"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.
