Discusses the best methods of learning, describing how rereading and rote repetition are counterproductive and how such techniques as self-testing, spaced retrieval, and finding additional layers of information in new material can enhance learning.
A Chronicle of Higher Education "Top 10 Books on Teaching" Selection To most of us, learning something "the hard way" implies wasted time and effort. Good teaching, we believe, should be creatively tailored to the different learning styles of students and should use strategies that make learning easier. Make It Stick turns fashionable ideas like these on their head. Drawing on recent discoveries in cognitive psychology and other disciplines, the authors offer concrete techniques for becoming more productive learners. "If you want to read a lively and engaging book on the science of learning, this is a must." --Hazel Christie, Times Higher Education "Many educators are interested in making use of recent findings about the human brain and how we learn...Make It Stick [is] the single best work I have encountered on the subject. Anyone with an interest in teaching or learning will benefit from reading this book." --James M. Lang, Chronicle of Higher Education
This book explores the science of learning through a myriad of stories, real life accounts, and personal findings by the authors. The book, much like learning itself, is not confided simply to the classroom.
The purpose of this paper is to analyze and create a discussion regarding the human science of learning. For the last two semesters, I have been involved in tutoring students in the principles of accounting. The key difference between these two semesters was my mindset towards learning. My first semester tutoring I taught "firing from the hip." Simply answering questions or working problems myself and explaining them as I went along. And yes, I do believe this style of tutoring helped these students. Looking back however, I can't help but think of myself as someone living in the 17th century who was more than content with riding their horse. That is to say, I was missing out on massive potential (the automobile) because I believed what I was doing was enough. Relaying back to my tutoring, this massive potential I was missing out on was the understanding of some of the science and techniques behind learning. To kickstart my second semester of tutoring, I read the book Make it Stick; The Science of Successful Learning by Peter C. Brown, Henry L. Roediger III, and Mark A. Mcdaniel. This book explores the science of learning through a myriad of stories, real life accounts, and personal findings by the authors. The book, much like learning itself, is not confided simply to the classroom. Instead, it covers topics ranging from sports, neurosurgery, to even jumping out of an airplane. By reading and examining this book, it gave me an entirely new outlook with which to view my tutoring. Coming in the next semester, I was armed with a brand new arsenal of "weapons" I couldn't wait to try out. Just as guns sometimes jam, some of these new teaching techniques fell flat. However, many more proved to be very successful in helping students learn materials faster and for longer. This paper will be going into detail on a few of those techniques and the experiences I had when trying them out. Lastly, I think it would be amiss for me to solely discuss how the science of learning effected those whom I was teaching. For this new knowledge has had a very considerable and lasting impact on me as well. As such, I will also be including some personal anecdotes I have experienced in my own life following my research into the science of learning.
Please read this!" —Benjamin Riley, Founder of Deans for Impact "Teachers need this book. Students need this book. Powerful Teaching should be required reading for all teachers.

How can we teach better quicker? In Powerful Pedagogy, Ruth Powley, Love Learning Ideas blogger and experienced teacher and school leader, debunks teaching and learning myths and shows how the more we know about pedagogy, the more able we are to make informed and efficient choices about our practice, saving ourselves valuable time. Focusing on building sequences of learning rather than one-off lessons, it is an antidote to ‘quick fix’ books, empowering teachers as professionals in possession of ‘powerful’ pedagogical knowledge that can be used to improve teaching in a sustainable way. Powerful Pedagogy draws extensively from a wide range of educational writers and research, offering an accessible synthesis of what really works in the classroom. Together with strategies to put theories and research into practice, each chapter contains a handy list of questions for the reflective practitioner. It explores reasons for the confusion over what constitutes effective pedagogy in recent years and presents practical research-based solutions, outlining successful and efficient: Modelling of excellence Explaining for understanding Practising to fluency Questioning as assessment Testing to permanency Marking for improvement Effective planning of lessons and curriculum sequences. Powerful Pedagogy allows teachers to understand how to make the best choices about what works in the classroom, improving the quality of teaching. It is an essential companion for trainee and experienced teachers in all sectors, and for school leaders and educational trainers.

Over recent years the field of Science of Learning has increased dramatically. Unfortunately, despite claims that this work will greatly impact education, very little research makes it into teacher practice. Although the reasons for this are varied, a primary concern is the lack of a proper translation framework. From the Laboratory to the Classroom aims to consolidate information from many different research disciplines and correlate learning principles with known classroom practices in order to establish explanatory foundations for successful strategies that can be implemented into the classroom. It combines theoretical research with the diverse and dynamic classroom environment to deliver original, effective and specific teaching and learning strategies and address questions concerning what possible mechanisms are at play as people learn. Divided into five sections, chapters cover: A Framework for Organizing and Translating Science of Learning Research Motivation and Attention as Foundations for Student Learning Memory and Metamemory Considerations in the Instruction of Human Beings Science of Learning in Digital Learning Environments Educational Approaches for Students Experiencing Learning Difficulties and Developmental Characteristics of Gifted Children Brain, Behaviour and Classroom Practice Forging Research/Practice Relationships via Laboratory Schools This fascinating text gathers an international team of expert scientists, teachers, and administrators to present a coherent framework for the vital translation of laboratory research for educational practice. Applying the Science of Learning framework to a number of different educational domains, it will be an essential guide for any student or researcher in education, educational psychology, neuropsychology, educational technology and the emergent field of neuroeducation.
