Adult learning and relationships by Paris Strom( )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The initial aspect of social transformation is that expectations for new kinds of learning are expressed well before the attitudes and skills needed to implement them become common. The purpose of this book is to implement them become common. The purpose of this book is to identify some emerging challenges and describe ways to meet them by making changes in the content and processes of education for young adults (ages 20 to 40), people of middle age (ages 40 to 60), and older adults (age 60+). The following questions are discussed to motivate reflection, describe options, and encourage collective action. How can more students complete the education required for career preparation? How can diverse age groups in the workplace improve their relationships? How can creative thinking and teamwork be fostered to increase productivity? How can adolescents be respected as important sources of learning for adults? How can parents teach attitudes and skills for Internet learning and networking? How can a longer lifespan affect the roles and relationships of families? How can people learn to manage the setbacks and losses that are part of life? How can older adults be motivated to learn and provided relevant classes? How can attention and concentration be sustained in distracted environments? Several audiences can benefit from the text. College faculty and students studying adult development will discover insights about learning priorities at successive ages. Counselors will better understand their clients who represent the full age range of adults. Social service providers who arrange for family assistance will find out how family relationships should change over time. Nurses and administrators of assisted care facilities will recognize new ways to help residents retain mental abilities and build social networks. The reading public will be ale to understand how to improve the quality of life for relatives, friends, coworkers and themselves. -- from back cover

Thinking in childhood and adolescence by Paris Strom( )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 729 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Until recently educators were expected to provide all the knowledge students would need to ensure their future. However, the Internet has altered conditions of learning in ways that motivate students to be more self-directed and less dependent on direct instruction. Neuroscience discoveries about brain functioning also urge schools to adopt thinking as an aspect of core curriculum. Students who acquire thinking skills needed to locate information, process and organize data, generate creative and practical ideas, communicate with all age groups, and collaborate can adapt to technology change and social evolution.

Learning throughout life : an intergenerational perspective by Robert D Strom( Book )

9 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The dangers of age segregation and the benefits of age integration are examined. Each generation should be recognized as an essential source for learning. Harmony will increasingly depend on general awareness of how other age groups interpret events, respect for values that guide their behavior, responsiveness to their needs and concerns, consideration of their criticisms and solutions, and acknowledgement of their contributions. This book describes: (a) personality assets and mental abilities to focus learning at each stage of development; (b) obstacles to anticipate and overcome; (c) a rationale to make reciprocal learning common; (d) research findings which identify generational learning needs; and (e) benefits of providing lifelong education. Six stages are explored: infancy and early childhood (birth-age 6); middle and later childhood (ages 6-10); adolescence (ages 10-20); early adulthood (ages 20-40); middle adulthood (ages 40-60); and older adulthood (age 60+). Some outcomes of lifelong learning include self-control, patience, integrity, resilience, persistence, problem solving ability, acceptance of criticism, and generativity. The intended audiences for this book are professionals working with individuals and families. --
