Overview

This book is about children's learning and problem-solving behavior. Paul Light and Karen Littleton address, in both theoretical and empirical terms, the ways in which interactions between children influence learning outcomes. The authors describe a series of their own experiments conducted with groups of school children. Many of the studies involve computer-based learning and problem-solving, but the findings are of more general significance. In particular, they have implications both for classroom practice and the understanding of the learning process. This book is a valuable tool for psychologists and educationists.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The studies presented and discussed have a gentle progession from the simple to the more complex, thus taking along the average reader. The material is compact and scholarly with helpful illustrations. It is well referenced and it is itself a very valuable reference on the impact of social interaction on learning in school age children." The Canadian Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Review
