Visible Learning and the Science of How We Learn

Visible Learning and the Science of How We Learn

First Edition

November 2013 | 349 pages | Corwin
A landmark guide that unravels the mystery of how we learn

John Hattie joins forces with cognitive psychologist Gregory Yates to build on the original data and legacy of the Visible Learning project, examining how research into human learning processes can inform our teaching and what goes on in our schools. The authors explain the cognitive building blocks of knowledge acquisition and discuss how to maximize impact on student learning, covering such topics as:
  • Teacher personality
  • Expertise and teacher-student relationships
  • How knowledge is stored and the impact of cognitive load
  • The psychology of self-control
  • Myths and fallacies about how people learn

It was not appropriate for the teachers I work with or the children they work with. Also, I did not agree with some of the theories about learning, at least for young children.
