Abstract

Examines the recent developments in the neuropsychology of education within the context of more traditional theories Prepares pre-service teachers for the diverse range of students they will encounter when they start teaching Covers the developmental characteristics of children and shows how developmental phases impact on learning and behaviour Integrates theoretical and practical content related to the socio-environmental factors that impact on development, behaviour and learning.

"Understanding Development and Learning: Implications for Teaching opens up the landscape of educational psychology to pre-service teachers and how they can use its principles to foster learning.

The text focuses on creating a better understanding of how we learn and how this information can be used to create more effective teaching methods, curricula, and educational policy. It features contemporary research, such as neuroscience, at the nexus of learning and development alongside traditional theories. It offers a greater scope into the developmental characteristics of children and how these impact on learning and behaviour across all sectors of education focusing on the science of learning.

It also incorporates theoretical and practical content related to the socio-environmental factors that impact on development, behaviour and learning. It investigates how to apply psychological principles to educational contexts in order to enhance learning and teaching quality and encourages reflective practice, helping pre-service teachers develop their personal philosophy of learning and teaching."--Publisher website

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
