Product description

Review

" If ever there was a book that needed to be written for our field, Urban Myths About Learning And Education is it...should be essential reading for all graduate students, not to mention faculty, administrators (K-12 and higher education), and educational policy makers."  --TechTrends, Urban Myths about Learning and Education

"...provides useful summaries of a wide array of issues that the authors believe are myths." --PsycCRITIQUES

"A marvelous compendium of plausible-sounding ideas about education that have seeped into popular culture, but have little or no scientific support. Carefully documented yet a pleasure to read, this book should be required reading in all teacher training programs." --Daniel T. Willingham, Professor, University of Virginia

 

"If ever there was a book that needed to be written for our field, Urban Mythes About Learning and Education is it.  Pedro De Bruyckere, Paul Kirschner, and Casper Hulshof have created an important contribution to our literature base, a text that should be essential reading for all graduate students, not to mention faculty, administrators (K-12 and higher education), and educational policy makers.  This book makes significant strides in debunking many of the prevalent misunderstandings and misinterpretations of frequently cited educational research claims.  Learning styles, digital natives, multiple intelligences, and brain training, they are all here and thoroughly analyzed for their veracity."--Barbara B. Lockee, Virginia Tech for TechTrends
