Description

This book aims to bring together research and theory about `New Learning', the term we use for new learning outcomes, new kinds of learning processes and new instructional methods that are both wanted by society and stressed in psychological theory in many countries at present. Some people keep asking questions about this title. Is there really a new way of learning? Are there really new learning outcomes? Is this `fad' really different from previous waves of interest for other kinds of learning, like the ones proposed by the so-called traditional school innovators such as Montessori, Dewey, Steiner and Freinet? Of course, there is a lot of resemblance between the present attention to new ways to learn and new learning outcomes and previous ones. The book describes and illustrates the differences as well as the modern versions of the traditional innovative ideas.
