A book to help parents to make their children's digital playtime educational. Digital play, when used appropriately, can be a powerful tool for learning skills such as planning, time management, co-operation, creativity, and digital literacy. The book's clearly articulated strategies help parents use digital media in a more effective manner and, at the same time, set effective limits and implement a healthy "play diet" for their children. A section devoted to exploring specific strategies for using digital media with children in specific populations -- such as children affected by ADHD, autism spectrum and learning disorders, and other mental health and educational issues -- is also featured, as is a list of specific games, apps, and tools to make game-based learning most effective.
At the time, the book was not much ofa success, largely for two reasons: (a) there
was a lack of research evidence on how learning works (that is, the science of
learning), and (b) there was a lack of research- based principles concerning how

Praise for How Learning Works "How Learning Works is the perfect title for this excellent book. Drawing upon new research in psychology, education, and cognitive science, the authors have demystified a complex topic into clear explanations of seven powerful learning principles. Full of great ideas and practical suggestions, all based on solid research evidence, this book is essential reading for instructors at all levels who wish to improve their students' learning." —Barbara Gross Davis, assistant vice chancellor for educational development, University of California, Berkeley, and author, Tools for Teaching "This book is a must-read for every instructor, new or experienced. Although I have been teaching for almost thirty years, as I read this book I found myself resonating with many of its ideas, and I discovered new ways of thinking about teaching." —Eugenia T. Paulus, professor of chemistry, North Hennepin Community College, and 2008 U.S. Community Colleges Professor of the Year from The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and the Council for Advancement and Support of Education "Thank you Carnegie Mellon for making accessible what has previously been inaccessible to those of us who are not learning scientists. Your focus on the essence of learning combined with concrete examples of the daily challenges of teaching and clear tactical strategies for faculty to consider is a welcome work. I will recommend this book to all my colleagues." —Catherine M. Casserly, senior partner, The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching "As you read about each of the seven basic learning principles in this book, you will find advice that is grounded in learning theory, based on research evidence, relevant to college teaching, and easy to understand. The authors have extensive knowledge and experience in applying the science of learning to college teaching, and they graciously share it with you in this organized and readable book." —From the Foreword by Richard E. Mayer, professor of psychology, University of California, Santa Barbara; coauthor, e-Learning and the Science of Instruction; and author, Multimedia Learning

E-learning has grown at a considerable rate, and current projections show no slowdown in the near future. The National Center for Education Statistics estimates that between 2000 and 2008 the share of undergraduates enrolled in at least one online course grew from 8 percent to 20 percent. This study refers to e-learning as all forms of electronically-supported instruction, which range from videotaped lectures posted on the Internet; learning management systems such as Blackboard that distribute lecture notes, syllabi, and assignments; online collaborative simulations; and interactive systems that use artificial intelligence to deliver customized instruction. This study reviews four meta-analyses that have been conducted on e-learning research. By combining the results of multiple studies, researchers can find an overall estimate of a particular relationship. Although the methodology of the studies included varies significantly, these meta-analyses provide the most comprehensive assessment of the effectiveness of e-learning relative to other delivery media.
