Integrative Education. ERIC Digest, Number 101.
A growing number of education reformers are justifying their reform strategies by pointing to the findings of developmental brain research, theories of information processing, and the needs dictated by today's information-rich world. They advocate integrative education, which places students in a holistic context. This digest describes the principles of integrative education and research outcomes on its effectiveness. As yet, findings on the effectiveness of integrative education are inconclusive. The forms of implementation and administrative support for integrative education are also described. (Contains eight references.) (LMI)
