Psychological Foundations of Educational Technology.
Trow, Wm. Clark, Ed.; Haddan, Eugene E., Ed.
This book of readings in educational psychology for teachers contains selections which are both historical and technological. More emphasis is placed on general information and direct educational applications than on theoretical and experimental education psychology, and some of the articles have been abridged. Topics covered include teacher preparation, instructinal systems, scholastic aptitude, school achievement, developmental psychology, sensation, perception, association, and conditioning. Sections on psychomotor skills, behavior modification, concept formation, motivation, personality, emotional adjustment, mental health, creativity and critical thinking are followed by sections on school applications, environmental control, programed instruction, and patterns of interactions. A bibliography of additional readings concludes the book. (CH)
