Applying Theory to Practice: Primary, Secondary, and Tertiary

The main purpose of this book has been to build up an overview of educational psychology within frameworks derived from the most recent research both on how students learn and on information processing. It was argued that educational psychology has little direct influence on teaching methods. Its effect comes more from the way teachers individually interpret these ideas. Thus this discussion about practical applications should be taken as no more than a series of illustrations of implications that the author sees in the ideas presented earlier.
