Dynamic memory : a theory of reminding and learning in computers and people by Roger C Schank( Book )
32 editions published between 1982 and 2007 in English and Japanese and held by 965 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Roger Schank's influential book Dynamic Memory described how computers could learn based upon what was known about how people learn. Since that book's publication in 1983, Dr. Schank has turned his focus from artificial intelligence to human intelligence. Dynamic Memory Revisited contains the theory of learning presented in the original book, extended to provide principles for teaching and learning. It includes Dr. Schank's important theory of case-based reasoning and assesses the role of stories in human memory. In addition, it covers his ideas on nonconscious learning, indexing, and the cognitive structures that underlie learning by doing." "Dynamic Memory Revisited is for all who are concerned with education and school reform. It draws attention to how effective learning takes place, and it provides ideas for developing software that truly helps students learn."--Jacket

Making minds less well educated than our own by Roger C Schank( )
6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 702 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This 19th-century conception of the educated mind weighs heavily on our notions of how we educate our young. When the focus of education is on intellectual and scholarly issues, as opposed to issues such as communications, basic psychology, or child raising, we are continuing to rely on outdated notions of the educated mind that come from an elitist view of who is to be educated and what that means. To accommodate the realities of today's world it is necessary to change this elitist view. We need to rethink what it means to be educated, to reconceptualize the very idea of education as a process that forefronts and values learning by doing. Students need to learn how to think and to learn by doing - not how to accomplish tasks such as passing standardized tests and reciting rote facts." "In this book, Roger Schank sets forth the premises of his argument, cites its foundations in the Great Books themselves, and illustrates it with examples from an experimental curriculum that has been used with K-12 students." "Making Minds Less Well Educated Than Our Own is essential reading for scholars and students in the learning sciences, instructional design, curriculum theory and planning, educational policy, school reform, philosophy of education and higher education, and anyone interested in what it means to be educated in today's world."--BOOK JACKET

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 616 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Roger Schank argues that class size, lack of parental involvement, and other commonly-cited factors have nothing to do with why students are not learning. The culprit is a system of subject-based instruction and the solution is cognitive-based learning. This book defines what it would mean to teach thinking

Schank packs Virtual Learning with actual case histories and examples, including in-depth coverage of the Business Practices Course he developed for Andersen Consulting. After working with Schank, Arthur Andersen, the world's largest consulting firm and the first to implement virtual learning, reported that dramatic improvements resulted from their training programs and other companies have asked to purchase their training systems
Designing world class e-learning : how IBM, GE, Harvard Business School, and Columbia University are succeeding at e-learning by Roger C Schank( Book )
15 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and Chinese and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The majority of today's corporate training programmes are weak, inefficient, costly and hated by the employees they are supposed to train. Worst of all, they are boring. This is the opinion of author, guru, and leading visionary educator, Roger Schank, argues that his "learning by doing" approach to e-learning course design offers a dramatic alternative to traditional training - and traditional e-learning. Schank's approach to e-learning is based on stories and entertaining case histories told by subject matter experts - in a way that lets students practice, and fail, over and over again in a risk-free computer environment

"Engines for education is about how we can make a revolution happen in the schools. We cannot continue lecturing and testing on what we think is important to teach.

Inside case-based reasoning by Christopher K Riesbeck( Book )
5 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Introducing issues in dynamic memory and case-based reasoning, this comprehensive volume presents extended descriptions of four major programming efforts conducted at Yale during the past several years. Each descriptive chapter is followed by a companion chapter containing the micro program version of the information. The authors emphasize that the only true way to learn and understand any AI program is to program it yourself. To this end, the book develops a deeper and richer understanding of the content through LISP programming instructions that allow the running, modification, and
Beliefs, reasoning, and decision making : psycho-logic in honor of Bob Abelson by Roger C Schank( Book )
5 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
It is not unusual for a festschrift to include offerings from several areas of study, but it is highly unusual for those areas to cross disciplinary lines. This book, in doing just that, is a testimony to Bob Abelson's impact on the disciplines of social psychology, artificial intelligence and cognitive science, and the applied areas of political psychology and decision-making. The contributors demonstrate that their association with Abelson, whether as students or colleagues, has resulted in an impressive intellectual cross-fertilization
