Factors Affecting Learning and How People Learn

How People Learn II: Learners, Contexts, and Cultures provides a much-needed update incorporating insights gained from this research over the past decade. The book expands on the foundation laid out in the 2000 report and takes an in-depth look at the constellation of influences that affect individual learning. The report examines the science behind learning and makes several recommendations for schools, including understanding students' prior knowledge and experiences and supporting students in directing their own learning. This text will become an indispensable resource to understand learning throughout the lifespan for educators of students and adults.
