#change11 Thoughts on learning
Cathy, Cathy Anderson, Nov 15, 2011
I am feeling somewhat cynical about learning theories ..this certainly could be due to my lack of knowledge and background in research into learning theories, so when it gets down to it all I am just a cynic. I have spent years working with students who need remediation in basic skills such as writing, reading [...] Related posts:#change11 Open Education Resources; Rory McGreal, Tony Bates, and Direct Instruction ..
