As a teacher trainee it is essential to understand about the theorists behind a lot of the education system today. This book is the BEST book i have
found, it is very easy to read and allows you to understand the difficult theories of Vygotsky, Piaget and Gardner. This is an essential buy for
anyone involved with teaching.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent overview 12 Oct 2007
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am not a teacher, but a web developer. I was recently required to learn the concepts and theories behind the process of learning/teaching to aid the development of online interactive content for a large multimedia client.

Having bought several books to help me achieve this aim, I can say that this book was by far the best of the pile. In the end it was one of only 2 books I needed!

It is a short read, but appears to cover everything required to gain a broad understanding of the subject.

Also recommended is Teaching today (Petty). Using Ways of learning as an overview to learning styles, and Teaching Today as an overall teaching manual, I quickly found a solid grasp of Learning styles and its place in the mainstream.

I should also mention that I have in the past written books myself, and have acted as the Technical editor for a previous Amazon USA Computer book of the year. With this in mind, I must close by saying that Ways of Learning is one the better technical books I have read in some time. Straight to the point and well written. Recommended.
