Multimedia learning by Richard E Mayer( Book )

43 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 1,231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For hundreds of years, verbal messages - such as lectures and printed lessons - have been the primary means of explaining ideas to learners. In Multimedia Learning, Richard Mayer explores ways of going beyond the purely verbal by combining words and pictures for effective teaching. Multimedia encyclopedias have become the latest addition to students' reference tools, and the World Wide Web is full of messages that combine words and pictures. Do these forms of presentation help learners? If so, what is the best way to design multimedia messages for optimal learning?" "Drawing on ten years of research, the author provides a cognitive theory of multimedia learning and seven principles for the design of multimedia messages. In short, this book summarizes research aimed at realizing the promise of multimedia learning - that is, the potential of using words and pictures together to promote human understanding."--Jacket

Computer games for learning : an evidence-based approach by Richard E Mayer( Book )

10 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many strong claims are made for the educational value of computer games, but there is a need for systematic examination of the research evidence that might support such claims. This book fills that need by providing a comprehensive and up-to-date investigation of what research shows about learning with computer games. Computer Games for Learning describes three genres of game research: the value-added approach, which compares the learning outcomes of students who learn with a base version of a game to those of students who learn with the base version plus an additional feature; the cognitive consequences approach, which compares learning outcomes of students who play an off-the-shelf computer game for extended periods to those of students who do not; and the media comparative approach, which compares that learning outcomes of students who learn material by playing a game to those of students who learn the same material by using conventional media. After introductory chapters that describe the rationale and goals of learning-game research as well as the relevance of cognitive science to learning with games, the book offers examples of research in all three genres conducted by the author and his colleagues at the University of California, Santa Barbara; meta-analyses of published research; and suggestions for future research in the field. The book is essential reading for researchers and students of educational games, instructional designers, learning-game developers, and anyone who wants to know what the research has to say about the educational effectiveness of computer games. -- from dust jacket

Synopsis: For students studying education or psychology, for teachers or prospective teachers, and for instructional designers or instructors. A concrete guide to the science of learning, instruction, and assessment written in a friendly tone and presented in a dynamic format. The underlying premise of Applying the Science of Learning is that educators can better help students learn if they understand the processes through which student learning takes place. In this clear and concise first edition text, educational psychology scholar Richard Mayer teaches readers how to apply the science of learning through understanding the reciprocal relationships between learning, instruction, and assessment. Utilizing the significant advances in scientific learning research over the last 25 years, this introductory text identifies the features of science of learning that are most relevant to education, explores the possible prescriptions of these findings for instructional methods, and highlights the essentials of evaluating instructional effectiveness through assessment. Applying the Science of Learning is also presented in an easy-to-read modular design and with a conversational tone - making it particularly student-friendly, whether it is being used as a supplement to a core textbook or as a standalone course textbook. Features: A concise and concentrated view of the field that covers the foundational ideas in learning, instruction, and assessment without overwhelming students or wasting words; A modular, multimedia approach organizes course material into two-page units with specific objectives, helpful graphics, and a welcoming design that helps readers organize and understand each concept; An emphasis on clear writing and concrete ideas makes learning easier for readers, especially by providing vocabulary definitions and specific examples; A personal and friendly tone instead of a formal, academic style make this book easier and more enjoyable to read.

Learning as a generative activity : eight learning strategies that promote understanding by Logan Fiorella( Book )

9 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the past twenty-five years, researchers have made impressive advances in pinpointing effective learning strategies (i.e., activities the learner engages in during learning that are intended to improve learning). In [this book], Logan Fiorella and Richard E. Mayer share eight evidence-based learning strategies that promote understanding : summarizing, mapping, drawing, imagining, self-testing, self-explaining, teaching, and enacting. Each chapter describes and exemplifies a learning strategy, examines the underlying cognitive theory, evaluates strategy effectiveness by analyzing the latest research, pinpoints boundary conditions, and explores practical implications and future directions. Each learning strategy targets generative learning, in which learners actively make sense of the material so they can apply their learning to new situations. This concise, accessible introduction to learning strategies is intended to benefti students, researchers, and practitioners in educational psychology, as well as general readers interested in the important twenty-first-century skill of regulating one's own learning"--Provided by publisher
How not to be a terrible school board member : lessons for school administrators and board members by Richard E Mayer( Book )

6 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How to Not Be a Terrible School Board Member is a practical guide both for how to become an effective school board member, and for how school administrators can improve their board relations. The intended audience is prospective, present, and past school board members and school administrators. While the overwhelming majority of school board members have good motives, even people with good motives can make bad moves, even terrible moves. This book is dedicated to preventing situations in which good intentions can lead to bad outcomes. The book takes a case based approach that focuses on terrible school board member moves as the fastest and most memorable way to help one learn how to be an effective school board member, and to see, by contrast, how a successful school board member operates. Case-based learning is used in many professional programs such as business, law, medicine, and even teacher education, and research on learning by example has a strong and growing empirical research base"--Provided by publisher
