How people learn : brain, mind, experience, and school by John Bransford( )

66 editions published between 1900 and 2004 in 4 languages and held by 6,827 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When do infants begin to learn? How do experts learn and how is this different from nonexperts? What can teachers and schools do - with curricula, classroom settings, and teaching methods - to help children learn most effectively? This book offers exciting new research about the mind, the brain, and the processes of learning that provides answers to these and other question. New information from many branches of science as significantly added to our understanding of what it means to know, from the neural processes that occur during learning to the influence of culture of what people see and absorb. How People Learn examines these finding and their implication for what we teach, how we teach it, and how we assess what our children - and adults - learn. Newly expanded to show how theories and insights can translate into actions and practice, How People Learn makes a real connection between classroom activities and learning behavior

How people learn : bridging research and practice by National Research Council (U.S.)( )

21 editions published between 1999 and 2009 in English and German and held by 2,502 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report asks how the insights from the research reviewed in the National Research Council's "How People Learn" (1999) can be incorporated into classroom practice. The report also suggests a research and development agenda that would inform and stimulate the required change. Following an introductory chapter that frames the agenda of the report, chapter 2 summarizes some of the key findings from "How People Learn" and outlines implications of those findings for teaching and for designing classroom environments. "How People Learn" is a large report; this document focuses on the findings and messages that are most relevant to classroom practice. Chapter 3 summarizes responses from educators and policymakers that were offered at a conference and workshop that discussed "How People Learn." More specific suggestions made by conference and workshop participants are incorporated into chapter 4, in which the workshop committee presents its recommendations for a research and development agenda. The agenda is organized around: (1) educational materials; (2) preservice and inservice education; (3) public policy; and (4) public opinion and the media. Appendixes list meeting participants with their biographical sketches. (Contains 58 references.) (Sld)

"Based on rapid advances in what is known about how people learn and how to teach effectively, this book examines the core concepts and central pedagogies that should be at the heart of any teacher education program. Stemming from the results of a commission sponsored by the National Academy of Education, Preparing Teachers for a Changing World recommends the creation of an informed teacher education curriculum with the common elements that represent state-of-the-art standards for the profession." "Written for teacher educators in both traditional and alternative programs, university and school system leaders, teachers, staff development professionals, researchers, and educational policymakers, the book addresses the key foundational knowledge for teaching and discusses how to implement that knowledge within the classroom."--Jacket

The role of research in educational improvement by John D., Ed Bransford( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Critics within and outside the field of education often point out the absence of a strong reciprocal connection between research and practice in education. The emergence of standards-based reform and the passage of NCLB have generated increasing pressure for evidence-based decision making at all levels. Yet there is little clarity about how research results are actually used in education, or what kinds of evidence are most useful to practitioners and policymakers. In this book, leading scholars in the field examine the culture, incentives, and opportunities that shape the decision-making practices of educational professionals (teachers, administrators, and policymakers) as well as individuals, intermediary organizations, and private sector groups who engage in and disseminate research. The authors explore the multiple ways in which research - or the lack of it - influences the quality of instruction, both directly and indirectly. They identify strategies for making research and development a more vital and relevant part of educational decision making and provide suggestions for strengthening the research-to-practice pipeline. Part description and part prescription, the book maps out avenues for important changes in education research, policy, and practice. -- from back cover

The IDEAL workplace : strategies for improving learning, problem solving, and creativity( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This manual, which is based on extensive research on cognitive psychology and organizational theory, contains resources for nine workshop sessions designed to help people become creative problem solvers in their workplace and their lives. The materials are based on Bransford and Stein's ideal model, according to which successful problem solving entails the following actions: Identify problems that others may have overlooked; Develop at least two sets of contrasting goals for any problem and define them explicitly; Explore strategies and continually evaluate those strategies' relevance to their goals; Anticipate the effects of strategies before acting on them; and examine the effects of their efforts and Learn from them. Topics addressed in the nine modules are as follows: the importance of problem solving; the ideal framework; understanding ourselves; enhancing creativity; perfecting the art of learning (this topic is covered in two sessions); assessing what we know; effective communication; and putting it all together. After a note to trainers that explains the principles of the ideal model and the trainer's role in helping master problem-solving strategies, the following materials are provided: module overviews and lesson plans; exercises for grammar, vocabulary, writing, and math; student handouts; pretests and posttests, and answer keys to all exercises and tests.

Leading for instructional improvement : how successful leaders develop teaching and learning expertise by Stephen L Fink( )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is little agreement among school leaders on what constitutes quality teaching and how best to support teachers in improving lessons, assessments, and classroom instruction. This book will show how principals and other school leaders can "grow" the expertise of teachers to deliver high quality instruction that serves all students well. It introduces principals to a five-part model of effective instruction. It then shows leaders how to make use of this framework for guiding new and veteran teachers on improving lessons, instruction, and other aspects of classroom practices. This book is divided into four parts: (1) Making the Case for Instructional Expertise; (2) Developing an Expert Instructional Eye; (3) Leading for Instructional Improvement; and (4) Embracing New Opportunities for Leading and Learning. Appended are: (1) 5d Framework; and (2) Types of Classroom Observations. References and an index are also included. [Foreword by Stephen Fink, Anneke Markholt and John Bransford. This book was written with Michael A. Copland and Joanna Michelson.]

Problem-Based Case Learning : making learning real with educators, businesses, and students in partnership by Jim Johnson( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Problem-Based Case Learning (PBCL) is a learning process that begins with a problem presented by a business partner in cooperation with the instructor. High school and/or college students work in teams to focus on that problem as part of their normal classroom assignments. Students work on problems, which have never been solved, but would be beneficial to the business if they were solved. Students must integrate all academic skills while solving the problem by communicating with the business partner, identifying factors affecting the problem's solution, cooperating with team members to formulate a potential solution and then communicating that solution verbally and in writing back to the business partner. The successful process can be applied to all technology based courses as well as academic areas such as math and science.-- Publisher description
