Outsmarting IQ : the emerging science of learnable intelligence by David N Perkins( Book )

10 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in English and held by 1,063 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pychologists, educators, and others have challenged the idea of a fixed iq. This book uses recent research and earlier discoveries to argue that intelligence is not genetically set. Noting that the idea of learnable intelligence reflects the belief that intelligence can be taught, the book outlines a theory of learnable intelligence, including ways in which it can be amplified. The metaphor of "mindware" is used, which is "software for the mind"--programs individuals run in their minds to help them use data stored in memory. Part 1, "In Search of Intelligence," includes information on visible intelligence, the "fairness" of iq, multiple intelligences, and strategic intelligence. Part 2, "Learning Intelligence on Trial," includes a discussion of the "paradox" of intelligence, causes of defaults in thinking, and arguments from the standpoints of expertise and weak methods, along with a case for reflective intelligences. Part 3, "What the Mind is Made Of," uses the phrase "the right stuff" as a metaphor for the learnable intelligence theory, asking what "stuff" underlies intelligence. The discussion includes kinds of knowing, realm theory, the theory of expertise, and how experiential and reflective intelligence are related. Contains 233 references. (Bgc)

Smart schools : from training memories to educating minds by David N Perkins( Book )

19 editions published between 1992 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 951 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The past twenty years have seen breakthroughs from cognitive scientists investigating thinking and learning as well as school anthropologists probing the culture of classrooms, schools, and their community contexts; but these insights have yet to be applied to public education on a broad scale. Smart Schools shows how these findings can be effectively used within the classroom. Although there has been much debate over the state of American education today, and a variety of solutions have been offered ranging from school choice to national testing, little attention has been paid to how children actually learn to think. As Perking demonstrates, we cannot solve our education problems by simply redistributing power or by asking children to regurgitate facts on a multiple choice exam; rather we must look at the kinds of knowledge students typically acquire in school. As his own and others' research indicates, students from first grade on through college often have only the most fragile and superficial kind of knowledge even after considerable instruction in a subject. He shows where students typically make mistakes by examining the kinds of misguided strategies they use in trying to understand a topic. He also shows why traditional teaching approaches often result in the students' limited grasp of a subject. Perking then introduces an impressive array of methods that have been shown to dramatically increase a student's understanding
Making learning whole : how seven principles of teaching can transform education by David N Perkins( Book )

12 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 832 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Making learning whole, David Perkins, a noted authority on teaching and learning and co-director of Harvard's Project Zero, introduces a practical and research-based framework for teaching. He describes how teaching any subject at any level can be made more effective if students are introduced to the "whole game," rather than isolated pieces of a discipline. Perkins explains how learning academic subjects should be approached like learning baseball or any game, and he demonstrates this with seven principles for making learning whole: from making the game worth playing (emphasizing the importance of motivation to sustained learning), to working on the hard parts (the importance of thoughtful practice), to learning how to learn (developing self-managed learners)

Software goes to school : teaching for understanding with new technologies by David N Perkins( Book )

14 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 483 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Software Goes to School brings together leading experts to offer an in-depth examination of how computer technology can play an invaluable part in educational efforts through its unique capacities to support the development of students' understanding of difficult concepts. Focusing on three broad themes - the nature of understanding, the potential of technology in the classroom, and the transformation of educational theory into practice - the contributors discuss a wealth of subjects central to any efforts that intend to improve our schools. Topics range from the difficulties students encounter when learning new ideas (especially in science and mathematics), to how the right software allows for hands-on manipulation of abstract concepts, to the social realities of the educational environment

Smart schools : better thinking and learning for every child by David N Perkins( Book )

8 editions published between 1992 and 1995 in English and Swedish and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Perkins reveals the common misguided strategies students use and offers teachers and parents advice on how they can help their children. Although there has been a great deal of impassioned debate over the sad state of American education today, surprisingly little attention has been paid to how children actually learn to think. But, as David Perkins demonstrates, we cannot solve our problems in this area simply by redistributing power or by asking children to regurgitate facts on a multiple choice exam. Rather we must ask what kinds of knowledge students typically acquire in school. In Smart Schools, Perkins draws on over twenty years of research to reveal the common misguided strategies students use in trying to understand a topic, and then shows teachers and parents what strategies they can use with children to increase real understanding

King Arthur's round table : how collaborative conversations create smart organizations by David N Perkins( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In King Arthur's Round Table, renowned Harvard professor David Perkins uses the metaphor of the Round Table to uncover the importance of effective collaboration and communication in today's intelligent organizations. Traditional steep hierarchies and departmental silos are insufficient for dealing with the complexities of modern business, since leaders must rely on the input and expertise of those around them. Like Arthur, today's successful business and government leaders understand that communication and collaboration must be fostered and that the decision-making process must be opened to anyone who can offer insight and wisdom."

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How to teach big understandings and the ideas that matter most. Everyone has an opinion about education, and teachers face pressures from Common Core content standards, high-stakes testing, and countless other directions. But how do we know what today's learners will really need to know in the future? Future Wise: Educating Our Children for a Changing World is a toolkit for approaching that question with new insight. There is no one answer to the question of what's worth teaching, but with the tools in this book, you'll be one step closer to constructing a curriculum that prepares students for whatever situations they might face in the future. K-12 teachers and administrators play a crucial role in building a thriving society. David Perkins, founding member and co-director of Project Zero at Harvard's Graduate School of Education, argues that curriculum is one of the most important elements of making students ready for the world of tomorrow. In Future Wise, you'll learn concepts, curriculum criteria, and techniques for prioritizing content so you can guide students toward the big understandings that matter. Understand how learners use knowledge in life after graduation Learn strategies for teaching critical thinking and addressing big questions Identify top priorities when it comes to disciplines and content areas Gain curriculum design skills that make the most of learning across the years of education Future Wise presents a brand new framework for thinking about education. Curriculum can be one of the hardest things for teachers and administrators to change, but David Perkins shows that only by reimagining what we teach can we lead students down the road to functional knowledge. Future Wise is the practical guidebook you need to embark on this important quest"--
