Optimal Learning in Schools--Theoretical Evidence: Part 3 Individual Differences
Crossland, John
School Science Review, v98 n364 p85-91 Mar 2017
Parts 1 and 2 in this four-part series of articles (Crossland, 2016, 2017) discussed the recent research from neuroscience linked to concepts from cognitive development that brought Piaget's theories into the 21st century and showed the most effective provision towards more optimal learning strategies. Then the discussion moved onto Demetriou's latest thinking that explored the relationship between the developing mind and the developing brain. Part 3 outlines individual differences in learners with further implications for classroom practice leading to additional characteristics of optimal learning in the classroom.
