Learning and Cognition
Gr ver Aukrust, Vibeke, Ed.
This collection of 58 articles from the recently-published third edition of the International Encyclopedia of Education focuses on learning, memory, attention, problem solving, concept formation, and language. Learning and cognition is the foundation of cognitive psychology and encompasses many topics including attention, memory, categorization, etc. Most books in the area either focus on one subtopic in-depth (e.g. an entire book on memory) or cover the gamut of subjects in a series of long, technical handbook-like chapters. This concise reference offers researchers and professors teaching in the area a new take on the material that is comprehensive in breadth, but lighter in depth--focusing on main findings, established facts, and minimizing the amount of space taken up by large, multi-volume references.
Descriptors: Memory, Concept Formation, Cognitive Psychology, Problem Solving, Language Processing, Learning Processes, Attention, Learning Theories, Cognitive Science, Neuropsychology, Computer Assisted Instruction, Epistemology, Intelligence, Metacognition, Learning Strategies, Educational Technology, Cooperative Learning, Literacy, Lifelong Learning, Adult Learning, Gender Issues, Organizational Development, Language Arts, Second Language Learning
