Towards an Applied Cognitive Science Perspective in Education.
Leong, Che Kan
International Journal of Disability, Development and Education, v40 n1 p63-73 1993
This paper argues for the role of an applied cognitive science perspective in education. It discusses the relevance and inadequacy of the brains metaphor and the computing metaphor, the parallel distributed processing nature of learning, and the importance of situational variables. Contributions of applied cognitive science to mathematics, composing, reading, and learning in general are outlined. (JDD)
