As learning experience designers and educators, we are the beneficiaries of cognitive science research that focuses on memory and learning. We now have a solid collection of books that explain the science of learning and how to apply it. What fascinates me is how each book is unique in the topics it covers and the approach the authors take. In this article, I review three of the latest books on learning science—one is a new edition.
Clark Quinn’s latest book is a welcome addition to the collection of learning science books for instructional design. It is user friendly and conversational though the concepts are deep.
