, sociology, neuroscience, and other fields. The Cambridge Handbook of the Learning Sciences, first published in 2006, shows how educators can use the learning sciences to design more effective learning environments - including school classrooms and also informal settings such as science centers or after-school clubs, on-line distance learning, and computer-based tutoring software. The chapters in this handbook each describe exciting new classroom environments, based on the latest science about how children learn. CHLS is a true handbook in that readers can use it to design the schools of the future - schools that will prepare graduates to participate in a global society that is increasingly based on knowledge and innovation.

Reviews

"The introduction is an excellent, albeit fairly sophisticated, overview of the key features of the field of learning sciences [...] The book's chapters elaborate on many of the themes broached in the introduction. Throughout, there is also criticism of instructionism and behaviorism, their focus on narrow facts and disconnected knowledge, and their inherent limitations in the development of expertise and deep learning."
-- American Reference Books Annual
