This highly respected, market-leading textbook on learning theories applied to education prepares pre-service teachers and other educators with a unique and meaningful learning experience. The sixth edition of Human Learning covers a broad-range of learning theories and key perspectives on learning related to education, including: behaviorist, cognitive, social cognitive, contextual, and developmental theories, always highlighting relationships between concepts. Additionally, the text details associationistic processes (e.g., classical and instrumental conditioning), and more complex and distinctly human processes (e.g. metacognition, self-regulated learning, critical thinking). Every chapter features key pedagogical concepts with specific applications to classroom practice, numerous concrete examples that illustrate key concepts, principles, and recommendations and dozens of proven examples help make the fundamentals of these theories comprehensible to students with little or no prior coursework in psychology. Significant updates to this textbook include: important updates to reflect the most current research and new theories in the field, expansion of the chapter on cognition and memory, re-organization of Piaget and Vygotsky content into two separate chapters, a core section on teaching critical thinking skills, and the discussion of technology-based instructed has been significantly revised and expanded in this edition.

Improving Human Learning in the Classroom provides a functional and realistic approach to facilitate learning through a demonstration of commonalities between the various theories of learning. Designed to assist educators in eliciting students' prior knowledge, providing feedback, transfer of knowledge, and promoting self-assessment, Taylor and MacKenney provide proven strategies for infusing various learning theories into a curriculum, guiding educators to find their own strategies for promoting learning in the classroom. Both quantitative and qualitative research methods investigate learning theories and reforms in education. Quantitative data sources build the theoretical framework for educating the student, as well as developing strategies for closing the achievement gap. Taylor and MacKenney fuse personal experiences with solid strategies for human learning.

"The study of human development, in New Zealand as elsewhere, was long dominated by the theories of the Swiss psychologist Jean Piaget. In recent years, however, Piaget's ideas have been increasingly challenged and even discredited. Piaget, it was discovered, was unable to recognise the significance of social, cultural or gender differences in development. His only way of portraying development was as a universal sequence of stages. Moreover, Piaget's account of developmental change stopped at adolescence. What are the implications of the eclipse of Piaget? How do we study human development here and now -- after Piaget? "Growing up" tackles these questions head-on. It does so in an accessible manner and in a New Zealand context. Having summarised the reasons for Piaget's decline, the contributors explore alternatives. In particular, they discuss Vygotsky and Bronfenbrenner which attempt to take account of the social cultural and historical contexts of individual development. The emphasis throughout is on the need for explanation to be localised and specific. Therefore, special attention is paid to the New Zealand context and to issues of gender, of race, and of disability. The role of research is also given critical attention, since research in general has made the same assumptions of universality of which Piaget is now accused. "Growing up" therefore introduces readers to a wide range of research methods and shows that the traditional psychology-based methods are problematic." -- Back cover.
