Understanding and Using Educational Theories
Karl Aubrey, Alison Riley
This textbook gives readers a clear overview of a selection of the most influential thinkers on education in the last hundred year, including established names (Vygotsky, Bruner, Dewey), more recent thinkers (Freire, hooks, Claxton) and other key names whose writing has helped shaped our views on teaching and learning. This second edition includes new chapters on Albert Bandura, Dylan Wiliam and Carol Dweck.
Each chapter includes:
- Practical examples showing how theories can be used to inform classroom teaching
- Critiques of each theorist exploring opposing viewpoints and the strengths and weaknesses of different ideas
- Reflective tasks inviting you to apply what you've read to your own educational experiences.
