 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.
