The most current, comprehensive view of educational psychology today

The 13th Edition of Educational Psychology continues to emphasise the educational implications and applications of research on child development, cognitive science, learning, motivation, teaching, and assessment. Theory and practice are considered together, showing how information and ideas drawn from educational psychology research can be applied to solve the everyday problems of teaching. The text reflects the field as it offers unique and crucial knowledge to any who dare to teach, and to all who love to learn.

●    Cover the impact of technology and virtual learning environments. Expanded coverage in Chapter 10 includes material on inquiry learning and teaching in a digital world (see p. 397), an example of a virtual learning environment (see p. 398), the use of games in teaching, and the initiative to teach computational thinking and coding (see p. 401).

  • Address classroom diversity and individual student needs. Reaching Every Student sections present ideas for assessing, teaching, and motivating all students in today’s inclusive classrooms. 
  • Apply research directly to teaching.  Lessons for Teachers are succinct and usable principles for teaching based on the research.
