Description

The order that material, for both facts and skills, is presented or explored by a learner can strongly influence what is learned, how fast performance increases, and sometimes, even that the material is learned at all. In the proposed volume, the contributors argue that these effects are more pervasive and important than they have been treated. They explore some of the foundational topics in this area of intersection between psychology, machine learning, AI, cognitive modelling, education, and instructional design. They include case studies and present numerous questions that will lead to further research projects and provide food for thought for professionals working in these principles.show more

Review quote

..".full of good content and an extensive set of references."--Ergonomics in Design..".a detailed book on the role of order in learning. Authors deal with the main goal of showing the relevance of the sequence of information, topics, procedures, etc. in learning. The book is very well organized and it comes from a research program involving five work groups all interested in learning, and the influence of 'order' on learning... A great effort has been put into guiding the reader through the contents of the book in a gentle and effective manner....I would suggest this book to researchers interested in the topic of learning and teaching because it develops an original and uncommon point of view that could be difficult to find in more general educational literature; it also provides a valuable resource to reflect on the role of order in learning and teaching practice."--Paola Palladino as reviewed in Infant and Child Development ..".full of good content and an extensive set of references."--Ergonomics in Design..".a detailed book on the role of order in learning.
