The passion to learn : an inquiry into autodidactism by Joan Solomon( Book )

15 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first book to provide a detailed overview and analysis of autodidactism, or self-education. Beginning and ending with comprehensive and stimulating discussions of learning theories, The Passion to Learn includes fourteen case studies of autodidactism in informal learning situations. These wide-ranging case studies reflect the inherent diversity of autodidactism, yet four common themes emerge: emotional/cognitive balance; learning environment; life mission; and ownership of learning. The final chapter addresses the implications of autodidactism for educational theory, research, philosophy and psychology. This inquiry into autodidactism provides fresh insight into the motivation to learn. It shows how closely cognition, emotion and sensory perception act together in learning processes and draws upon memory studies, neurobiology, complexity theory and philosophy to illuminate the findings.; At a time when such issues as participation in education, lifelong learning and alternative, non-formal modes of teaching and learning are in the forefront of international educational discourse, this fascinating, inspiring and timely book will be of great interest to anyone involved in the practice or policy of teaching and learning.

Science of the people : understanding and using science in everyday contexts by Joan Solomon( Book )

11 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is about demotic science, that is the science 'of the people', in somewhat the same way as democracy is about being ruled 'by the people', but there are substantial differences. People often define democracy simply and memorably as 'one person - one vote'. That is based on a profound sense of the equality of individuals: but it is easy to see that there may well be a great difference when it comes to people's scientific knowledge which cannot be defined by any voting mechanism. The demotic science of people is that science that they believe they know, and use in discussion. Chapters include: - An Approach to Ethics and Action - Risk - Interpretation and Change - Scientific Literacy in Post-Modern Space and Time This book is essential reading for those involved in Science education and educational policy"--
