  2. Learning That Sticks: A Brain-Based Model for K–12 Instructional Design and Delivery

    In many classrooms, the emphasis is on instructional strategies that teachers employ rather than on what students should be doing or thinking about as part of their learning. What’s more, students’ minds are something of a mysterious ‘black box’ for most teachers, so when learning breaks down, they’re not sure what went wrong or what to do differently. It doesn’t have to be this way. Learning that sticks helps you look inside that black box. Bryan Goodwin and his coauthors unpack the cognitive science underlying research-supported learning strategies so you can sequence them into experiences that challenge, inspire and engage your students. As a result, you’ll learn to teach with more intentionality - understanding not just what to do but also when and why to do it.

  6. Teaching Students to Become Self-Determined Learners

    Children are born learning machines who want to learn and can organise and manage their own learning. Unfortunately, today children have little choice over what they do in school and how and when they do it. Children prepared in this ‘other-determined’ manner will be poorly equipped to navigate an adult world requiring that they act autonomously and self-direct learning to acquire skills in rapidly changing environments. In Teaching students to become self-determined learners, Michael Wehmeyer and Yong Zhao explore the how and why of self-determined learning - which emphasises autonomy and choice, turning over ownership for learning to students by supporting them in engaging in activities that are of personal value to them, thus enabling them to act volitionally.

  9. Learning First, Technology Second in Practice: New Strategies, Research and Tools for Student Success

    Students’ attention levels are high when they use digital devices, but how can we move them to an equally high level of commitment to their learning tasks? Author Liz Kolb’s extensive research into this question led to the development of the Triple E Framework, in which the learning goal - not the tool - is the most important element of a given lesson. Understanding how students learn is built into the framework, which is designed to help teachers make strategic technology choices and instructional decisions based on the learning goal and the science of learning. This book extends and deepens the teaching in Kolb’s bestselling book Learning first, technology second.

  10. Research-Based Strategies to Ignite Student Learning: Insights from Neuroscience and the Classroom, Revised and Expanded Edition

    Thanks to unprecedented advances in brain science, we know more about the brain today than ever before. But what does that science tell us about how we learn? How can we capture the power of neuroscience research so that it benefits our students? Judy Willis and Malana Willis answer these questions with clarity and insight, translating recent research on the brain and learning into understandable concepts and practical strategies to use across the curriculum, spanning all grade levels from Foundation to post-secondary. Willis and Willis describe how the brain converts a vast amount of sensory input into long-term memory and durable understanding - and how educators can use this knowledge to guide students to more successful experiences in school and beyond.
