1. Introduction   (To contents)

This area examines how human beings learn, and uses the insights of mainstream science and especially cognitive science to clarify misconceptions  (myths) that have entered the education system and prevented students and teachers from fulfilling human potential.

I start with the a cognitive science model of human learning  [2]  and then follow this with a Monograph [3]  released in 2013  by Dunlosky et al (the team included Professor Dan. Willingham see  for a video of him debunking Learning Styles theory here) that reviews the top 10 approaches based on a review of the literature.  

The Scientific American magazine then did a summary of the paper [4] that makes it much more understandable and clearer to read.

The rest of the sections [4] onwards on this page cover further approaches beyond the top 10 outlined in sections [2] / [3]. I then finish with  a summary of the theory of ‘cognitive load’ (hence reducing variety and pace) which is linked to  ‘problem solving’ strategies and some background on sections [3] and [4].
