DESIGN EFFECTIVE LEARNING EXPERIENCES WITH THIS UNIQUE GUIDE We need to learn new things constantly to keep pace with our crazy, information-packed environments. Many of us are also being asked to share our knowledge with others, even when teaching isn't in our job descriptions. But if you've ever had your attention wander during a boring class, or fast-forwarded through a tedious exercise, you know that creating a great learning experience is harder than it seems. And even when someone makes it through that book or course, how much of it is going to stick? In Design For How People Learn, you'll discover how to use the current science and theory about how people focus, learn, and remember to create materials that enable your audience to gain and retain the knowledge and skills you're sharing. Using accessible visual metaphors and concrete examples, Design For How People Learn will teach you how to: * *Use the fundamental concepts of learning design to make yourself a better learner *Attract and maintain your audience's attention *Effectively communicate your knowledge to others. *Make learning sticky.

‘Wonderfully illuminated by children's essays, stories, poems, pictures and plans, this ground-breaking book offers a unique snapshot of the perceptions of today's school pupils’. -French bookstore Lavoisier www.lavoisier.fr In 2001, The Guardian launched a ground-breaking competition called ‘The School I'd Like’, in which young people were asked to imagine their ideal school. This vibrant and compelling book presents material drawn from that competition, offering a unique snapshot of perceptions of schools by those who matter most - the pupils. In 2011, The Guardian re-launched the competition and this updated 2nd edition reflects upon the next generation of reflections and summarises, through the children’s insightful commentary, what has changed over the intervening decade. The book is wonderfully illustrated by children's essays, stories, poems, pictures and plans. Placing their views in the centre of the debate, it provides an evaluation of the democratic processes involved in teaching and learning by: • identifying consistencies in children's expressions of how they wish to learn • highlighting particular sites of 'disease' in the education system today • illustrating how the built environment is experienced by today's children • posing questions about the reconstruction of teaching and learning for the twenty-first century. The School I’d Like: Revisited offers a powerful perspective on school reform and is essential reading for all those involved in education and childhood studies, including teachers, advisors, policy-makers, academics, and anyone who believes that children's voices should not be ignored.
