The "Handbook on Innovations in Learning" focuses on innovations--both methodological and technological--in teaching and learning that promise to surpass standard practice in achieving learning outcomes for students. The experts who have written chapters in this Handbook first identify the underlying principles of learning and then describe novel, balanced approaches, based on these principles, to accelerate learning. The chapters in this Handbook consider best practice from the perspective of topics emerging as priorities in education. Each of the authors presents a concise review of the literature on the topic of the chapter, an explanation of what the topic means in relation to education, and, suggests action principles for states, districts, and schools. The Handbook is structured into four parts. Part 1: Innovation in Learning, presents the following: (1) What Is an Innovation in Learning? (Sam Redding, Janet S. Twyman, and Marilyn Murphy). (2) Stimulating Innovation (or Making Innovation Meaningful Again) (Maureen M. Mirabito and T. V. Joe Layng); (3) Innovation, Implementation Science, and Data-Based Decision Making: Components of Successful Reform (Ronnie Detrich); and (4) The Logic of School Improvement, Turnaround, and Innovation (Sam Redding). Part 2: The Student in Learning Innovation, contains: (1) Innovative Practice in Teaching the English Language Arts: Building Bridges Between Literacy In School and Out (Michael W. Smith); (2) Innovations in Language and Literacy Instruction (Michael L. Kamil); (3) Specialized Innovations for Students with Disabilities (Joseph R. Boyle); and (4) Getting Personal: The Promise of Personalized Learning (Sam Redding). Part 3, Technology in Learning Innovation, contains: (1) Education + Technology + Innovation = Learning? (T. V. Joe Layng and Janet S. Twyman); (2) Games in Learning, Design, and Motivation (Catherine C. Schifter); (3) Advances in Online Learning (Herbert J. Walberg and Janet S. Twyman); and (4) Learning, Schooling, and Data Analytics (Ryan S. J. d. Baker). Part 4, Reports From the Field: Innovation in Practice, includes: (1) Idaho Leads: Applying Learning In and Out of the Classroom to Systems Reform (Lisa Kinnaman); (2) Using Response to Intervention Data to Advance Learning Outcomes (Amanda M. VanDerHeyden); and (3) Innovation in Career and Technical Education Methodology (Mark Williams). A glossary (Robert Sullivan) is included. Individual chapters contain references.
