This light-hearted but thoroughly researched book identifies 35 popular myths around education and learning, and tries to uncover if there is any truth in them. Along the way, the authors discuss why these myths are so entrenched in the public consciousness and what can be done to retrain parents, teachers, policy makers, and the public to know better.
Each chapter examines a myth, and then presents the evidence behind the story, including different learning styles; gendered subject differences; brain training techniques; and the impact of the Internet on learning.
In listing research, EdCentral makes no judgment or recommendation as to its quality, validity or methodology and none should be inferred. Through peer ratings left by education practitioners, EdCentral’s aim is to support the development of a repository of shared knowledge and experience.
