Learning how to learn by Joseph D Novak( Book )

58 editions published between 1984 and 2010 in 7 languages and held by 1,051 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book describes classroom-tested strategies for improving thinking, feeling and acting in students. For almost a century, educational theory and practice have been influenced by the view of behavioural psychologists that learning is synonymous with behavior change. In this book, the authors argue for the practical importance of an alternate view, that learning is synonymous with a change in the meaning of experience. They develop their theory of the conceptual nature of knowledge and describe classroom-tested strategies for helping students to construct new and more powerful meanings and to integrate thinking, feeling, and acting. In their research, they have found consistently that standard educational practices that do not lead learners to grasp the meaning of tasks usually fail to give them confidence in their abilities. It is necessary to understand why and how new information is related to what one already knows. All those concerned with the improvement of education will find something of interest in Learning How to Learn

Learning, creating, and using knowledge : concept maps as facilitative tools in schools and corporations by Joseph D Novak( Book )

28 editions published between 1998 and 2012 in English and held by 899 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The volume is organized around five factors involved in every educational event: The learner, teacher, knowledge, context, and evaluation. Each is discussed from both theoretical and pragmatic perspectives. Concept maps are used extensively to illustrate key ideas from learning theory, theory of knowledge, and instructional theory, as well as to give concrete examples. Rote learning, still common in many schools and universities today, is shown to be ineffective for achieving the goals of individuals and society in an era when creative production of new knowledge is at a premium. Throughout the volume, effective management is shown to be dependent on the same factors as effective teaching
The audio-tutorial approach to learning through independent study and integrated experiences by S. N Postlethwait( Book )

19 editions published between 1969 and 1972 in 3 languages and held by 658 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The rationale of the integrated experience approach to teaching botany at Purdue University is given and the history of the audio-tutorial course at Purdue and its present organization are described. A sample week's unit of study is given, including transcription of the tape, reproduction of printed materials and photographs of other materials used. The physical facilities used at Purdue are described with some suggestions for alternatives. A discussion of operational aspects includes guidelines for the preparation of tapes, films and other materials, as well as notes on scheduling, testing and grading. A brief account of the development of an audio-tutorial program for elementary school science is given, and applications of the method to secondary school science are suggested. Appendices include copies of orientation material distributed to students, sample record cards, instructions for staff, an account of student research projects including a sample problem write-up from a student, a discussion of problems and pitfalls, and a plan for an idealized learning center.

Teaching science for understanding : a human constructivist view by Joel J Mintzes( Book )

23 editions published between 1997 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Science education has undergone a revolution in recent years, shifting its emphasis from breadth and memorization to depth and understanding. Teaching Science for Understanding begins with an overview of the changes in science education. It then presents a review of each major instructional strategy, information about how it is best used, and the effectiveness of the strategies for understanding and retention of information. The book presents the main strategies used to achieve this depth of understanding, including the use of computer simulations, small laboratories, and journal writing, and

Illustrations and specifications of physical facilities and equipment used at purdue are also described. Practical suggestions related to the efficient use of staff, student reading assignments, grading, and the preparation of audiotutorial lessons are included. Audiotutorial instruction is compared to conventional instruction in terms of relative costs and effectiveness. (Ag)
Facilities for secondary school science teaching: evolving patterns in facilities and programs by National Science Teachers Association( Book )

8 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A future-oriented report on secondary school science facilities is presented in this book by the National Science Teachers Association to provide assistance in school design. Examplar facilities of more than 140 observed schools are analyzed in connection with the social influences on science education and the evolving patterns in technology, instructional programs, and student-staff relations. Detailed descriptions are made in terms of instructional space, construction requirements, and management of instructional materials. The trend toward flexibility is emphasized in dealing with aspects of acoustics, internal walls, visual considerations, room furnishings, student groupings, utilities, and safety. Individual learner's needs are described as a major criterion, and consultations with architects are taken into account. The findings are summarized into: 1) Location of science facilities, 2) Alternative arrangement of facilities, 3) Laboratory furnishings, 4) Supply logistics, 5) Technological support, 6) Human environment, and 7) Community resource utilization. Besides illustrations, an annotated bibliography, a nomination form, and tables of environmental criteria are included in the appendices. The work of the Study Team was financially supported by the National Science Foundation. (Cc)

Assessing student learning in light of how students learn by Dennis R Ridley( Book )

4 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The questions of purposes and methods as related to assessment of student learning are considered. It is difficult to find assessment invoked without a parallel call for improvement, particularly improved teaching and learning. Also, much attention has focused on problematic dimensions of measuring what students learn, but the fundamental set of questions about the match between purposes and methods tends to get bypassed. Six sections focus on the following: a rationale for the approach taken here and the problem that prompts it; principles of assessment grounded in a view of how students learn; a theory of learning, set forth not as the final word but as a possible framework for "theory-driven" assessment; three assessment techniques that follow from that theory (the structured interview, concept mapping, and Gowin's Epistemological Vee); an evaluation of the three techniques in light of experience of their use and other considerations; and a revisitation of the thesis (where it has gone, and where it will go next). Positive steps for the assessment movement include (1) encouraging faculty to talk to each other about meaningful learning and (2) developing a greater and more diverse array of methods. Contains 27 references. (Sm)
