Perspectives on Conceptual Change presents case study excerpts illustrating the influence on and processes of students' conceptual change, and analyses of these cases from multiple theoretical frameworks. Researchers in reading education have been investigating conceptual change and the effects of students' prior knowledge on their learning for more than a decade. During this time, this research had been changing from the general and cognitive--average effects of interventions on groups of students--to the specific and personal--individuals' reactions to and conceptual change with text structures. Studies in this area have begun to focus on the social, contextual, and affective influences on conceptual change. These studies have potential to be informed by other discourses. Hence, this book shows the results of sharing data--in the form of case study excerpts--with researchers representing varying perspectives of analyses. Instances of learning are examined from cross disciplinary views. Case study authors in turn respond to the case analyses. The result is a text that provides multiple insights into understanding the learning process and the conditions that impact learning.

Frank Reinhold erarbeitet ein Modell zur inhaltlichen Gestaltung und Implementierung digitaler Lernumgebungen in der Mathematikdidaktik am Beispiel der Entwicklung des Bruchzahlbegriffs. Der Autor evaluiert eine digitale Lernumgebung in Form eines iBooks zum Einsatz auf iPads für dieses Themengebiet, die im Forschungsprojekt ALICE:Bruchrechnen entwickelt wurde. Er analysiert die Ergebnisse von 476 Schülerinnen und Schülern am Gymnasium und 245 Schülerinnen und Schülern an der Mittelschule und stellt Implikationen und Handlungsempfehlungen für den Mathematikunterricht und die mathematikdidaktische Forschung vor. Damit liefert die Arbeit einen differenzierten Blick auf die Wirkmechanismen von Tablet‐PCs in der sechsten Jahrgangsstufe und zeigt Wege auf, wie digitale Medien gewinnbringend in den Regelunterricht integriert werden können.

For decades, politicians, businessmen and other leaders have been concerned with the quality of education, including early childhood education, in the United States. While more than 50% of the children between the ages of three and five are enrolled in preschool and kindergarten programs in the United States, no state, federal, or national standards exist for science or technology education in preschool or kindergarten programs. Knowledge about science and technology is an important requirement for all in contemporary society. An increasing number of professions require the use of scientific concepts and technological skills and society as a whole depends on scientific knowledge. Scientific and technological knowledge should be a part of every individual’s education. There are many ways to enhance young children’s scientific thinking and problemsolving skills as well as their technological abilities. The purpose of this volume is to present a critical analysis of reviews of research on science and technology education in early childhood education. The first part of the volume includes contributions by leading scholars in science, while the second part includes contributions by leading scholars in technology.

Human Learning, fifth edition, is the leading text on learning theories applied to education. It covers a broad range of learning theories, including behaviorist, social cognitive, cognitive, and developmental. Complex learning and cognition, including metacognition, transfer, and social processes in knowledge construction are also covered, as is motivation. Coverage demonstrates, through the author's extremely lucid and engaging prose, how different concepts relate to one another. The book provides dozens of proven examples, and emphasizes meaningful learning that makes the fundamentals of these theories comprehensible to students with little or no prior coursework in psychology. Key revisions to this book include a thoroughly updated section on behaviorism, a new, separate chapter on the developmental theories of Piaget and Vygotsky, and a reorganized motivation section.
