The Psychology of Learning: Theory and Applications for Educators.
Thompson, Mark E.
This paper examines some basic principles of learning theory that have been developed within the discipline of psychology. A brief resume of the psychologist's efforts to analyze the phenomenon of learning within a scientific setting is presented as well as attempts to apply this research to a practical situation (e.g. the classroom). More specifically, connections between the theory of learning and applications within an educational setting are introduced. This report is limited because the literature on learning theory with numerous sophisticated intricate theories and counter theories is much too complex and technical for a detailed analysis. Only the most significant theories of learning are discussed in terms of their contribution to the educational environment. (Author)
