Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Mostly European psychologists and science educators consider the interplay between the learner's naive knowledge based on everyday experience and new knowledge conveyed by schooling and formal education, traditional cognitive views on acquiring knowledge and new socio-constructionist perspectives, constraints on acquiring and modifying knowledge without specific learning domains, instructional aspects of conceptual change, and designing learning environments and teaching processes that promote conceptual change. The treatment might interest researchers, teachers, and graduate students in artificial intelligence, machine learning, cognitive psychology, and education. Annotation c.
