Social Processes in Children's Learning Summary


Social Processes in Children's Learning by Paul Light (Bournemouth University)

This book, first published in 2000, is about children's learning and problem-solving behaviour. It reflects the increasingly close integration seen in recent years between social and cognitive approaches to researching the learning process. In particular, Paul Light and Karen Littleton examine the ways in which interactions between children influence learning outcomes. They begin by placing this topic in a broad theoretical and empirical context and go on to present a substantial series of their own experimental studies, which focus on children of late primary and early secondary school age. These investigations address peer facilitation of problem solving, social comparison effects on learning and social context effects upon the interpretation of tasks. Many of the studies involve computer-based learning but the findings have implications both for classroom practice and the understanding of the learning process. This book will be a valuable tool for researchers, teachers and practitioners interested in the social processes of children's learning.

Social Processes in Children's Learning Reviews


"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
