"This textbook is based on two beliefs shared by the authors: (1) that the heart of educational psychology is the psychology of learning and (2) that for school people the ultimate test of a theory of learning is its influence on the all-round growth of young people when applied in the classroom. The book presents the more important psychological facts and theories that have a clear and direct application to educational practice, and only these. The text is designed for the use of students who are preparing for educational work, regardless of the individual's particular objective in the educational field. In the selection of subject matter the authors have paid attention not only to the standard topics in educational psychology but also to a considerable number of newly explored areas of the subject, such as creative activity and audio-visual learning. Particular attention has also been given to effective methods of study and self-directed learning"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2014 APA, all rights reserved).
