- Learning Theory Resources
- Funderstanding: About Learning
- This page gives an overview of 12 different theories on how people learn.
- New Horizons for Learning: Multiple Intelligence Theory in the Classroom
- Leslie Owen Wilson's article, Why teachers are drawn to using
Multiple Intelligence Theory in their classrooms, explains her views on why multiple intelligence theory is a big attraction to teachers.
- Theory Into Practice
- Greg Kearsley's Theory Into Practice (TIP) site is a tool intended to make learning and instructional theory more accessible to educators. The database contains brief summaries of 50 major theories of learning and instruction. These theories can also be accessed by learning domains and concepts.
- Learning Theory - Models, Product, and Process
- Mark K. Smith writes about: What is learning? Is it a change in behaviour or understanding? Is it a process? Here we survey some common models.
