Social Processes in Children's Learning

Light, Paul and Littleton, Karen (1999). Social Processes in Children's Learning. Cambridge Studies in Cognitive and Perceptual Development, 4. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press.



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.
